TALOS: Institutional Fabric for the Digital Asset Market

Founded in 2018, Talos provides institutional-grade trading technology for the global digital asset market, powering many of the major players in the crypto ecosystem.

Our mission at Talos is clear: to advance the mass adoption of digital assets by seamlessly connecting institutions to the digital asset ecosystem. We are committed to building the most innovative and trusted platform in the world, supporting the entire trading lifecycle.

At Talos, you'll find an environment that champions kindness and respect, values diverse perspectives, and upholds inclusivity at every turn. We believe that every member of our team adds invaluable insights and abilities that drive Talos forward. In our pursuit of excellence, we foster a culture of trust and integrity, collaboration, and mutual growth. Together, we are ambitiously building something extraordinary. Your unique talents and insights will play a crucial role in our shared success.

We are a tight-knit but decentralized team of highly-experienced engineers and businesspeople. We have a hybrid-friendly work environment, with physical hubs in New York, London, Singapore, Sweden and Cyprus.

About the Role

Talos operates at the intersection of crypto and capital markets. We build high-performance reactive systems and deliver solutions quickly to keep pace with the changing digital assets space. As an engineer at Talos, you’ll work with the team to develop Talos’s backend trading and settlement platform. Our platform is built from scratch to handle the unique challenges of the digital assets market. Responsibilities include deploying and maintaining the infrastructure for our high-performance, low-latency platform.

We look for engineers that can take ownership of the full development lifecycle. The core team is made up of engineers that know building great systems takes time, and we spend the time on non-functional requirements like safety, security and performance. We value strong communication skills and the ability to get things done in a collaborative environment. Experience building trading systems for traditional markets is preferred but not required.

Join us in this unique opportunity to build the company and infrastructure that powers this emerging asset class.

Responsibilities and Duties

  • Design, implement, test and deploy infrastructure for high performance backend systems and services, including market data connectivity, algorithmic execution, trade analytics, and more

  • Improve the scalability, reliability, security, and performance of the Talos infrastructure

  • Work with the product team and our clients to deliver solutions that support the full trade lifecycle

  • Contribute to an open and transparent culture as we grow the team


  • 3+ years of DevOps experience, ideally working with Google Cloud Platform

  • Track record of deploying, maintaining and securing cloud infrastructure.

  • Experience using Terraform to deploy and maintain cloud infrastructure.

  • Experience working with and maintaining large PostgreSQL databases.

  • B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science or related field or experience

  • Experience in financial technology, with crypto and / or traditional financial know-how a strong plus

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • An energetic, creative, and autonomous self-starter

  • London Based


In return for the above you will benefit from a wide range of competitive benefits no matter your location and a warm, welcoming and ambitious company culture. Just to mention a few, we offer monthly wellness credit for all employees to spend on gym memberships, a massage or maybe even a ski pass for the next holiday - up to you, paid lunches in the office, monthly fitness socials across the offices as well as standard evening socials to connect with your colleagues outside of work, and of course, yearly offsites to meet the wider team!
