job4accu@20Y: which past job was closest2ideal

Q: do I want to deepen and specialize in one single area, rather than diversify? skill: deepen^diversify^stack up provides a context
A: let’s assume answer is yes deepen.

Q: which area?
A: programmatic data analysis in finance … with two entry barriers in math and coding, with reasonable “moneyness” but market depth is poor.
A: financial enterprise app with multi-threading …?
A: high speed market data engine in TCP/multicast?
A: orderbook replication with retransmission?
A: bond math including IRS?
A: option math? Poor market depth

Once we figure out which domain is good enough (very few), then we need a good boss…

So which past job is most likely to offer me that professional growth prospect?

  • 95G — java threading for trade execution
  • Barcap, but market depth is poor for that skill
  • citi?
  • RTS? but I get NO exposure to the raw sockets and I’m not allowed to ask!
