How important are millionths of a second? If you're going to buy milk at your local shop, probably not too much. But what if you were to work in an environment where it is super important? What if you were to work on a system on which you would have to maximise performance to this level?
Well, we've got something for you :)
For one of the leaders in the trading industry (voted ETF Maker Europe for 8 consecutive years in the Global ETF Awards), we're looking for a strong C++ engineer and you could be the one.
Our team in the Netherlands in now made up of 200 people and we are looking to grow with top talent.
You will be working closely with other engineers who are just as passionate about technology as you are and the traders to improve our platform in our beautiful offices in Amsterdam HQ. You will be asked to translate business requirements and ideas into software products, also improving and supporting existing applications.
You will be seeing the impact of your work in days- not months ;)
What will I do?
In the morning you will come to the office, grab a coffee, do some talk about the weather (90% of the time, let's admit it, we all do it in the morning) and then, after checking a few mails, you will have your daily stand-up meeting with your team.
You will then start working on challenging projects where millionths of a second make a difference and where clean coding and scale are extremely important. You will work with cutting-edge technology and be continuously challenged to learn more.
You will be also collaborating with the traders from time to time but mainly you will be working with the developers, QAs and testers.
Who will I be working with?
We don't discriminate on nationality and everyone is welcome. With more than 39 nationalities working here, we can say we're pretty open :)
We like collaboration and sharing of ideas and we believe feedback is very important.
We love challenges and also used to love them. We have been taking part in various contest during our lives, such as math contests, chess tournaments, etc.
Our developers all have a good understanding of algorithms and data structures, all subjects most of us studied at University and that are still a big part of our professional lives.
FYI: we also like hanging out together and we organise various activities after work sometimes, so maybe we will be taking you out for a beer on the canals soon? ;)
Sounds like this could be you?
