    You will be a client integration specialist, FIX connectivity developer or client support operative with a genuine interest in financial markets and a natural inherent drive for high quality and excellent client service. You will possess the unique blend of technical skills and business acumen that enables you to solve complex problems effectively across a broad range of client requirements. You will be comfortable interacting with your peers, in major investments banks and hedge funds, to integrate their systems with ours.

    FX is the largest financial market in the world with $5 trillion traded daily. BidFX is a recent fintech start-up with a mission to disrupt the marketplace by leveraging the latest technology to tap new sources of FX liquidity, bring transparency and offer order/trade shaping solutions that facilitate best execution for clients. We are a small but growing firm with big aspirations and are doubling our trade volumes year on year.

    An essential part of our business involves developing reliable and efficient trading connections between our trading systems and those of our clients. These include major investment banks, brokerage firms, dealers, asset managers, fund managers and electronic exchanges.
