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.  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.  We have a completely flat hierarchy that is best-suited for ultra-talented individuals with an entrepreneurial bias.

Trading Systems Developer

Location: New York, Chicago, Singapore

As a Trading Systems Developer, you will work alongside quant traders to continually improve our options trading systems.  Systems developers solve challenges related to scalability, performance, and application design as Wildwood expands into new products and exchanges.  Our systems are primarily Java-based, with C and FPGA components, and you should be comfortable working in all parts of this stack.  You will 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.  As part of a small team, systems engineers directly experience the impact of their efforts as we trade more, trade faster, and trade smarter.
