About the C++ Developer (C++, C++ Developer, Developer) role
A top tier investment bank has recently developed a new set of algos for their futures and options trading desk and require a top level technologist to work on implementing them into the primary electronic trading platform while fine tuning the systems performance. The strategic electronic trading platform is experiencing messaging and latency issues largely attributed to clashes between incoming market data feeds and out-going order routing messages. The belief is that significant performance improvements can be achieved with intelligent re-design and tuning of the current platforms' feed handlers and market adapters as opposed to making major changes to the electronic trading platforms core architecture.
