Our Platform Services team is an integral part of the Compute and Storage Platforms (CASP) team at SIG and shares responsibility for building and managing all 11,000+ servers and 100+ PB of storage that composes our critical trade focused infrastructure. Joining Platform Services is the first step in building an engineering career with SIG and provides you with opportunities to:
Rotate across technology spaces
As part of the team, you will be able to rotate with senior engineers specializing in Windows, Linux, Virtualization, Storage, and open source technologies. During these rotations you will partner with engineers to learn the fundamentals of their spaces and help them solve complex problems from building out new environments, evaluating and creating new applications, performance tuning, automation, and configuration management.
Work with mentors
In each rotation you will be paired with one or more mentors that will guide you through your technical growth and SIG’s environment. In addition to dealing with day-to-day project work, together you will pinpoint your areas of interest and avenues for growth. You will also work closely with the rest of our teams through design/white board sessions, problem solving discussions, and ongoing project and team updates.
Address and solve challenging technical problems
At SIG we want your help to solve challenging problems! Partner with technologists across SIG’s environment to troubleshoot application, network, hardware, and other issues while learning and debating the best solution to fit the scenario. You will have the freedom to test and implement your solutions at scale in our onsite labs consisting of over 600 physical and virtual servers.
Engage with bleeding edge technology
SIG is always looking at the latest technology to see where we can increase speed and performance for competitive advantage while managing risk and enhancing stability. You may have the opportunity to help test out new hardware that isn’t generally available (server hardware, network cards, flash storage), work on emerging platforms geared toward container orchestration (Kubernetes, Service Fabric), or work on high performance clustered environments responsible for driving our quantitative trading.
The shift for this role rotates between 7:00am-4:00pm, 9:00am-6:00pm and 12:00pm-9:00pm. Applicants must be willing to work these shifts.
