  • Able to act and to take decisions under pressure

  • Digital native

  • Understanding of digital assets and blockchain technologies (particularly CEXes and DEXes)

  • Understanding of financial market structure

  • Strong attention to details

  • Basic coding skills (good understanding of SQL and at least basic working knowledge of Python or R) are required for some of the traders openings and we prioritise candidates with these.

  • Good communicator

  • Fluent in English

Past experience trading cryptocurrencies is essential. This doesn’t have to be professional experience - we’re also keen to talk to anyone who trades cryptocurrencies as a hobby.
