Our client is a global quantitative trading firm, operating at the forefront of Finance and Technology. They are headquartered in the United States and recently moved their European operations from London to Amsterdam. Naturally, this was induced by the Brexit. They work with a global team of around 75 engineers and quantitative researchers. To build up their Amsterdam team they are looking for strong Senior Software Engineers who can carry responsibility for the entire SDLC. This company is fixated on putting it’s people first. They look for passion and intellect which they can feed. They want the best minds to take bold action towards solving some of the world’s most complex problems.

The company was founded in 2009 and has established offices in San Francisco, London, and Amsterdam – next to their HQ. This firm develops quantitative trading strategies in exchange-traded financial products like equities and other securities. The firm is privately funded and does not accept outside investors. They only risk their own capital and not someone else’s. Of course this also means they reap their own rewards. The trading strategies are dependent on having the fastest trading systems and infrastructure. This means every bit of the system is optimized from connectivity to the exchanges, to geographical location of the server racks, the algorithms and maybe even the network-card driver. You can expect ultra-low-latency systems that require everyone’s best work to take to the next level. In the Amsterdam office, you will work with a team of 3 colleagues. You can expect this team to expand because they will hire any candidate that’s on-par with their standards.

This environment roughly breaks down into two components being; (1) trading systems and (2) research infrastructure. Examples of things you will work on are order handlers, exchange upgrades, performance improvements over the entire breadth of the systems as well as architecting trading strategies. This is something you do in close collaboration with the quantitative analysts. Your responsibility will span the entire development lifecycle. You will work closely together with your colleagues in Chicago who will also visit the Amsterdam office on a regular basis. You will even visit them for several times a year – in order to connect and work together in person. So if you have outstanding level of analytical reasoning and incredible problem solving skills, this is for you. When you’ve always been the smartest guy in the room, this is one of those rare environments that can still provide a group of peers that challenge you.
