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!
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!
MongoDB preferred but other NoSQL experience is fine
Working with scalable and high-performance apps
High-volume client/server message processing
Financial APIs (Quote APIs/Depth of book, not required)
Stock Market concepts (plus but not required)
Not relevant. There are great coders with degrees and without
Equity + Industry+ Hourly - very competitive
