Job Description

This is a hybrid role, based in G-Research’s office in Dallas.

G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm. We hire the brightest minds in the world to tackle some of the biggest questions in finance. We pair this expertise with machine learning, big data, and some of the most advanced technology available to predict movements in financial markets.

This role is based in G-Research’s office in Dallas. Opened in 2022, the Dallas office is a key infrastructure hub where we work on the latest technologies in a cutting-edge environment.

The Role

The Trading Ecosystem Engineering (TEE) team builds and operates the key systems, workflows and services that our internal users and customer teams rely on in their research.

Currently, we build our own systems in-house, but we are also looking to adopt more Open Source Software in the future.

Our Engineers are full-stack, with a stronger predominance for back-end, and we work closely with internal and external customers to understand their needs and drive best practice through our deep knowledge engineering best practices.

Key responsibilities of the role include:

  • Crafting large-scale, highly available and reliable service-oriented systems

  • Optimising and troubleshooting software performance

  • Designing APIs for use in a real-time environment

  • Front-end web development

  • Building strong, collaborative relationships with technical and non-technical stakeholders, focussing on maximising business value from TEE’s work

  • Steering, and contributing to the technical deliverables of your team, ensuring that the requirements of the business are met by making data driven decisions

  • Participating and actively engaging with the incident management process and a blameless continuous learning culture

  • Ensuring the smooth running of a geographically distributed team

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a Software Engineer who is motivated and passionate about solving challenging software issues that make a difference to G-Research.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Development capabilities with one or more high level languages, preferably C#, Angular and TypeScript

  • Object-oriented programming and strong problem solving skills

  • A proactive approach to spotting problems, areas for improvement, performance bottlenecks, and process improvements

  • The ability to understand the inherent trade-offs between various software architectures as it relates to performance, resiliency and fault tolerance, load balancing, and data consistency

Don’t feel you need to tick all of these boxes. If you are a smart, motivated, passionate Software Engineer then we want to hear from you.

Why should you apply?

  • Market-leading compensation plus annual discretionary bonus

  • Informal dress code and excellent work/life balance

  • Excellent paid time off allowance

  • Sick days, military leave, and family and medical leave

  • Generous 401(k) plan

  • 16-weeks’ fully paid parental leave

  • Medical and Prescription, Dental, and Vision insurance

  • Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance

  • Employee Assistance and Wellness programs

  • Generous relocation allowance and support
