Apply for this job

We are looking for engineers to power Hudson River Trading's continued expansion into global markets. As an engineer based out of our Singapore office, you will play a critical role in the process of establishing HRT's presence in Asia-Pacific markets and work closely with our algo and operations teams to ensure the continued success of our trading. You will also be deeply involved in the continuous, ongoing process of optimizing trading in markets HRT already has a presence in.

In this role, you'll be expected to own the process of entering new markets and manage market changes over time. With this responsibility, you'll gain broad exposure to both the technical and business aspects of our trading operation. It is difficult to overstate the impact of this role - you will immediately contribute to the bottom line as HRT begins trading in markets it previously had no presence in and HRT’s trading in existing markets becomes more profitable.


  • In your spare time you: code, tinker, read, explore, break things, and have an insatiable curiosity for all things computer related... you'll find like-minded people here.
  • You possess a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field
  • You are capable of working independently as well as part of a team
  • You can analyze and fix problems quickly
  • Can look at code, figure out how it works, and how to make it better
  • Can describe software designs at a high level (the abstract interface), low level (step-by-step algorithm), or anywhere in between
  • You really like to work with people who challenge you and make you better at what you do​


  • C++ experience required
  • Familiarity with UNIX operating systems and comfort at a command line
  • Must be fluent (reading, writing and conversing) in English
  • Adept at working independently and in self-management
  • Experience developing market data and order entry systems a plus
