    Tempting, but you failed to mention the name of the company, provide a link to its website, or even offer to provide that info via a private message should someone be interested in the job.

    So you're looking for someone to build/renovate some kind of web-based stockbrokering software, or something like that?

    in a word yes, its not really stocks we mainly trade fixed income products but not that that really matters. The company is drw, the website is www.drwtrading.com if you have any questions I've been working here for about a year. If you have any interest in the Job please email me at [email protected] with your resume.

    I'm not in the software side of things so I really don't have much of an idea of total compensation or anything but I can tell you the company is very young, very fun place to work. Lots of good things coming down the road, we are constantly expanding, and our methodology of trading does not lend itself to a Amaranth style blowout since we are a market maker so you have good job security assuming you don't suck. That said this isn't a job if you are a slacker. You will be working hard and pushed to meet stringent deadlines but also compensated properly. Again feel free to PM for more info.
