This critical role sits in a small team of some of the best developers around, they are considered the Commando or Seal team Operators of the firm.

You will be looking to develop in a fast paced, with good attention to detail in a challenging environment. The flat hierarchy creates high visibility for top performers, and the opportunity to see contribution impact the bottom line.

This is a rare opportunity to join a team that rarely hires (due to retention).

This is a UNIQUE opportunity, so much so if you are looking to trade in the future this is an opportunity to experience trading infrastructure in a small business.
