About AQR Capital Management

AQR is a global investment firm built at the intersection of financial theory and practical application. We strive to deliver concrete, long-term results by looking past market noise to identify and isolate the factors that matter most, and by developing ideas that stand up to rigorous testing. By putting theory into practice, we have become a leader in alternative strategies and an innovator in traditional portfolio management since 1998.

At AQR, our employees share a common spirit of academic excellence, intellectual honesty and an unwavering commitment to seeking the truth. We're determined to know what makes financial markets tick - and we'll ask every question and challenge every assumption. We recognize and respect the power of collaboration, and we believe transparency and openness to new ideas leads to innovation.

The Team

The role is within the middle office engineering team, but due to the ubiquity of the data and systems we support, you will interact with teams all over the firm, such as research, portfolio implementation, trading, operations, and other engineering teams. Our teams are small, motivated, and highly productive. Collaborating side-by-side with researchers, portfolio analysts and traders, you will become intimately familiar with the investment philosophy which drives AQR.

Your Role

As a software engineer you will participate in building and maintaining data pipelines, APIs, and web applications used across the firm to satisfy the needs of one of the largest quantitative investment firms in the world. Many projects will be part of larger firm initiatives that directly drive revenue growth or protection as well as increasing scale and reliability of existing systems. AQR is embarking on an aggressive effort to move systems to a cloud-native architecture and you will be part of building and designing scalable solutions on AWS for one of the world's largest quantitative investment firms.

What You'll Bring

4-8 Years of relevant work experience
Bachelors/Masters/PhD in Computer Science, Engineering, or related discipline
Outstanding coding, debugging, and analytical skills
Fluency in at least one of Java, C#, or Python
An interest in quantitative finance (no finance / trading experience required)
Familiarity with one of the large cloud providers is a plus but not required
Experience with Python / NumPy / pandas or similar quantitative stack is a plus
Full SDLC life cycle, full-stack application development expertise (CI/CD, testing, UI, Services)

Who You Are
  • Mature, thoughtful, and a natural fit for a collaborative, team-oriented culture
    • Hard-working and eager to learn in a fast-paced, innovative environment
    • Committed to intellectual integrity, transparency, and openness
    • Motivated by the transformational effects of technology-at-scale
