  • Contribute towards improving the trading strategy as well as the trading infrastructure.
  • Translate trading requests into concrete technical requirements, work with focus teams to create innovative solutions and finally implement those solutions in order to enhance our systems and processes.

WHO YOU ARE:

  • You have at least 3 years of work experience and are looking for a place where you can grow
  • You have a bachelor's or master's degree in Computer Science or related field
  • You love to problem solveand troubleshoot. You have a passion for technology. You enjoy dynamic “client facing” roles.
  • Strong knowledge of and experience with Linux operating system
  • Strong command of bashand/or python scripting
  • Experience with database querying
  • Basic understanding of TCP/IP protocols
  • Experience with Kubernetes is considered a big plus
  • Experience with various ways to deploy Java applications as well as good understanding of JVM is considered a big plus
  • You are interested in learning about trading as well as continually improving your technical abilities

WHAT MAKES IT FUN:

  • IMC is on the cutting edge of financial applications, processing terabytes of data daily for mission-critical trading.
  • We always aim to use the right tools for the trade, regardless of hype. If something new can potentially bring an advantage we will often try, adopt and incorporate that new technology.
  • In this role you interact with traders and a wide range of technologists such as developers, systems engineers, network engineers and performance engineers.
  • The landscape is always changing creating new and exciting challenges.
  • We really believe in sharing knowledge and technology between the different teams and offices.
  • Working at IMC is a great way to gain exposure to and learn about financial markets and technology. We know from experience that a lot of people really enjoy learning about a field beyond their immediate area of expertise, it’s one of the things that makes this job more interesting than others.
