Doing well in our industry involves exploring and researching new concepts frequently, and undertaking numerous experiments - thus we are looking for proactive initiative-takers. Because of the same reason, we expect our employees to be continuous learners who enjoy the process of learning and exploring latest developments in various related domains.
Since doing well involves coordinating across domains (technology, big-data and finance), we are looking for team players who can work collaboratively and effectively with others. In our flat hierarchy, while you might not be a leader in the organizational chart, we look for leadership skills in all our prospective hires.
Because the markets are very dynamic, and thus our response to market events has to be just as dynamic, thus we are looking for adaptability as another key characteristic - an ability to thrive under modifying environments.
And most importantly, we are looking for skilled & achievement oriented people - people who have demonstrated excellence in their academic or professional career, and have significant expertise in the skills that matter in our industry. In addition, often the problem statements are very unique and unlike those that exist in other domains - thus strong problem solving and critical thinking skills are critical.
Welcome to our company's recruitment process! At iRage, we are committed to efficiently and effectively closing open positions within a month's time without compromising on the quality of hire.

Our recruitment process involves several stages, carefully designed to identify the right candidates who align with our values and possess the necessary skills and expertise. Here's a detailed overview of our process:
Shortlisted candidates undergo an Online Stress Test to evaluate their decision-making under pressure. They are also asked to complete a Coding Test to assess technical proficiency and problem-solving abilities.
Candidates who pass the Stress Test and Coding Test proceed to the Technical Rounds. Here, they engage with our technical experts for evaluation of their knowledge, problem-solving skills, and domain expertise. These rounds determine the candidate's fit for their applied role.
High-performing candidates in the Technical Rounds advance to the Final Round, where they meet with key stakeholders, such as team leads or managers, to assess cultural fit and alignment with our values.

My day-to-day work involves working on the FPGA designs being used at iRage, to make optimizations in our trading decisions at the nanosecond level.

I chose a project which I deemed to be a good mix of challenging and independent, so that I would not need to have a long on-boarding period. I was given a general overview of the FPGA design currently used, and a brief overview of the project I will be working on, and I was good to start working in a couple of
