The smaller more elite hedge funds  are - Getco LLC, Knight Capital, SAC Capital Advisors, Jump Trading, Wolverine 
Trading, Chicago Trading, Citadel, Sun Trading

A list of larger firms are here - http://www.nasdaqtrader.com/Trader.aspx?id=topliquidity

The core skill sets most look for is core Linux, C/C++, multicast, multithreading, IPC, and low level kernel drivers. 
FPGA and CUDA is also becoming more relevant.

Hello All,

i have been looking for quite some time now a descent coder (c,php)
who has
a descent amount of system admin / netadmin experience. Doesn't
need to be an expert at network engineering but being acclimated in
understanding the basic fundamentals of networking. Understanding
routing concepts, how to diagnose using tcpdump / pcap, understanding
subnetting and how bgp works (not necessarily setting up bgp). I've
job listings on the likes of dice and monster and have not found any
canidates, most of them ASP / Java guys.

If anyone can point me to a site they might recommend for job postings
know of any consulting firms that might provide these services that
be greatly appreciated.

Good Luck guys like these are being scooped up by large financial firms
and hedgefunds and they don't come cheap  ~$250k easy!
