Xanadu is hiring! We have moved our technology department to Barcelona in 2015, and this is where most recruitment is taking place. We are looking for 2-5 strong C++ developers to begin in our Barcelona office immediately (see below), but we also have a few other roles starting further down the line. There is a certain amount of flexibility in this, and if you feel like any of those opportunities are a great fit, please do apply already. We also accept applications for general consideration outside of the job profiles listed below. All applications please to careers@xanadutrading.com.


Our recruitment process varies according to position and experience level of the candidate, however, in general, kicking it off is as easy as could be. A short email, ideally with CV attached, with or without cover letter, will do. We just need to be able to see a potential for a good match in order to proceed. From there it will typically involve a telephone interview, an at-home questionnaire and then an on-site or video interview. Then it varies a bit depending on position, but typically it may involve any of the following: a few written tests, some group exercises, some coding exercises and some more on-site interviewing.


Our full time developers and experienced traders form the backbone of our company - they are the shoulders the company stands on. They provide the experience, knowledge and technical leadership that Xanadu rests upon. They are responsible for making Xanadu succeed in our ambitious mission in a highly competitive industry. And we need more!

This is a very exciting time to join us right at the beginning of our time in Barcelona - as successful applicant you would have a lot of influence on shaping the company and helping it realize its vision. You would assume a lot of responsibility very quickly, have a very steep learning curve and with experience the potential to take on a leadership role straight away.


Please find below our current job offerings in technology.


Our trading department is located in and hiring for London, however, most new hires this year would spend a few months to a year in our Barcelona office working with our technology department to get up and running and also to co-operate with our head of trading, who is currently overseeing development efforts in Barcelona.
