What we do

Hg Exchange (HGX) is a private exchange formed by an alliance of leading financial intermediaries, individually licensed and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

Our technology infrastructure is underpinned by advanced blockchain technology and proven exchange solutions to enable secure and efficient cross-border listing and trading of both digital and non-digital capital market products.

Why we do

The very first stock exchange was founded in the 1900s. It was member-owned and self-regulated. Over time, it evolved to what we are familiar with today — stock exchanges are private entities driven by profit.

As a consortium-led private exchange, we take a bottom-up approach to build the Exchange of the Future. By uniting financial institutions, broker-dealers, corporate finance advisors, and other leading capital markets entities, HGX offers the most comprehensive network for buyers and sellers in the ecosystem.

Our mission is to create an equitable trading platform by bringing operational transparency, fair competition and cost-efficiency to the private capital markets.

How we do

The story behind our name:
Hg is the elemental symbol for Mercury.

Mercury is the sole metallic element that is liquid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure. It is utilised in thermometers for its trustworthiness and reliability – drawing a parallel to the fundamental ethos of the exchange.

Mercury also refers to the Roman deity who was the messenger to the gods – akin to the role of the exchange which bridges the gap between buyers and sellers to facilitate trade.

As a new team member

We are a social and cross-functional team that very much enjoys working together in person whenever possible. As such this role will be largely based in our Singapore office, although we offer a flexible working environment where delivery and outcome are more important than the number of hours. Read on to learn more about the Team Lead role!

Some of your key responsibilities include:
● Leading and mentoring a team of 2-3 engineers to start, with an opportunity to grow significantly beyond that
● Alongside your team, hands-on implementation of the product roadmap
● Contributing to our cloud infrastructure strategy, ensuring we are making the best use of new and existing cloud services in terms of security, efficiency, and scalability
● Working closely with our technology partners, Principals, and CTO to plan the most scalable and adaptable exchange architectures
● Helping the team select the tooling, frameworks, and processes that will help us maximize delivery while minimizing code
● Defining and evolving our data domains, in close collaboration with both our data and product teams
● Establishing secure and robust interfaces with our vendors and partners
● Keeping up to date with the latest in tooling and industry best practice, ensuring that we’re constantly discussing, evaluating and implementing the best
● In collaboration with the CTO and our entire team, help set the practices and mindsets that define our technology culture

As our Software Engineering Team Lead, you’ll bring 5+ years of hands-on software engineering experience, with some exposure to team leadership. More specifically, we hope you’ll bring strong experience with many of the following:
● Service-oriented, API-driven architectures
● Cloud infrastructure and security (any major cloud provider will do)
● Blockchain principles, smart contract development, digital wallets and good knowledge of (or strong interest in) defi applications and NFTs
● Serverless and container-orchestrated architectures
● Mentoring team members, conducting technical interviews and performance management
● Agile methodologies and sprint-based workflows
● A variety of OO and functionally-oriented languages
● Security and performance testing and auditing, both at the code and infrastructure level
● API design and specification (Swagger/OpenAPI, etc.)
● Containerization and image management (Docker, etc.)
● Best practices around robust CI/CD pipelines
● Experience with relational databases (non-relational also an asset)
● Data domain modeling
● Workflow engines, such as Apache Airflow
