  • Very good knowledge of Linux server administration, cluster management, and virtualization
  • Excellent command of Python and Shell scripting
  • Experience with system performance analysis, optimization, and monitoring
  • In-depth knowledge of network technologies, routing protocols, and VPNs

What we offer

  • We apply the newest technologies and trading strategies in order to gain an advantage over our competitors

  • You will be able to challenge your coding and trading skills and grow constantly while collaborating with like-minded experts in a dynamic environment that encourages continuous learning.
  • Attractive office locations in the center of Switzerland in Zug and Zurich.
  • An inspiring team that has achieved considerable success in a short amount of time with a fast growing trading business.
  • A compensation and bonus scheme that’s unprecedented in the industry
