Job Description
At Citadel, Software Engineers are responsible for building the systems that power every aspect of our investment process, from research and analysis to trading, risk management, funding and settlement. Working side by side with investors and quantitative researchers, we use our technical skills to drive critical commercial outcomes. If you're interested in financial markets and excited by the prospect of having real impact in a fast-paced environment where everyone is inspired to be their best, we're excited to meet you.
Our most successful engineers are critical thinkers who know how to dissect the problem as proficiently as they know how to build the solution. While we look for technical acumen, commercial acumen is just as important. That includes the ability to flex, change course, and iterate without always having pre-defined specs.
Citadel Engineering's NXT Network provides a unique early career opportunity for premier software engineers, placing them on an accelerated development path and bringing together brilliant technical talent with extraordinary investment and quantitative teams. Through structured learning, mentorship, networking and engagement with senior leaders, high-performing engineers position themselves to embrace challenges, build impactful solutions, maximize their talents and build extraordinary careers.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY:

  • Design, develop, and deploy elegant software solutions across the firm
  • Partner with business leaders to define priorities and deliver custom solutions
  • Receive structured learning on technical and quantitative skills
  • Develop under the direct sponsorship of our firm's CTO and engage with other C-level leadership


YOUR SKILLS & TALENTS:

  • 2-5 years of professional software engineering experience
  • Solid computer science fundamentals
  • Highly proficient programing skills in at least one of the following: Java, C++, Python
  • Proven track record in software design and development
  • Excellent analysis / problem solving skills
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills
  • Ability to manage multiple tasks in a demanding and dynamic environment
  • Minimum of a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related STEM discipline


In accordance with New York City's Pay Transparency Law, the base salary range for this role is $150,000 to $300,000. Base salary does not include other forms of compensation or benefits.
