Senior Software Developer

Imagine business-critical financial software where shaving off every microsecond of processing time matters, where code quality is very high and your colleagues are awesome.

Does this vision put a smile on your face? Then a job as a backend developer at Alipes Capital might be right for you.

At Alipes you will be part of a team developing in-house financial software in C#. This will have you:

  • Implement, verify and optimize financial algorithms
  • Create infrastructure to support analysis of new algorithms and execution of the existing ones
  • Improve automated monitoring of the algorithms

In doing so you will get a chance to tackle a variety of performance problems related to GC, networking and parallelization.

You will get instant validation of your work and experience short feedback cycles, where going from inception to deployment can be a matter of hours. There will be no red tape to cut and no sales people to consult.

All of this will happen in an informal atmosphere where technical discussions are valued, and you are encouraged to take ownership of, and pride in, your work. You will affect the direction of the team, prioritize your work and choose the tools that get the job done.

We are a small developer team consisting of five musketeers and we get a kick out of what we do. We enjoy collaboration and are always willing to lend a helping hand. We are working alongside two other teams of quantitative analysts and economists that conceive the mathematical models. What makes this constellation work great is that all of the individual team members write code and understand that a seemingly trivial change can actually require a lot of work, and vice versa.

Need to have

  • At least 5 years of professional experience with C#
  • Working knowledge of (T-)SQL
  • A good understanding of algorithms and data structures and when to apply them
  • A scientific and inquisitive mind

Nice to have

  • Experience working with low latency systems
  • Proficiency in languages like C, C++, python or Matlab
  • Knowledge of SQL Server tuning and administration
  • Ph.d or M.Sc in Computer Science or equivalent


We aim to respond within a week of receiving the application. Afterwards you will be invited to an interview, which is followed up by a day of compensated work at our office. If you like us and we like you, you are hired.
