Project description

We need brilliant engineers to help bring this technology into new markets and new deployment models. If you want to work in a team with people at least as good as you, if you want to solve the problems encountered when analysing the firehose of network data in real time - capturing, decoding, analysing and indexing at 40Gb/s and more and providing solutions for consumers of real-time and historical, raw and normalised market data - then Corvil is what you are looking for.

Warsaw Expansion

Given the success of our Krakow office, we are now expanding to build out a high-class team in Warsaw. We are excited to speak with candidates who will be happy to work remotely initially with a view to setting up an office location in Warsaw when the time is right. We especially want to speak with candidates who are keen to work in a startup environment

Your tasks

  • You will innovate and influence the technical direction of our projects and mentor a team of talented software engineers. As tech lead, you will have control over the design and architecture of our development environment and solutions, with a view to delivering high-quality, scalable code using agile methodologies. You will be expected to write and review code, setting the standard for the team. With frequent production releases you will be accountable for signing off on what goes out the door and what doesn’t.
  • We are at a tremendously exciting stage with extensive innovation on-going and an exciting vision to fulfill. As an example, we are currently building out the Virtual Corvil Data Engine which will help our customers scale into hybrid-cloud and cloud environments. With deep support for ~600 protocol flavours, automation is key to driving accuracy and performance of our products at scale. This role requires a leader who will ensure that the quality of our software remains at a very high level, while continuing to meet the demands of an ever-changing, dynamic landscape in the world of trading and beyond.
