Job Details

Software Engineer for Research and Development (Python/C++)

Job Info:

Category: Software Engineering
Company Description: Leading investor in major financial markets
Location: New York, NY
Job Number: 9753

Job Description:

This is a software engineering position in the “Research and Development” umbrella of Securities.  The team works with senior researchers (QRs) in the firm and focuses on tools and data infrastructure, mainly in the area of model building (using statistical methods).  As well as interacting with QRs, the team also works with other software developers supporting research teams.  Interacting with and addressing the needs of the clients will be an important component of the job.

Currently, the work is quite high level (using Python to write a distributed data transformation framework), and is predominantly focused on large quantities of data, ease of access and large scale (not HFT-level) efficiency.  Other projects down the line will become more focused on low-latency, so an excellent knowledge of C++, systems etc. is a plus.

We are looking for a junior- to mid-level developer to join this new team.  The ideal candidate will be a talented and enthusiastic developer with passion for technology and desire to learn.  Excellent working knowledge of at least one programming language (Python, C++) is preferred.  Any additional knowledge in the areas of functional programming, compilers, graph algorithms, type systems or mathematics are a plus but not a requirement.

The candidate is expected to be highly self-motivated and independent, and contribute to all aspects of the software development lifecycle, from design and implementation of new features, to testing, and bug fixing.



Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or an allied field.
