Orbis is partnered closely with a market maker who is on the hunt for its next quantitative engineer (C++) in London. Our client is completely self-funded and is seen as one of the ‘big players’ within the trading space.

You will join a small algo trading-focused team of engineers, quant researchers, and traders so although this role is 90% hands-on coding there is also some expectation of stakeholder management across the business.


  • BSc degree or higher in a STEM-related subject from a reputable university
  • Expertise in C++ development (inc. low latency programming, multithreading)
  • In-depth knowledge of FX connectivity, FIX protocol, and front-office environments
  • Previous experience dealing directly with quants, traders, and key business stakeholders

This is an urgent requirement and the business is ideally looking to get candidates onboarded as soon as possible.
