Core Java Developer Fintech High Freq Trading

Core Java Developer Fintech High Freq Trading – £80,000 + bonus and benefits

Quant Capital is urgently looking for a Core Java Developer to join our high profile client.

Our client is a well known specialized High Frequency FX Prop Trading firm.

Their platform is based on distributed low latency systems involving complex multi-threading where performance is key.  This is a fantastic opportunity for a Core Java J2SE expert to join a growing firm

This is a broad role for a Java developer encompassing a complex front end trading application, performance improvement, market connectors, and analysis tools.  You will be involved with Automated Trading and Risk systems, with a focus on low latency and high throughput models.  Systems are concurrent, real time and require excellent multithreading and heavy messaging knowledge.  You will work with the latest technology and will interact with traders and developers on a daily basis.

You do NOT need financial experience to apply in fact I would encourage those from the games industry for example to apply.

Core Java Developers MUST have:

  • Solid Degree from a known institution
  • 4 years commercial java J2SE experience
  • Core java, good knowledge of Server Side J2SE components
  • Strong object-orientated application design and architecture skills
  • Multithreading & Concurrency
  • Messaging experience (TCP, Corba, Tibco, JMS or similar)
  • Performance & Tuning


  • Commercial FIX Protocol experience
  • Experience with various Java APIs (e.g. JMX, JDBC, JMS)
  • Experience of low latency/high throughput systems is a plus

This is a very specific role and candidates will be rewarded significantly if they can demonstrate the above skill set. Please feel free to discuss details at length by giving me a call. Developers without serious experience in the above will be wasting their time.

The environment is that of Facebook or Google, relaxed open with time to think and make the right decisions. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed with an open dress code. This is a role for techies, those who are motivated by the sharp end of technology and the possibility of making serious money doing something you are passionate about.

My client is based in Central London
