Job Description

Keyrock was founded in 2017 and has quickly grown from 3 to over 100 people today. As an industry recognized liquidity provider and market maker, Keyrock is a leading European creator of algorithmic trading technologies in the digital asset space. With VC backing including Series B investment from Ripple, a constantly expanding global client base, and revenues growth 13x in 2021, Keyrock is one of Belgium’s fastest-growing fintech companies.

We’re currently active on over 80 exchanges and count numerous marketplaces and asset issuers among our clients, including some of the best-known companies in the digital assets space.

Keyrock's beating heart is its technical team filled with crypto and DeFi natives, software engineers, digital scientists and academics, who themselves are supported by university professors, industry-leading experts and a strong management team. Over the years Keyrock has become a company that is both idealistic and practical.

We are looking for an experienced Rust developer to support the growth of our infrastructure, which is based on an exciting and constantly evolving technology stack. You will be working in collaboration with our engineers, data scientists, and architects to develop new features, integrate new liquidity sources and structure financial systems. As an important member of the algorithm team, your mission would be to develop new features and trading algorithms, integrate thirty party APIs and propose improvements to our current infrastructure. An ideal candidate has experience in developing low-latency trading systems, is passionate about algo trading and crypto and is a low-level system thinker.

Important: It is worth to understand we are not a blockchain company per se and as such, blockchain development experience is not significant nor sought after by us. Our software is blockchain agnostic and it could be deployed on any type of assets, not limited to blockchain-based assets. We do however welcome blockchain engineers, especially those passionate about trading, as it generally indicated passion for the industry which we value.

NB: We are open for exquisite developers, experienced in other languages (C++, Java, Go or similar) and passionate about low-latency, low-level trading systems who have just recently started their journey with Rust and need to master it. We provide training and materials and space to learn. For these profiles we will initially offer slightly decreased package to compensate for our investment in teaching and will increase it to regular level after 3-6 months from joining (guaranteed by contract) when proficiency in Rust and full productivity is reached.
