CTO Needed for Startup - Financial Technology

Looking for: Developer

We are building the future of financial scanning and trade execution technology for individual traders and quantitative hedge funds and need a CTO to lead the development.

Quant Technologies is rejuvenating an existing technology that gained tremendous traction from 2008 to 2010. With a new team assembled and patent recently approved, this technology will be re-written on both the front-end client side and back-end server side. There are about 10,000 US equities listed on the various exchanges – NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX. This is too vast a list for a broker, trader or fund to be able to efficiently find proprietary trading opportunities in real-time. The technology was initially built to allow traders to create custom filters to scan thousands of stocks in “real-time” looking for their bespoke setups. The amount of data is tremendous and the output has to be fast and reliable upon delivery. Flexibility, latency and reliability are the 3 most important features any trading application needs to really focus on. We are going the extra mile by combining these 3 with an intuitive and extensible interface so non developer/traders and developer traders alike can really leverage the services and power we are providing them with.

Our executive team members have proven track records:

  • The CEO previously was an intricate part in launching a financial software company, raised millions in funding, participated in many media and panel discussion, and created a brand where clients wanted to work with their company.
  • The current CTO (which the ideal candidate will be replacing but receiving continued mentorship from) is an MIT graduate and one of the most distinguished developers in the financial industry.
  • The Founders built and currently maintains a major hedge fund and broker dealer on Wall Street catering specifically to quantitative traders.

We need someone to complete this team with the passion, eagerness and leadership qualities to be successful.
