(Last Updated On: June 29, 2023)

I am reaching out to you today because I believe in empowering individuals like yourself with the knowledge to give you a competitive edge in the high-frequency trading (HFT) job market. In this fast-paced industry, staying updated with the latest tools and technologies is crucial, and today I want to shed some light on an often overlooked aspect: the C++ compiler version.

As you may know, C++ is the programming language of choice for many HFT firms due to its speed, efficiency, and low-level control. However, not all C++ compilers are created equal. The compiler version you use can significantly impact your code’s performance, execution speed, and even the availability of certain features. Being aware of the specific C++ compiler version potential employers require can give you a distinct advantage during the interview process.

Imagine this scenario: you’re sitting in an interview for your dream HFT job, and the interviewer asks you about your experience with C++. You confidently mention your proficiency in the language, but what if they follow up with a question like, “Which version of the C++ compiler have you been using?” A well-informed response to this question demonstrates your commitment to staying up-to-date with industry standards and your ability to optimize code for high-speed trading environments.

To help you navigate this crucial aspect, I have prepared an informative video that dives deep into knowing your C++ compiler version when seeking HFT job opportunities. In this video, I discuss the significance of different compiler versions and their impact on performance and provide practical tips for identifying and working with the correct version for your desired role.
