HPC and Cloud Infrastructure Engineer

Optiver's Infrastructure Team is looking for engineers to build, scale, and support our large-scale research infrastructure. This infrastructure is used across our trading teams, most critically by our Futures Trading and Equity Options trading teams as part of their machine learning and data analysis pipelines. The technical infrastructure beneath those pipelines includes an on premises, highly parallelized compute cluster fed by terabytes of data, as well as a growing footprint in AWS. HPC and Cloud Infrastructure Engineers will collaborate closely with both our development teams and the rest of the infrastructure team to continuously evolve our infrastructure to meet the business' growing needs.

Technology at Optiver:

At Optiver we pride ourselves on being real engineers, not just implementers. Our infrastructure engineers work closely with developers to identify the business problems we face and determine how they should be solved. We apply a disciplined and scientific approach. We engineer simple, well-architected solutions that meet the dynamic needs of our traders. Our passion is to solve problems which really matter to the business, and we take pride in the quality of our solutions.

What you’ll do:

•  Design, optimize, and support HPC compute and storage
•  Design, optimize, and support AWS VPC and S3 infrastructure
•  Troubleshoot OS (Linux), storage, and network issues
•  Evaluate and compare both hardware, software, and cloud solutions
•  Manage capacity planning for both on premises and cloud infrastructure
•  Develop and deploy Python automation for job scheduling, monitoring, and config management

Who we are:

Optiver is a leading global electronic market maker specializing in pricing, execution and risk management. Working together, our traders and software engineers design proprietary systems and execute strategies to provide liquidity and increase market efficiencies.

Put simply, we improve the markets. That’s not merely an aspiration, but our reason for being. It requires intelligence, obviously. But in this industry, that’s table stakes. We’re seeking traders, software engineers and interns who up the ante with nerve, with guts and, most importantly, with heart. We’re looking for the bold. Does that describe you? Then opt in.
