My client is a leading high frequency trading firm running fully automated strategies across asset classes. This firm operates like a software house working in the financial markets, using cutting edge technology to analyse the markets and execute trading algorithms on the global market.
Although clandestine about their trading activity and protective of their in-house technology, such firms are proud to exclaim their approach to overcoming technical challenges and the type of people they hire.

The technology driven approach to this space provides ever evolving challenges to overcome, here the most creative and talented technologists get the opportunity to genuinely innovate and create industry leading solutions. Solutions that can change the game for all and can result in some of the
greatest financial rewards of any sector.
You will be provided with a relaxed, fully catered, dress-down working environment that allows creative juices to flow. If you liked the idea of working at Google or Facebook when they were start-ups then you may find this space a very compelling environment to change the direction of your career.
