What you will do:
The final goal of your work is the formation of profitable trading strategies for trading on financial markets. To achieve this goal, you would have to research market data using various mathematical tools and models in probability theory and statistics. You would also need to form your own hypotheses based on the research you had carried out. Finally, you need to implement and test your hypotheses using languages such as C++ and Python. Based on the results obtained, you would then have to create your own trading models.
What we need from you:
• Basic knowledge of C++: pointers and arrays, structures, basics of Object-oriented programming (OOP). (Optional)

The bests hypotheses become strategies that are launched in ultra low latency infrastructure and beat competitors all over the world.
What you will do:
One of the key success factors of HFT funds is the development of ultra low latency infrastructure. You will have to take part in the process of developing a distributed high load infrastructure. Such infrastructure involves connectors to exchanges, data collectors, and the core used for trading with minimal delays. The main tool for solving problems is multithreaded asynchronous programming using C++. Most of the tasks will not have prepared solutions that will motivate you to explore the topic helping to increase the efficiency and stability of the existing trading platform.
