This role provides the opportunity to work directly with the firm founders/partners and help ensure they hit the 50-100% growth they’re projected to hit over the next year. Three additional senior-level resources will be joining the organization over the next few months.
This opportunity doesn’t require you to be an expert in one language/technology over another, but a background in trading firms (especially Quantitative or HFT) or “big banks” is helpful.

- Have scored highly on standardized testing and GPA in an academic environment.
- Have experience migrating from existing languages/technologies to others, even if not leading the project.

- Have attended a top school with degrees in Computer Science/Engineering, Mathematics, or likewise.Examples:Ivy League, CalTech, MIT, Duke, Chicago, etc.
The company hopes to achieve:
- Faster ingestion of more robust data.Currently ingesting daily; would like to be close to real-time.
- Convert systems designed by someone with strong Finance background to one more conducive to overall efficacy.
- Limit data oversight.
- Decision-making regarding what technologies to transition into.
