Belvedere Trading is a leading proprietary trading firm proudly headquartered in downtown Chicago. Our traders work hard to provide liquidity to the market through their market-making activities and are the masters of a diverse set of commodities, interest rates, exchange-traded funds (ETF), and equity index options. From the beginning, we began iteratively investing in our proprietary technology and committing to building our systems from the ground up. Our trading models and software systems are continually re-engineered, optimized, and maintained to stay on top of the industry. This wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated efforts of our technology teams who utilize and perfect our innovative technology solutions. 

High-performance proprietary development is the source of our success and competitive advantage at Belvedere, further fueling our passion for performance. We are a team driven by intellectual curiosity, seeking answers that will change not only how we trade in this technological age, but also the future landscape of the trading industry. We place a high premium on defining, developing, and deploying high-performance trading software using a team-based, holistic development approach. We look for passionate team members that excel and their contribution is critical to our continued success. 

Trading Data Fabric (TDF) builds and manages a data platform that enables Belvedere to capture and stream high-volume, high-quality data and utilize cloud-scale compute for quant research and trading. We manage pipelines that capture real-time market data, trading actions, and complex internal valuation and position data. These stream into real-time trading engines and our data warehouse for historical analysis.  

Our Software Engineers are responsible for system development, pipeline implementation, data warehouse architecture, data quality automation, and operational oversight. They participate in all aspects of our software development lifecycle, from design to testing to deployment, and have both a love of technology and an interest in the financial markets.
