Operations Analyst


XTX Markets is an algorithmic trading firm that actively trades tens of thousands of instruments on over eighty venues with a daily volume of almost three hundred billion USD. We partner with counterparties, exchanges, and e-trading venues globally to provide consistent liquidity in the Equity, FX, Fixed Income, Commodity & Options markets, helping market participants throughout the world obtain the best prices in the various assets classes we cover.

We leverage the talent of the people who work here, modern computational techniques and state-of-the-art research infrastructure to analyse large data sets across markets quickly and efficiently, to maximise the effectiveness of our proprietary trading algorithms. The models that drive our trading strategies have evolved considerably over the last 10 years, from econometric methods that gave our company its name, to trees, to neural networks, to modern deep learning architectures. We are actively seeking new methods and ideas.

At XTX Markets technology is our business and we are a diverse organisation which attracts outstanding talent from across all industry backgrounds. We are focused on teamwork and our people collaborate on all aspects of the business, working openly and with respect for each other, our clients and the market. Our culture is non-hierarchical and one where everyone is valued. We strive for excellence in everything we do.


An operations role at XTX will provide exposure across all areas of the business. You will be given the opportunity to take ownership over processes early on. With the guidance of the team, candidates will improve and develop new processes using a range of technical skills such as Go and SQL. Resolving a broad set of daily issues will mean regularly interacting with other teams and external counterparties.

Our ethos is to develop robust, scalable solutions that improve the efficiency of the team and accuracy of our data. This is an opportunity to take part in the growth of a company where decisions make a difference. The impact of operations is far beyond what you usually see within large institutions.

XTX are looking for technically minded candidates with enthusiasm and initiative. The role is an opportunity to contribute to a small team with new ideas and make a real and positive impact to the team itself, as well as the firm.

The team has presence in London, Singapore, New York, and Paris. This role is for London. We work in the office 4 days a week, 1 day from home.
