Software development at IMC is ubiquitous. We take it very seriously and it is critically important to our success.
Some developers work very closely with traders, quants and research analysts to develop tools and automated trading strategies. They develop on top of different trading systems and also extend these with our own custom developments.
Other developers have built sophisticated monitoring and control systems to enable traders, risk managers and the Operations/Integration team to keep an overview on an ever-increasing suite of strategies.
Meanwhile, other teams are building management information systems to link trading systems to our core enterprise systems.
At IMC, software development is innovative, pragmatic and, yes, ‘fun’, even as complexity and team-size grows. Development takes place in an ‘agile’ environment with short release cycles and very close user involvement.
This applies whether we are developing a trading strategy, an analysis tool, or a risk management system to monitor our exposure to various market conditions.
