I'm looking to connect with candidates of proven pedigree in architecting and building software infrastructure on behalf of a Hedge Fund I am partnering with. The fund looks to attract talented technologists that pride themselves on technical excellence, clean code, have an inquisitive mind when building architecture, and adhere to the highest standards possible from a software coding standpoint.

 

As such I'm looking for a software architect to help lead, design and create a brand new distributed system for an elite trading team within the fund. The trading team in question operate in a collaborative and dynamic fashion, and their standards are geared towards ensuring they have the best in class, from alpha, to strategies to technology. They have cultivated a successful business through constantly evaluating complex problems, and evolving the solutions to these problems. This represents a fantastic opportunity for any technologist that have previously built slick robust systems capable of handling large numbers of transactions. Please note this does not need to be trading transactions, highly scalable system builds in technology are also of extreme interest. A rather pertinent point to note is the fact this system will not be built or replicate an ultra-high frequency trading system. This system is not about speed, it is about intelligence. Experience with low latency technology is therefore attractive but by no means essential.

 

In terms of the desirable skills for this role they are as follows:

 

  • Significant experience designing and architecting distributed, high-throughput systems
  • Proven pedigree developing in either C++ or Python
  • An understand of multi-threaded programming and multi-layer programming
  • Experience of working with large amounts of data and building custom compilers
  • Prior experience of working with both STL and Boost
  • Full lifecycle software development exposure
  • Have an understanding of mathematical methods
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

 

 

Finally, whilst I don’t want to steer the emphasis of this role away from technology there is a mid to longer term chance this role will lead to quantitative research so if that is something attractive in the long term its worth considering.

Interim OD Lead

Yes I would give the service I have received as a 9/10 - when compared with other recruiters but certainly as an approach and recruitment process Vertex is very good. I have personally spoke to Lewis and a recruitment colleague who I have to say were very professional, very clear providing timely feedback and next steps which is important as a candidate. Good communication skills demonstrated by both professionals in verbal, email and text. I would certainly recommend Vertex moving forward and most certainly recommend Vertex to Clients looking to place key people into their organisations and Change teams. I always look at define, attract and select as a 3 step process in candidate selection.. Lewis certainly scored Highley on all 3 stages from my perspective

I worked with Danielle for 2 years where she supported me with building my team of DevOps consultants across Europe. She found a way to embed herself into the team, understand what I was looking for and present a solutions which worked well and matched my requirements. I certainly recommend Danielle and would be more than happy to work with her again in the future

I would definitely recommend Jude and Vertex. Jude is one of the few people who takes time to investigate the market and also the individual’s concerns rather than just matching job keywords to CV’s.
