Developments in the crypto space are often accelerated and this is reflected in the tempo of the work at Wintermute. We value people who work hard and are able take the initiative with opportunities. Demonstrating these qualities is the main driver for progression here and so there is a real sense of controlling your own future. Initially, I worked in core trading development but as Wintermute grew, so did my responsibilities. Eighteen months on, my day-to-day now includes activities ranging from OTC coverage and running the P&L on a few exchanges to interviewing and mentoring new joiners.

Wintermute is an unparalleled participant in this still young market, where a group of amazing minds have come together to bring a much needed service.

Having dived deep into the technology behind cryptocurrency since 2014, it became obvious to me that decentralisation would change many sectors of the financial industry across the globe. Wintermute is an unparalleled participant in this still young market, where a group of amazing minds have come together to bring a much needed service necessary to prove that cryptocurrencies are maturing to the level that institutions can begin to trust the technology. The challenges we face in the team are novel and complex, ranging from security considerations, fast-paced technological advancements to low latency execution. There is never a dull day in DeFi!

Software developer - DeFi

Hard work coupled with personal growth and determination of becoming a global leader in this space are the most valuable traits.

Flashback two years back and the crypto space was still in its infancy and I was beginning my career at an early stage start up Wintermute. The rapid developments in crypto ranging from defi to new protocols are reflected and even outpaced by the growth of Wintermute - now a leading algorithmic market maker. Hard work coupled with personal growth and determination of becoming a global leader in this space are the most valuable traits. Initially, I worked on designing the underlying architecture and core trading logic. As we grew, I was responsible for the growth of our P&L on two of the top 5 exchanges globally, recruiting and integrating new team members. Recently, I have pivoted from trading back to software development to help us meet the next set of strategic objectives and further work on my development skills.
