Extraordinary Software Engineer
Are you the extraordinary software engineer we are looking for to drive our trading infrastructure forward?
CFH Group operates in the space of foreign exchange trading. Our core offering is an online trading platform that we deliver as a service to brokers worldwide. CFH Group recently became a part of Playtech Ltd, a UK listed company.
You will become a part of a small dedicated team of 6 software engineers that work on the core trading system. The system is built in-house and we control the full technology stack. We assume full responsibility for the system. We refine new requirements, we design, we code, we write automated tests and we support our solutions when they go live. We stay ultra-agile even though demands on precision and performance of our solutions are high.
Our software is highly distributed with a high degree of concurrency, so you must be proficient in concurrent programming. You probably have long experience with Java or related technologies, and your interests go beyond just regular programming. Maybe you have optimized code before or tried to fine tune garbage collection. Perhaps you know details of different network protocols or low level OS stuff like IPC or thread scheduling. You might be interested in hardware or know details about CPU architectures. Possibly you just miss technical challenges in your current position? Our system is real time and we have high requirements regarding throughput and latency, which means we need to understand our execution environment in great detail.
But the job is not just about technology. You will have to become a domain expert in the area of foreign exchange (FX) trading. In our line of business the devil is in the detail, and the stakes are high. You will need a sound understanding of both IT and FX to make the right decisions, especially when the heat is on. It will therefore be an clear advantage, if you have previous experience from the financial industry or the betting industry.
You will be located in our spacious office on Amerikakaj, Copenhagen. The work environment is very international. CFH Group has offices in Copenhagen, London, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong, and we have colleagues from most corners of the world.
We encourage both experienced and inexperienced applicants. If you are talented but lack experience, this is an excellent learning opportunity. If you are hardcore we can't wait for you to come and educate us.
English speaking applicants are of course welcome, but you must hold a Danish work permit.
If you have questions regarding the position feel free to contact team lead Søren Caspersen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be evaluated continuously.
