Quantiq Partners is a high frequency trading company. You will work with a small team on core trading infrastructure development with two primary goals in mind. First is the ongoing improvement of existing software, as measured by an increase in clarity, simplicity, and maintainability while improving latency. In our experience the simplicity and speed of software is a reflection of how well one understands the problem, and thus much of our time is spent in discussions versus actually writing code. We also intend to maintain a relatively small code base, and any git commit that removes lines while maintaining latency and clarity is highly regarded. The second goal is to expand our trading infrastructure to new trading venues. Some venues will require us to learn a new market data protocol, while others are effectively copy paste with very important asterisks. In either case, the addition of a venue into our normalized framework tests our assumptions and generally deepens our understanding. Both goals have a direct and measurable impact on business performance.
If you fail to check all the boxes but can strongly check others please don't hesitate to contact us. We're looking for talented people, not some imaginary perfect fit.
