Job Description

At TR REDI, we are focused on bringing a new level of efficiency, transparency and openness to the trading process by building a collaborative community of investors, brokers, technology firms and content providers. Through our modular, end-to-end trade management platform users can execute everything from simple single stock trades to complex strategies across markets and time zones and manage your risk throughout the trade lifecycle. Access our growing network of over 150 execution brokers to route Equities, Futures or Options orders globally, as well as dozens of integrated prime and clearing brokers through our expanding suite of middle office tools. Collaborate with our broker and vendor partners, who are able to efficiently plug into our platform to reach our community.

As a Server-Side Developer at TR REDI, you are able to tackle a broad range of projects focused on low latency, high speed applications in multiple languages and platforms.  From C++ to Java, Windows and Linux, back end database and inter-process communication, you should be comfortable in all tiers and have a willingness to learn new skills as we evolve with the changing technology landscape. Successful server-side developers take ownership of the products that we ship, and as such are expected to work with Product Management to determine business requirements, come up with high level designs, evaluate build vs buy options, work with QA in testing and deliver and maintain the product in production.

At TR REDI, we value the ability to think and learn over simply being well-versed in a particular language, as this allows for us to be nimble and not depend on a particular flavor of the month. TR REDI was among the industry's first providers of trading technology and has pushed the state-of-the-art forward for more than 20 years. We're building on our history of innovation to become an open, industry-backed ecosystem for the entire trading community.
