I’ve dedicated the past seven years of my career to recruiting, representing and placing Chicago's top technology professionals. I’ve spent a bulk of my time and effort partnering, representing and sourcing professionals for several of Chicago's top Proprietary Trading firms. Successfully completing a blend of independent project based consulting engagements and permanent hires for technology based needs.
And so, people have asked, many people at that... What are you - You're like a Technology Recruiter for Wall Street? And to that, I say…
"An investment guy? No... I mean, I'm willing to be painted with that brush. Yes, that's my day job... Do we have time? We got time, don't we? I want to show you what I'm really interested in."
My industry knowledge and professional network continue to expand in the areas of SQL Server Database development and administration, UNIX/Linux/*nix Administration, C++/VC++/C#.NET development, CCIE Network Engineers and Architects and Quality Assurance Engineers.
I've gained a strong understanding of the US Securities industry and more importantly, the underlying bleeding edge technology that drives it. Think fast paced, high-availability & real-time systems that serve as the “underlying” asset(s) for proprietary trading and wealth management companies. In a sense, (and I say this with all due respect to the Quantitative, Electronic and Floor based traders), my clients are technology firms, that also happen to trade.
September of 2009 marked a turning point; of what looks to be the beginning, of a long (and long awaited) recovery process for several of our clients that reside outside the realm of proprietary trading. Once again, we've begun listing and marketing opportunity with longstanding clients of old within the Professional Services, Manufacturing and SaaS verticals to name a few.
If you're interested in keeping abreast of opportunity that might be stronger than your current engagement, we should talk.
