Java Developer

United States, New York


This is a highly selective position. This person will become a developer on a front office quantitative portfolio management team in trading operations, trading systems development, and large-scale data management.

  • Data acquisition, cleaning, storage and integrity check (including vendor contacts)
  • Alpha signal monitoring
  • Real-time execution system support
  • EOD booking and reconciliation
  • Strategy backtest

The candidate will eventually come to understand a vast interlinked system that has grown organically and has complex dependencies. However, this is a strictly development and systematic trading operations role (i.e. NOT quant research).


  • Very solid Java and SQL experiences in the linux environment are critical
  • Helpful – practical knowledge of scripting language (perl, python)
  • Undergrad or higher degree in computer science
  • Some work experience (2+ years) required, but not necessarily in finance
  • Hard working and strong desire to succeed within a growing team
  • Motivated self-learner; scrappy and ready to roll up sleeves
  • Strong troubleshooting ability; good attention to detail
  • Interest in software engineering, trading system development and maintenance
