High performance, low latency, financial markets… You know where this is going right? Yup, trading. Business is booming right now and this company is looking to make the most of it. Which is where you come in.
You have my attention
The Netherlands has always been at the forefront of financial trading and this company is looking to keep it that way. As a High-Frequency trading firm, it breathes technology. For every trader on the floor, there are at least two developers. Make no mistake, IT is their core business. Because in such a highly competitive market, performance, speed, and reliability are key. Which is where you come in.
To speed up innovation and boost productivity throughout the company, a new team is being formed. And you could be a part of it. They are looking to hire the best Java Developers they can find for some of the most technically demanding projects they have. Things like building a simulation framework for large parts of the IT landscape, so changes can be properly analyzed before pushing them to production. Of course, that doesn’t mean you won’t spend plenty of time working directly with Traders. As a member of this A-team, you will get to see every part of the organization and look for ways to improve it. From speeding up decision-making processes or deployments to optimizing trading algorithms for performance.
Now you have my curiosity
Of course, you’ll need to bring the right set of tools to build the perfect solutions. A solid background in Computer Science or a closely related field is crucial. Preferably even a Master’s degree. A few years of relevant experience as a Java Developer will also definitely come in handy, though we’re mainly focused on the willingness and ability to learn. A deep understanding of Linux is always a good thing as is, experience with Data Modeling, API Development, and Algorithms. If you already have concepts like dependency injection, micro-services, or tools like Kafka in your toolbox that would be awesome. If not, no worries. As long as there is space in your toolbox, we can get you equipped.
So this trading thing, what does it pay?
Pretty damn well, to be honest. Starting with a base salary between €75.000 and €95.000 gross a year, excluding the secondary benefits. And those secondary benefits, are second to none. From a fully catered lunch every day and flexible working to a royal end of year bonus. You know I said speed was key? What are you waiting for? Click apply!
