Software engineers in Flow Traders are working on applications that support the core business of the company. Our systems make it possible for Flow Traders to be present and competitive on exchanges worldwide. Many of these systems need UIs that not only share the robustness and security of our trading systems, but also are intuitive, consistent across our products and beautiful to look at.
