A New York team focused on equities trading is seeking an experienced Production Engineer who will own front-office trading issues and focus on continuously improving the automation level, scalability, and fault-tolerance of the production stack. The Production Engineering role requires working with infrastructure developed in Python and C++ that supports the full life cycle of the trading operation: from acquiring data, to active research and optimization, through deployment and live trading. The Production Engineer will automate and improve the existing infrastructure, maintain correctness and consistency of production data sources, and ensure that trading proceeds smoothly across global markets. This front-office role requires a strong attention to detail, a conscientious attitude, and the ability to work collaboratively with members of the trading team and the overall firm. Members of the team have diverse academic and engineering backgrounds, and would regard a successful, high-impact Production Engineer as a key partner of the trading team. Required Skills Three to five years of production support experience at a trading firm or asset manager. Excellent understanding of Linux and Python, as well as competence in C++. Ability to learn and deeply understand the production trading system in order to quickly identify and solve complex operational problems in time-sensitive scenarios. This will at times require working outside of a “9 to 5” timeframe if issues arise outside of US market hours. Able to work on several projects at once and successfully drive each one to completion. Meticulous and exacting attention to detail, along with a passion for continuously improving, automating, and simplifying systems. Strong communication and collaboration skills, as well as a positive attitude.
