We are currently looking for a junior level
software engineer. The candidate will not be expected to have familiarity with
the financial industry, but must be willing to work in a team environment that
will expand his/her knowledge in this area. We want people that are yearning to
work on cutting edge software and who are highly interested in learning how to
make Java programs really fast. We understand that this is a junior position,
and you may not have the experience of writing highly concurrent multi-threaded
applications, but we want you to have some basic understanding of how threads
leverage system resources to interact with each other (think locks,
semaphores). You will be working mainly on the server side of our application,
but should expect to learn other parts as well. This is an exciting opportunity
and will open the door to lots of growth potential within this high growth
venture. Here are some of the reasons why someone would want to work for us:
  • Entrepreneurial,
    small office (no politics, friendly)
  • Fast-paced
    environment where serious effort will result in serious reward
  • Growing company
    with lots of growth potential
  • State-of-the-art
    product with a huge market need
  • Great benefits: Equity
    incentives, excellent health and dental plan, 401K plan, PTO, daily paid
    lunch, beverages, and more
 
The
skills we look for in candidates:
  • The
    candidate should have at least a 4 year degree in computer science/engineering.
  • The
    candidate ideally should be familiar with Java SE and have some experience
    working on medium to large scale software projects.
  • The
    candidate should be comfortable working in various OS environments including Microsoft
    Windows and Linux.
  • The
    candidate should have a clear understanding of programming multi-threaded
    applications and various ways of accessing shared data using synchronization
    primitives.
  • The
    candidate should have an interest and willingness to learn about the financial
    industry, more specifically options.
  • No
    sponsorship available at this time (US citizens or permanent residents only)
