Flow Traders is looking for an experienced Python Software Engineer to join our growing Development team in New York. The ideal candidate is curious, methodical and a multi-tasker. This is a unique opportunity to join a leading proprietary trading firm with an entrepreneurial and innovative culture at the heart of its business. We value quick-witted, creative minds and challenge them to make full use of their capacities. If you aim high, the sky is the limit!
As a developer in the equity trading team, you'll be working directly with our Traders and Quant Researchers to provide solutions when they are needed - as soon as possible.
That means taking a pragmatic approach to software development without cutting corners. We like to get things done and always strive to have working code in production. Trading is an incredibly dynamic and fast-paced environment, the requirements can change in the middle of the project, and you must be ready to adjust.
You will work on tools that generate a lot of business value. Although primarily working in Python, we are a language agnostic team - you might be helping a trader with a gnarly SQL query one day, doing post-trade analytics and monitoring in Python the next, and writing a Kafka Streams topology in Java the day after. We're looking for financial technologists that can think creatively about solutions.
Some of the Technologies we use in the Development Process:
