Job description: We are looking for a smart, experienced developer with a solid background in crafting high-performance mission-critical code.
The main focus of this position will be the hands-on development of new features for our options market making system. Our system is on the .NET platform, but if you are the right person for this job you are able to switch platforms and languages with ease. We use F# and Python as well as C#, and we are happy to pick up new languages and technologies that help us get the job done, build our skills and stretch our brains. The system has enough variety to challenge and interest anyone – a big, complex, information-dense user interface, a high-throughput, low latency parallel computational core, server components, interfaces to exchanges, market data sources, execution and back-office systems.
The team is 100% senior, and everyone can and does do everything – requirements, architecture, design, coding, test automation, integration, and deployment. You will be surrounded by smart, dedicated professional coders who are passionate about building great systems. You will need strong problem-solving, critical thinking and communication skills as well as programming chops.
You will NOT have to sit through boring meetings, fill out paperwork or write pointless "status" e-mails that nobody reads. Group One is big enough to offer great benefits and infrastructure but small enough to be free of "big company BS". We don't care about "face time" or "box checking", but we do care about producing great work and having fun doing it.
At Group One, we don't have the luxury of writing mediocre software. Our whole business runs on the systems we write, and we are dedicated to agility and continuous improvement so that we can make them better every day.
This position is located in New York City or Chicago - we will not accept applications for those interested in working remotely.
Skills: Substantial track record developing performance-critical multi-threaded code, ideally in the electronic trading space. Solid background in .NET / C# preferred.
Group One Trading, LP is an equal opportunity employer.
