We are looking for a leader and entrepreneurial-minded Senior System Reliability Engineer to help us create solutions that modernize the industry. This exciting new platform will simplify, automate and facilitate access to financial markets alongside experienced technologists and industry subject matter experts.
This is an opportunity to join a fast-paced team with the urgency of a startup and expertise of an established organization. Along the way, you will learn about the problem space and re-imagine the solutions.

Due to the space we innovate in, your products will process billions of transactions per day in real-time and power both startup and established industry participants.
