Quantitative Trading

Role overview

As one of the top UK Tech hedge funds πŸ’³, this company is looking for bright engineers πŸ’‘ to join their core software engineering team. Their business is driven by technology and as such, they are looking for engineers who have the same mindset and were bitten by the tech bug from an early age.

All trading processes at this company are automated βš™οΈ and ultimately this hedge fund is more akin to a modern software house rather than a traditional finance firm right down to their values, culture, and concentration of work.

As well as this passion, this team will be looking for engineers with exceptional fundamental computer science knowledge πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“, and who enjoy tackling problems which are challenging at a conceptual level. They are looking for strong polyglots, but their main core teams are now currently using Scala.
