A small financial firm is looking to plan and build an execution platform for automated trading strategies. We require an experienced programmer in the field who has completed similar projects to consult with as we are setting up specifications and finding talent to complete this project.
The consultant will speak with the quantitative analyst team to gather requirements and prepare a detailed proposal for a software project, including software architecture diagrams, list of work to be done with timelines, and suggestions for hiring and managing talent to implement the plan. A successful engagement will lead to more opportunities for consultant work in the future.
Please be ready to talk about past software design and programming projects you have completed in a similar area.
