Model Infrastructure and Reporting Team Lead

Belvedere Trading is a leading proprietary trading firm proudly headquartered in downtown Chicago. Our traders work hard to provide liquidity to the market through their market-making activities and are the masters of a diverse set of commodities, interest rates, exchange-traded funds (ETF), and equity index options. From the beginning, we began iteratively investing in our proprietary technology and committing to building our systems from the ground up. Our trading models and software systems are continually re-engineered, optimized, and maintained to stay on top of the industry. This wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated efforts of our technology teams who utilize and perfect our innovative technology solutions. 
High-performance proprietary development is the source of our success and competitive advantage at Belvedere, further fueling our passion for performance. We are a team driven by intellectual curiosity, seeking answers that will change not only how we trade in this technological age, but also the future landscape of the trading industry. We place a high premium on defining, developing, and deploying high-performance trading software using a team-based, holistic development approach. We look for passionate team members that excel and their contribution is critical to our continued success. 

At Belvedere Trading, our Team Leads are responsible for designing and leading projects from start to finish. They are thorough in code reviews and push for quality from their team members. Team Leads are very well versed with the current codebase, its constraints and problems, all the while gauging risk impacts by looking at design and code. This role is also tasked with nurturing and enforcing technical practices among team members.

 The Model Infrastructure and Reporting Team is responsible for the generation of trader-facing reports, including risk, PnL, position, and trades, while also handling the generation and dissemination of theoretical values. The team is also responsible for the data architecture of how the model inputs are stored and used in our system, and for improving its extensibility. While the latency sensitivity is on a different scale as other parts of the system, it is still crucial to optimize, especially when considering the speed at which the model is updated, and the dissemination of those updates and theoretical values to the rest of the system.

What you'll do

    • Display strong vision and leadership skills
    • Recognize system deficiencies, and architectural needs and implement effective solutions
    • Monitor and ensure systems are running correctly and manage testing and deployment queues
    • Manage and support team-owned components ranging from production issues to long-term strategic planning
    • Identify performance issues and thoughtfully tune and optimize the platform
    • Work with product and trading to determine most important projects to work on and which team members should work on them
    • Motivate the team to achieve team goals and encourage collaboration among members
    • Provide training and mentorship to team members and ensure the team is cross-trained
    • Understand the team’s system integration with the rest of Belvedere’s systems
    • Help resolve team conflict and demonstrate respect when working with others
    • Collaborate with product managers and stakeholders to develop solutions for trading systems

What you'll need

    • Experience in architecting and implementing performant report-generating systems
    • Experience in architecting and implementing performant theoretical engines
    • Experience managing a team to support risk reports, PNL reports, Theo Engines, Model Fitting services, and general model architecture
    • Well-versed in all areas of delivering technical solutions
    • Strong focus on testing and automation
    • Experience working in C++, C# and Python code base
    • High-quality standards for code and design
    • Proven track record of providing constructive feedback to management and peers
    • Excellent combination of technical and interpersonal skills with strong written and verbal skills
    • Experience in proprietary trading environment preferred
