Non trading-related SWE at top hedge fund?
I applied long time ago for a different position, but offered to interview for a ‘python developer’ position for their finance team at Hudson River Trading. Looking at the job desc., it looks like the work is about building report gen. infra, etc... and what ppl call ‘back office’ position which many ppl say is not good for career, but 1) I wanted to see how these trading firms operate 2) I could likely expect higher comp 3) I heard HRT is really hard to get into.
Currently doing infra dev (not at FB) at AANG, but I don’t mind doing data eng-ish work. Has anyone taken or considered similar move?
Current TC: 280k
