We are a young and small start-up company based in London, UK developping automated trading systems to be deployed on financial markets using financial engineering and quantitative models. The project has just strted off a few months ago and the company is still structuring.
Therefore, we're looking for a developer to work with us as a freelancer first, and to the extent that this developer delivers in due time some work meeting our requirements, a longer term position, including some team and project management tasks.
We firmly believe that as a company which grows and meets success, its staff walks the same path, evolves and grows in responsibility with it.
We use AlgoTrader as automated trading systems implementation and deployment platform ([url removed, login to view]) connected to InfluxDB as Data base structure ([url removed, login to view]).
We own two servers hosted in a data centre. One of these has 3 VMs to deploy the components of the differents softwares we use, to keep it organisaed and safe.
The job is:
- To review and update the components installation.
- To build some routine queries to aggregate and store live data into InfluxDB. This is made through AlgoTrader (the script should not be long as it's just about writing the queries' code). The data sources are Quandl ([url removed, login to view]), IB (http://interactivebrokers.github.io/tws-api/#gsc.tab=0). Most of the necessary tools to do so, including API, are already implemented in AlgoTrader.
- To build same routine queries for historical data download and storage. Most of the necessary tools to do so, including API, are already implemented in AlgoTrader.
- To write a very small strategy sending orders to the broker. Given a series of price, place the coresponding orders.
Beyond thsese technical skills, the succesful freelancer will show:
- Good communication skills.
- Pro activity and driving/initiative force.
- Self-driven and reliable personality.
- English speaking is mandatory, French speaking is a plus...
