High-frequency trading, cryptocurrency, working with powerful computer programs, and use of complex algorithms… We offer you a unique opportunity to join an Amsterdam-based trading firm with an innovative and open culture at the heart of their business.
You have my curiosity
The Netherlands has always been at the forefront of financial trading and this firm is looking to keep it that way. This trading company is one of the world’s largest liquidity providers that help maintain and improve the overall transparency and efficiency of the ecosystem. As a High-Frequency trading firm, it breathes technology. Make no mistake, IT is their core business. Performance, speed, and reliability are key factors of their success. Which is where you come in. Do you like thinking out-of-the-box, do you have a creative mind, and do you love working in a high-paced environment, then we are looking for you!
Now you have my attention
C++ plays a crucial role and therefore we are looking to hire the best C++ developers to write code, create new designs and maintain existing applications with a focus on low latency, and stability. Strong software engineering skills with C++ (preferable 17) as your primary language will also definitely come in handy, though we’re mainly focused on the willingness and ability to learn. A deep understanding of Linux is always a good thing as is, experience with Data Structures, Threading, and Algorithms. If you already have tools like Bamboo for continuous integration or Python or Bash for scripts in your toolbox that would be awesome. If not, no worries. As long as there is space in your toolbox, we can get you equipped. They are always open to new ideas or tools, the ability to express your ideas and thoughts to your colleagues will be a great thing. My ideal candidate is curious, methodical, and a multi-tasker for sure.
So this trading thing, what does it pay?
Pretty damn well, to be honest. Starting with a base salary between €75.000 and €100.000 gross a year, excluding the secondary benefits. And those secondary benefits, are second to none. From a fully catered lunch every day and flexible working to a royal end-of-year bonus. At this firm they really care about professional and personal development; they do encourage their people to be the best at anything they do by offering the right training. On top of that, they have their own private gym where several health coaches provide the people with the right personal sports programs. You know I said speed was key? What are you waiting for?
