Team Structure

The workflow on the team is a lightweight mix of scrum and kanban, with a low level of formality. There’s a small QA team, but engineers test their work too. 

The team is all remote, with staff in a half dozen countries ranging from the United States to Argentina to Ukraine. In order to effectively perform the duties in this position, conversational fluency in both Russian and English is a must. Spanish is a plus, but is not required. 

At this position, you will also have a chance to work with active traders. You will be able to learn about markets and trading as a whole, dive into backtesting and algorithmic trading. In general, if you’re interested in trading and want to dive deep, then this is the right place for you.
