What You Will Be Doing
As a Quant Platform Developer you will be building the tools, frameworks, libraries and applications which power our Quantitative Research and Systematic Trading.

We implement the systems that require the highest data throughput in Java. For storage, we rely heavily on MongoDB and Oracle.

We use Airflow for workflow management, Kafka for data pipelines, Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, ELK for log shipping and monitoring, Docker for containerization, OpenStack for our private cloud, Ansible for architecture automation, and HipChat for internal communication.
