IT Specialist

Da Vinci Derivatives is a unique trading firm that specializes in trading volatility across multiple instruments listed on major exchanges worldwide. Da Vinci was founded in 2015 by industry experts and has grown successfully in a short period of time. We are constantly looking for new opportunities and in order to facilitate our current and future growth we are looking for smart, talented and passionate people. Based in Amsterdam we do not only offer a highly inclusive fun working place, but also a package like none other as we firmly believe that attracting the best also requires providing the best.

In this role we are looking for:

A professional, driven and focused all-round Ops engineer, with a keen eye on system performance, stability and uptime. With your solid basis in computer science, a strong drive for automation and some healthy skepticism of new technology fads, you will take on responsibility for architecting, implementing, maintaining and monitoring our rapidly growing, intercontinental production environment.

Due to your strong engineering mindset and 'keeping-a-clean-house' mentality you are always fully in control of not only “what” is running in production, but also “how” these production systems are behaving; potential failures and bottlenecks get addressed long before they have a chance of actually hurting the firm. You will be working closely with a small team of highly skilled, smart and dedicated traders and developers, together coming up with pragmatic and to the point solutions not only for our day to day business challenges, but also to helping grow our start-up level company into one of the biggest players in the market.

Must haves:

  • Extensive experience using and administrating Linux systems
  • Solid Bash or Python skills (to be used for automating the environment)
  • The ability to quickly pick up new things and run with them without having a 9 till 5 mentality

Nice to haves:

  • Experience in network architecture, setting up colocations
  • Knowledge/experience managing Windows systems
  • Knowledge/experience managing trading systems
  • Knowledge and affinity with the financial markets

What we offer:

  • A once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a successful and fast-growing young company
  • A very exciting and dynamic work environment
  • An opportunity to learn from the best in the field
  • The freedom to come up with great ideas and the space to push these to completion
  • A base salary of EUR 60K to 80K (depending on the level of experience) and a variable pay plus excellent career prospects
  • For people coming from abroad we provide a relocation package and expat service
  • Lunches and dinner during work hours
  • Reimbursement of travel costs
  • In house gym available
