Careers at Wildwood

Wildwood Trading is a niche trading firm specialized in algorithmic options trading.  Our trading systems make thousands of trades daily in a variety of options products.  As a team of 5 individuals, we compete with much larger groups by staying nimble, focussing on automation, building cutting edge technology and tightly managing risk.  Wildwood was started by a software-engineer-turned trader who still writes code on a daily basis.  Wildwood has a completely flat hierarchy that is best-suited for ultra-talented individuals with an entrepreneurial bias.  We have locations in NY and SF.

We are looking for an extremely talented individual to be the 6th member of our team.

Trading System Engineer

A systems engineer at Wildwood will work on improving our low-latency trading systems.  Our system has Java, C, and FPGA components, and systems engineers must be comfortable working in all aspects of this stack.  Engineers work with quants to deliver new strategies or modifications to existing ones, and have the opportunity to work on both low-level optimizations and high-level trading strategies.  Systems engineers work in an environment with an automated daily release cycle and a focus on good software development practices such as code reviews and automated testing.
