LIFE AT IMC AS A NETWORK ENGINEER

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

IMC is a leading global market maker, using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities on multiple trading venues worldwide. We provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers.

Founded in 1989, we are an ambitious, innovative company and identified early on the importance technology would play in the fast-paced evolution of trading. This entrepreneurial spirit still drives us today and can be found in all of our offices around the world.

OUR TEAM

We now operate globally from offices in Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Our employees work closely together in multidisciplinary teams, making our success possible.

Technology - At IMC, technology is not a department, it is at the heart of everything we do. Our technologists push the limits of possibility, and then look beyond. In our fast-paced environment, short feedback loops mean projects worked on in the morning can enter production the next day.

Trading – Although our traders come from many backgrounds they all have one thing in common: they are at their best solving complex problems. Their insight into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we are trading in the right place, at the right time.

Business Support - Around the world, IMC’s business support teams are essential for sustaining our success. In our dynamic environment, we have many exciting challenges and multidisciplinary opportunities to shape our operations and make a real impact.

OUR CULTURE

Our employees are our greatest asset so we give them lots of responsibility and the support they need to make a difference. Our flat structure fosters a culture of openness and collaboration, encouraging the sharing of ideas and knowledge. It makes no difference if you have been with us for three days or three years, the best idea wins.

While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun; whether solving complex challenges or in team building, leisure and sporting activities. IMC also enables its employees to contribute towards a better society through our foundation.

Our team is currently looking for additional Network Engineers to join our team who are passionate about all aspects of networking and get a thrill out of designing, implementing and supporting high-performance networks. They will work closely with our traders, developers, quants, and performance engineers to provide best in class infrastructure solutions supporting our trading business.

Responsibilities:

  • Design, implement and support the North American networking infrastructure. Key areas of expertise include Low-latency networking, Unicast and Multicast routing, BGP, PIM-SM, as well as more advanced topics like performance tuning, gap analysis, and automation
  • Monitor and analyze the proper functioning of our network infrastructure using currently available tools, and contribute ideas for new tools
  • Proactively improve our infrastructure by contributing code to our automation efforts (e.g. Bash, Python, Ansible, AWX)
  • Accurately create and maintain documentation detailing the IMC network, including relevant procedures
  • Help support our IT security related platforms. Key areas include Palo Alto firewalls and client VPN, site-to-site VPNs, authentication systems, etc.
  • Communicate with external vendors, exchanges and providers to explore new technology solutions, implement new services or troubleshoot problems

Requirements:

  • 8+ years of network engineering focused experience
  • Excellent troubleshooting skills on wide variety of networking issues, including common Ethernet LAN problems, unicast and multicast routing, switching, packet analysis, and VPN remote access
  • Experience with multiple different network switching hardware platforms
  • Direct hands-on coding or scripting and automation with Python, Ansible, etc., is a plus
  • CCIE or CCNP certification is a plus
  • Experience within the trading or financial industry is highly preferred

About the IMC Network Engineer Team:

  • With a team size around 10, there is plenty of opportunity to mentor others and grow professionally by having other subject matter experts to learn from
  • Daily workload changes: one day you could be troubleshooting a trading problem, the next could be architecting a migration or even working with a lab to demo a new technology
  • We have a very quick feedback loop and release software early and often to get incremental benefits as they are implemented
  • We operate at the bleeding edge of technology. If something new can potentially bring an advantage we will actively invest in developing and utilizing the solution as quick as we can.
  • We believe in sharing knowledge and technology between the different offices. Much of our technology stack is shared between all three regions, and we provide opportunities to travel between the regions both for personal growth and to assist where people can have the biggest impact.
  • We employ a broad range of people with varying backgrounds. What they have in common is their superior technical expertise, their extraordinary intelligence and their collaborative approach.
