Senior Software Engineer


Talos operates at the intersection of crypto and capital markets. We build high-performance reactive systems and deliver solutions quickly to keep pace with the changing digital assets space. As a Software Engineer at Talos, you’ll work with the team to develop Talos’s backend trading and settlement platform. Our platform is built from scratch to handle the unique challenges of the digital assets market. Responsibilities include designing and building order routing algorithms, connecting to liquidity providers, building position management and risk systems and performance tuning.

We look for engineers that can take responsibility for ownership of the full development lifecycle, all the way from product, design, and implementation, to testing, deployment and monitoring. The core team is made up of engineers that know building great systems takes time, and we spend the time on non-functional requirements like safety, security and performance. We value strong communication skills and the ability to get things done in a collaborative environment. Experience building trading systems for traditional markets is preferred but not required.

Join us in this unique opportunity to build the company and infrastructure that powers this emerging asset class.
