I have been working in a propfirm for about 2 years, managing IT projects as well as working closely with traders for catering their new requests. Recently there is an opportunity to join Fidessa, one of the world's largest trading software vendor used by quite a wide range of ibanks / brokers / hedge funds etc.
My eternal goal is to get into strategic positions in ibank. Not sure whether I should take this opportunity now, or to stay in my current prop trading firm until a direct ibank opportunity pops up. What would be the norm of exit opportunities in firms like fidessa? Please kindly share your thoughts, very much appreciated!
