Build high-performance technology to support a global proprietary trading company

Role overview

Work beside talented team members at one of the world's best proprietary trading groups, located in Chicago. They enable you to build, grow and design financial applications using functional languages and new technology.

Role:

DRW Trading has an opening on its Treasury Development team. The Treasury developers focus on applications for calculating margin requirements, managing capital, and various reporting functions essential to the Treasury Department and across DRW. The Treasury team is small and new engineers will immediately be tasked with making meaningful contributions to our systems. The developers are required to work closely with the Treasury staff to create technical plans to solve pressing business problems. At DRW we strive for an environment where technologists are free to pursue solutions to the problems of the business free from arbitrary management constraints and supported by excellent technical resources. All development teams at DRW believe in rapid deployment and feedback, automated testing, and cohesive, transparent, lightly-coupled service architectures.

Responsibilities:

  • Designing, programming, and testing a variety of applications
  • Working with multiple languages, platforms, and operating systems, particularly Ruby, Clojure, Linux
  • Learning and promoting new technologies
  • Testing at the unit, functional, and integration level
  • Working on legacy code as well as green field development
  • DevOps tooling and process
  • Providing on-call support as needed
  • Collaborating with various software teams, the IT department, trading desks, and other business units

Desirable Experience:

We are looking for strong developers of any stripe, but familiarity with the below will give candidates a leg up in working on Treasury systems.

  • Financial technology and systems
  • Front and back-end development experience
  • Rails, Java C/C++, Git
  • HTML, CSS,JavaScript
  • Postgres, SQLite

Candidates should have strong initiative and have proven experience independently driving projects to completion. We work from high-level requirements and programmers are expected to gain an intimate understanding of the business.

DRW Trading is a principal trading firm, which means no outside investors or third-party funds, and we trade for our own account in markets around the world. Their trading is diverse—across asset classes and instruments, using our own models and systems—and it’s this diversification that sets us apart. Founded in 1992 by bringing together technology, research, and risk management to capture trading and investment opportunities, and we still take that approach today. Though we’ve grown to more than 700 exceptional people in six cities around the world, we have the spirit of a start-up and a constant focus on results.
