Sr Algo Software Engineer


Voloridge's Senior Software Engineers take pleasure in solving business problems through innovation and robust engineering practices. Expand your knowledge working directly with Senior Software Engineers, Software Testers, Dev Ops Engineers, and Project Managers.  Our Software Engineers play a supporting role in the research, design, building and testing of software that leverages bleeding edge technology at the nexus of big data and finance.  In this highly collaborative environment, you will make meaningful contributions to the software that will capture and distribute real time market data, track portfolios, integrate order and execution systems and develop interactive analytical tools to be used by both clients and mobile use.   

Drive creativity and find pleasure in your work: You love coding and technology. It is as much a hobby as it is work. Whether it is following blogs and podcasts, to downloading and trying out new projects from Github or elsewhere you have ideas you want to explore. Learning new things and bringing new ideas and solutions to the challenges we face is a key driver of innovation and excitement.

Seek continual improvement and roll-up-your sleeves: Be willing to learn whatever technologies, tools, or patterns necessary to solve a problem. These are critical systems, and you cannot avoid a problem because "someone else 'owns' the code" - learn the code, learn the domain, solve the problem.

Embrace truth and openness and practice humility and honor: We are a collection of top-performers with strong opinions but respect for the ideas of others is a must for finding the right solution. Everyone makes mistakes at times, so we don’t judge others. What is important is uncovering errors quickly, getting fixes in place, and understanding what can be improved for next time.
