Job description

As Quant Developer at Volue Trading Solutions, you will: 

• work at the heart of our algorithmic execution strategies running on a contstant basis.. The platform needs to constantly evolve and adapt to changing markets, so we need you to implement new features, fix bugs, define appropriate monitoring, etc. 

• be critical to the business when expanding our value proposition beyond algorithmic execution by serving as sparring partner from the quantitative trading side, help to get projects off the ground, prototype and refine as needed. 

• drive the whole company towards a more quantitative thinking, enabling it to take decisions based on hard data. You’ll be hands-on doing so, bridging gaps in the current solution as needed. 

Who are we looking for? 

• Software development: the best ideas only work, if you can put them into code. Clean, elegant, tested code, that separates concerns – the complexity of the domain would kill us otherwise. You pick your tool according to the task at hand. The Execution Platform is written in C# and Python is always handy for some data analysis or quick and dirty tasks. The rest is up to you. 

• Problem solver: you love to solve problems, riddles small and large, and take a pragmatic approach doing so. Markets constantly evolve, and so our solutions need to do so as well. It’s usually worth picking the low hanging fruits first, while making the software flexible enough to extend it later. 

• Data driven decisions: you breath data. It’s what your decisions are based on. As an algorithmic trading business, data is abundant. It’s key to identify the relevant inputs and model the dependencies. But data also drives your strategic day-to-day decisions. If the required data doesn’t exist yet, you are happy to get your hands dirty, and get it … somewhere. 

• Algorithmic Trading: if you got a background in algorithmic trading, that’s great. If you know the ins and outs of the European power and gas markets, that’s brilliant! We can also teach you the domain on the job, though. What’s certainly needed, is an interest in markets and algorithmic trading and the motivation to learn the peculiarities of the European intraday power and gas markets.  

• Team player: you will collaborate with all areas of our business, developers of the different software platforms, quants, the infrastructure, sales and customer success teams. You’ll need to bi-directionally understand and explain requirements and find solutions collaboratively. 

• Great communicator : you have good communication skills in both German and English

Why should you apply? 

• Working at the algorithmic core of an innovative, growing company, enabling the green transition 

• Creative work environment with great learning opportunities in software develop, data analytics and algorithmic trading 

• Large degree of influence in shaping & developing the role further 

• Great colleagues in one of Europe’s most exciting green tech companies  

• Attractive salary with profit-sharing/competitive compensation package 

• 30 days annual leave 

• Flexible working hours and the opportunity to work from home
