What is the STP Program?
The STP Development Program is Spotâs main source for new software
development talent. The program provides the fundamental background and
skills required to be a successful developer at Spot. It is a 6-month
program that combines classroom education and hands-on training where
you will learn about options trading, and rotate through each of our
development teams. You will be matched with a mentor to help guide you
along the way. Upon successful completion of the program you will be
fully integrated into one of our development teams as an Associate
Developer. The learning experience does not end there; rather it
continues everyday at Spot.


What does a developer do at Spot?
As a software developer, you will be solving complex and interesting
problems. For Spot to make real-time trading decisions a lot of
computational power is required so that we can quickly process large
amounts of data â our developers write systems to capitalize on that
power.  You will be involved in all areas of our business activities,
and work directly with traders and other end-users.  From building high-
performance front-end trading tools using C#, to building next
generation algorithmic trading systems in C++ and researching cutting
edge technologies, you will be constantly challenged.


Why should you join us?
At Spot, you will get to work with the newest and best technologies.
The software you write touches upon just about every area of Computer
Science, including data storage, information retrieval, algorithm
optimization, artificial intelligence, natural language processing,
distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, user
interface design, etc.  Our Agile methodology allows us to achieve short
release cycles, ensuring that software you develop will be deployed
quickly to the business and can have an immediate impact on the bottom
line.

What is it like to work at Spot?
It is extremely demanding, and we only seek people who thrive in dynamic
situations with new and different challenges each day.  To meet these
challenges, you will be working closely with and learning from expert
developers.  Our culture revolves around small teams identifying and
solving problems and implementing new technology, new models, and new
trades every single day.
At Spot, you will discover your true potential and form lasting
friendships along the way.


What skills/background do you need?
We are looking for Computer Science and Engineering students who show
strong problem solving skills, and have the passion to create innovative
solutions.  You should have a solid understanding of computer science
principles and theory and be comfortable working with object-oriented
programming.  You will need to have a proven ability to design and
develop performance-sensitive applications in a Windows or Linux
environment using C++, C#, or Java; experience with multi-threading is
an advantage.
