Flat structure for now, but growing into a limited hierarchy with mentorship available for junior and mid-level engineers. Unit, regression and integration testing, smoke testing, chaos testing, automated builds and deploys to a test environment at parity with production.
Vertical scaling - in an era where most web applications scale horizontally. All of our orders have to be routed through a single central risk system before any can hit their respective order books. This can be made concurrent, but not parallel.
Build a catch-up protocol for the trading interface: if a single message is missed out of the millions flying by, incorrect prices could display. Detect this automatically and request initial state again when it happens. Log the event for analysis.
Dogs are great!
We will fund employee travel to relevant industry conferences for continued education.
