Job Description

DevOps Engineer - Chicago, IL - Quant Trading Firm

One of the highest performing Prop Trading firms is looking to hire an experienced DevOps Engineer to help manage and improve their low-latency trading platform. The secret to their success is through hiring driven, talented and motivated individuals and empower them by giving them visibility across the business, the opportunity to work on new and exciting projects and to work in an environment that drives innovation.

If you're interested in working on critical automation and orchestration projects for a high performing trading firm with a tech start up vibe, then this is the opportunity for you!

What will I be doing?

Supporting complex trading system infrastructure in real-time. Working with IT, Traders and over developers to solve technical issues
Design and develop new monitoring tools to improve systems
Coordinate with developers to fix defects and issues
Work with developers and trading teams to design and develop new features
What we are looking for:

5+ years in software development and DevOps experience within the finance industry (if you've supported trading systems in real-time then that would be amazing!)
Ability to troubleshoot systems
Experience working on Postgres, Luigi and Python
Exposure to any of the following: C++, Javascript, Django and NoSQL
Company Culture:

Candidates who have worked in smaller companies and worn many hats are more likely to thrive in this environment than narrowly-focused gurus (even if the focus is in DevOps) simply because you need to have context for how interconnected trading technology works in order to troubleshoot issues and find ways to improve systems. Supporting this system in real time means anything can interrupt your day so if you want to just be alone in an office writing code then this position may not be for you.

What Now?
