Job Description

At Citadel, Software Engineers are responsible for building the systems that power every aspect of our investment process, from research and analysis to trading, risk management, funding and settlement. Working side by side with investors and quantitative researchers, we use our technical skills to drive critical commercial outcomes. If you’re interested in financial markets and excited by the prospect of having real impact in a fast-paced environment where everyone is inspired to be their best, we’re excited to meet you.
Our most successful engineers are critical thinkers who know how to dissect the problem as proficiently as they know how to build the solution. While we look for technical acumen, commercial acumen is just as important. That includes the ability to flex, change course, and iterate without always having pre-defined specs.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY:
From system engineers who create next-gen platforms to desk-aligned developers who partner with investment teams to increase efficiency and maximize returns, our engineering opportunities are as varied as they are challenging. If you are selected for an interview, one of our recruiters will be in touch to review the specific roles, teams and regions that best align with your skills, seniority, and experience.

  • 6+ years of professional software engineering experience
  • Solid computer science fundamentals 
  • Expert level programing skills in at least one of the following: Java, C++, Python
  • Proven track record in software design and development
  • Excellent analysis / problem solving skills
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills
  • Ability to manage multiple tasks in a demanding and dynamic environment
  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related STEM discipline
