Technology is the core of our company's culture and essential to the value proposition of our low-latency trading system. Customers demand order-to-trade latencies on the order of 100 microseconds and and a robust high-availability system.

The trading system itself is written entirely in high-performance single-threaded, event-driven, zero-GC Java. We live and breathe performance at Direct Match and find that our most successful engineers simply enjoy eliminating microseconds from the critical trading path.

The technology team at Direct Match is deliberately small and focused. Software engineers are expected to own the full stack trading system software: matching engine, FIX & binary ports, proprietary GUI, and operational tools. You’ll also spend time building/architecting our second generation system.

Software Engineers reports directly to our founder/CEO, Jim Greco, who wrote the original matching engine.

Technical Requirements

  • Expert in writing low-latency Java
  • Prior experience coding front office trading systems
  • Experience using multicast messaging systems
  • Mid/high-level Linux skills
