Backend development for finance startup (hackers welcome!)

at IndicatorPro in Huntsville, AL   —   Mar 29, 2014   |  
Overview
We are a fast-moving startup that has significant hedge-fund clients we are building tools for.

We have many areas we are currently developing in, and one of them is historical quotes
and hedge-fund backtesting. It's an exciting industry and can be very technically challenging.

High-volume, high-scalability, high-availability - we are looking for data geeks!
Responsibilities
Design, implement and maintain a quote-storing engine for our hedge-fund backtesting platform.
This will include reading quotes from our vendors via a C++ API (over 140,000 messages/second)
Storing those quotes in a MongoDB or equivalent database, as well as distributing those quotes to listening clients. Infrastructure already in place as well as skeleton code.
Extra (not initially required)
Maintaining/expanding our trading platform and hedge fund back-testing. No previous experience required, it's very straightforward.
Telecommuting will do - work from home!
