We are seeking highly-motivated Computer Science, Engineering, Math or Physics majors who are interested in learning and getting hands-on experience with electronic trading systems. Our system is built on the .NET platform using C#. So, familiarity with a "C-style" object-oriented language, such as Java, C++, or Objective-C is strongly desired. The system has enough variety to challenge and interest anyone – an information-dense user interface, a high-throughput, low latency parallel computational core, service-oriented architecture, and interfaces to exchanges' market data and execution systems.
During this internship, you will create and deliver custom tools that test or simulate different components of our software system in a test environment. While doing so you will be mentored by senior developers and gain exposure to the business of equity options trading. You will gain hands-on experience with a team that develops proprietary software in an ever-changing, fast-paced, and competitive environment.
