Working as a coder at Hudson River Trading (HRT) means working on a small, highly productive and efficient team. We know you see "Trading" in our name and assume you'll be relegated to some dark corner to code for the "business" but this impression is entirely wrong. At HRT, a fully automated trading firm based in NYC, the code you write *is* our business, so it is everyone's job, top to bottom, to make sure our team has everything they need to do their jobs well. We are looking for smart programmers who love to code, like being challenged, hate to climb corporate ladders, and don't mind the added bonus of having hard work rewarded through recognition and extremely competitive compensation. At HRT, coders are integral to the success of our trading, and they know it. You can always expect to be challenged by the ever-changing financial markets, and find yourself working on critical software in an extremely fast-paced, real-time environment. As a Software Engineer on HRT's Core Development team, you will step into an incredible learning opportunity; HRT's distributed system is on the Pareto frontier of latency and throughput. You'll do machine learning over huge datasets in a massive compute cluster. You'll develop deep knowledge of C++, OS internals, CPU architecture, and networking hardware and protocol. And you will be surrounded by amazing developers who are honing their skills every day. You'll be amazed at what you accomplish. Or do you prefer hardware? Want to craft unique FPGA designs with nanosecond precision? Passionate about exposing malicious bugs in complex designs and fixing them? HRT builds custom, high-performance hardware to support our trading infrastructure. We use a mix of industry standard and open-source tools for our development. You'll be part of a team pushing boundaries in low-level computer architecture, logic design, tool writing, and the interface between hardware and software. The Skills:
