Senior Backend Engineer

At Kollider we're looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our team.



Kollider is building the next generation of cryptocurrency derivative exchange where each position is settled in real-time, starting with Bitcoin. In practice this means a trader can instantly open a position without pre-funding a trading account or paying any transaction fees, update their margin without delay and close their position directly from their own wallet.

In this role you will be creating and enhancing Kollider’s core trading systems. You’ll be working closely with our founding team and quantitative engineer to bring new products to market and solve complex problems by providing innovative and scalable solutions with a focus on low latency automated trading.

This is a hands-on role where you will thrive on the unique technology challenges we face and see your ideas and hard work be used by traders in production. A successful candidate will have a thorough understanding of the business domain (trading, market making or derivatives).


  • Develop and maintain components of the core trading platform (order management, risk management, pricing, matching and settlement systems).
  • Improving performance and stability of the trading engine
  • Designing low-latency, high-availability applications
  • Writing a boatload of tests

Required Skills

    • At least 3 years of programming experience in a lower level programming language, i.e. Rust, C++
    • Experience running critical systems with high uptime levels
    • Experience building distributed systems.
    • Familiarity developing on UNIX systems.
    • Strong DevOps experience.
    • Ability to work collaboratively in a distributed team environment

      Nice to have

        • Experience working with time series databases
        • Experience building latency sensitive applications
        • Interest in Security
        • Experience building trading infrastructure or experience in a finance related field (FX, HFT, Electronic Trading)
        • Experience delivering real-time data over the web
        • Experience building and working on cryptocurrency projects (bonus points for anything related to Bitcoin Core/LND or Solana)
        • Experience running and managing cryptocurrency nodes for your own projects
