WHAT YOU’LL DO AS A JAVA SOFTWARE ENGINEER

At IMC, technology is not a department; it’s at the heart of everything we do. Developed in house, our innovative software makes millions of trading decisions daily, and we win by making better and faster decisions than our competition.

The Data team comprises software and system engineers, and is responsible for a multi-petabyte in-house data platform that drives a huge range of trader analysis, simulation, reporting and insights. The team operates and develops pipelines to collect and store a wide variety of data published from trading systems, alongside query engines and access APIs to use it, using a mixture of open-source and custom implementations as needed.

You’ll write reliable, high-performance software while balancing time to production with quality and testability. Advanced automated testing and daily deployments will allow you to achieve agile and incremental benefits.

Within a complex landscape of varying systems and technologies, you’ll be constantly challenged to consider trade-offs between latency, throughput, simplicity, scalability and maintainability.

 

OUR TECHNOLOGY STACK

Who You Are:

  • A seasoned developer experienced with Java and comfortable with other languages
  • Used to optimising your application for resource usage and throughput, including heap and thread analysis, and use of suitable metrics
  • Able to understand the behaviour of a complex system of interacting parts
  • Familiar with Kafka, Avro and Parquet

As a software engineer, you’ll have the chance to learn everything you need to know about financial markets – it’s just one of the things that make this job more interesting than other tech roles.

Our flat structure and open, collaborative culture stimulate the sharing of ideas, knowledge and technology between our different teams and offices.
