Good Luck!

Thank you. I'll google the companies you mentioned. They could make software for stock exchange market, it's very interesting and should be well paid.

Front office system? Cause I haven't seen any C++ developers at the back end system. Perhaps current functionalities in Oracle or SAP doesn't need too many "touch-up".

Well, high risk high return. If the data can't move from the front office system, all I can say is "Brace yourself". Godspeed.
