Motivated Software Person
October 23, 2008 10:12 PM

We are a successful well capitalized quantitative hedge fund looking for software engineers to complement research teams developing new trading strategies and associated infrastructure.

This is an "its us against the rest of the world" environment where you have to be very motivated to work and interested in the field or its not going to be a good fit. This does not mean you work 80hours per week, but you cant dick off on the internet all day either. I hope you understand what I am saying.

Also, while we respect passion and motivation you have to have skills. 10year veteran or college grad is fine, just come ready to code.

You have to have good basic software engineering skills, ie:
- Know how to debug code
- Language principles that can apply to all languages (oo etc)

Knowledge of finance is a major plus, in the areas of Equities (stocks), Futures, FX, Options, etc.

Specific skills you will need to use every day:
- Python
- Database kung fu (SQL, Oracle, schema design, VLDB techniques)
- English

Stuff you may use every day but probably not:
- C++
- Matlab

If interested I would love to hear from you, and I can provide more information.
