My client has a family feel and traditional values but is known as by far the best low latency consultancy in the world. They have recently implemented a FIX standard for Fixed Income Trading. They have been trading for 8 years and have around 20 people in the office so personality fit is important. They are a privately owned debt and VC free entity so equity is a serious option.
