Boerboel Trading – Toronto, ON


As the firm’s primary front-end developer, you will be tasked with building out a suite of visualization tools and user-interfaces for researchers, traders and business/compliance professionals. Your daily interactions will be with a group of highly skilled developers and traders to ensure that minimum latency, real-time, user-facing features are delivered; these features will be used to enable us to view inside complicated algorithms, operating on substantial volumes of data. In some cases, you will be building tools from scratch and in others, you will be enhancing existing tools and making them more user friendly.

This is an excellent opportunity to work with cutting edge applications on global trading venues and learn about black box trading. You will have the opportunity to define the direction and technologies that will be used to build out our visualization environment. Since there will be substantial autonomy in this position, a self-starter who can make strong planning, design and technology decisions, will be essential. You will work from a newly formed Toronto office but be expected to travel occasionally to our other offices in NY and Chicago.

Required Skills:

  • 3+ years of professional software development experience
  • High proficiency in JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS and at least one modern front-end framework such as React.js, Angular.js etc.
  • Experience and interest in React Native
  • Deep understanding of core UI/UX principles and proven ability to translate them to code
  • Strong front end design skills and track record in building UI for large-scale web applications from scratch
  • Experience with responsive web design and mobile-first principles
  • Solid understanding of RESTful architecture and APIs
  • Passion for a data-driven approach focused on improving the outcomes through experiments and analysis
  • Some knowledge of databases (Postgres ideally)
  • Experience with code repositories (i.e. Git)


  • Familiarity with other programming languages (c++, python, java)
  • Any experience with real-time exchange data environments (cryptocurrency exchanges, equity exchanges, futures exchanges etc.)
  • Any knowledge of high-frequency trading
