QuantRec.com - We're Hiring: Python Developers / C++ Developers (needing 3 OR MORE)
Large Financial Company / NYC
$$ All levels from Junior to Expert Level
As of 7/5/11: Group wants to hire multiple Python Developers, either Pure Python Developers with Strong CS Background or Python Developers with either C++ or Java or C#. NO finance is required as well as on other trading desks.
The team wants to hire at all levels, junior, mid level and senior level. This team is developing the core trading platform for the firm which will cover all asset classes and this team is responsible for all aspects of the system from the low level infrastructure code to the data technology to the front end, but the bulk of the development which needs to be done is the server side development - the core business logic to the core systems. This is a team which only hires best of breed talent, whether junior or senior level candidate, must have excellent academic and/or professional accomplishments which make them stand out.
The trading desk team is looking to hire Mid or Senior level Developers with Python and either Java or C++. They too value tech skills and interpersonal fit over business knowledge so they'll hire a non industry developer, but they have a slight preference for developer with some business knowledge for this team.
For the Core Team the bulk of the development will be done in Python but there will be some C++. They are happy to hire a pure Python developer, but some C++ is desireable and they will not hire a pure C++ developer. Financial background is not particularly critical to the job function. Candidates need to be able to show great fluency in Python. The "extras" they're really looking for though are some background with dependency graphs, python twisted, python numpy, python numeric. . In general they would also like developer with experience developing large-scale, high performance systems as well as developers who have experience developing software solutions to work with very large data sets. The GUI will be developed in Python WX which is also a plust. This may show up in math people or compiler people or data mining people.
For the Trading desk team the preference is for Python and Java, but they'll consider C++ too. The core team will put more value on an advanced degree in computer science whereas this team is more likely to be happy with a bachelors degree.
