High Frequency NYC Hedge Fund, $120-150K

Apply for Job online

A top hedge fund is looking for exceptional Java or C++ technologists to work in their NYC headquarters on their high frequency trading systems. This is a technology driven firm made up of 95% developers and 5% traders.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work on systems that are constantly being re-engineered to be faster and more efficient in Java. They use computer-based models to predict price changes in easily-traded financial instruments. These models are based on analyzing as much data as can be gathered, then looking for non-random movements to make predictions. They trade with such high-frequency that they account for over 5% of all the trades occurring on NASDAQ some days. Some of their systems execute trades purely electronically on direction from a computer model. The fund trades across asset classes and is incredibly secretive with their methods. The ideal candidate will be from a extremely technical server side development background in Java or C++ with a high GPA from a top tier university. You should also have awards and accolades in your background from development competitions.

If interested please forward your resume to Elizabeth in confidence, highlighting your suitability for the position and referencing eier. Alternatively telephone to discuss on 212 707 8220.
