If you’re curious about careers in Fintech, Flow Traders is hiring early career professionals (1 to 3 years of professional work experience) with a Bachelors in Comp Sci/Engineering to join their team as Trading DevOps Engineers. 

Candidates will have to compete a coding challenge via Hackerrank during the application process, and will want to highlight knowledge of Unix/Linux and Windows OS, Python and Bash, Kafka, Kubernetes, and HDFS in cover letters but also when speaking to the hiring manager because in-person comms skills are essential to life on the trading desk.

You’ll want to have at least a high school degree or relevant work experience in DevOps, so make sure when someone asks you about using tools like JENKINS, GIT, BitBucket, Repositories, Chef, or Ansible, you’re ready to pay them with the correct response.

In The News

GitHub lawyering up?

GitHub’s new automatic coding tool, Copilot, could be flying through uncharted territories, as The Verge reports a copyright claim could be brewing should someone find training machine learning models on publicly available data isn’t “fair use.”

Considering a career in data science? Here’s what the numbers say.

If an employer’s use of phrases like ‘data literacy’, ‘algorithm’, and ‘big data’ is steering you off the data scientist career path, you’re not alone. According to a survey conducted in the United Kingdom, less than half (49%) of 16-21-year-olds consider data science as a career option despite having many of the skills necessary to thrive in the role.
