Coding and scripting are part of our daily life (we like python, bash, ansible, and Go to name a few). You’ll be exposed to how the technology interacts with the business side and will work closely with the Core development team on product offerings for our members. Experience with any layer in our stack (Linux, Java, C++) is highly beneficial, particularly around the areas of performance and capacity.

  • Devise release and implementation plans for new products using SRE best practices and principles 
  • Troubleshoot issues across the whole stack – hardware, software, applications, and network. 
  • Capacity planning and performance engineering related projects. 
  • Guide other business functions (e.g., development, market operations, business development, subscribers, etc.) on reliability techniques, application, and system functionality. 
  • Educate and mentor team/company on SRE best practices. 

Your background: 

  • Experience in electronic and algorithmic trading, preferably US equities 
  • Automation and Config Management experience with tools like Ansible, Puppet or Chef 
  • Hands-on experience with Linux, python or bash, git 
  • Experience with kernel bypass technologies 
  • Multicast operation and pitfalls 
  • Host side networkingpacket level understanding of network traffic, working experience troubleshooting with packet captures, etc. 
  • Experience building new or leveraging existing tools to analyze large data sets with a focus on the user experience and product performance
