Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
We have a very interesting financial trading project, written in Chipmunk Basic (OSX & Linux) that is running behind & in need of some assistance.

Essential Skills:

* Moderate to advanced Chipmunk Basic (ideally on Mac OSX & Linux - but other platforms should be fine)
* Working with maths & small formulas (nothing to hard, lot of examples provided)
* Must be able to follow instructions & communicate clearly
* Lots of attention to detail required, I.E. writing test routines to verify the logic is operating as expected etc.

Desired Skills (advantageous but not essential, can train if required):

* An understanding of UNIXTIME would be helpful ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time )
* knowledge of financial derivatives, program trading, algorithms etc helpful, but not essential ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorithmic_trading )
* Knowledge of Chipmunk random databases, record structures etc a distinct advantage (Schema similarities to MySQL)
* Working with FIX Market Data & other formats (formats are very well documented) including converting data between formats
* Some UNIX shell scripting & basic UNIX understanding an advantage
* Understanding of data protocols & transport layers an advantage (UDP, TCP, Multicast, SCP etc).

The work is 100% remote.

We're estimating 2-4 weeks work, though this is open to review once you have had a chance to scope the remaining work.
There is a possibility of ongoing work if of interest.
