To do data intensive development work for two major systems in this premier hedge fund.   One is the firm's Treasury and Cash Management System.  the other is to do deep tech for the operations team.  Both teams are searching for highly skilled software engineers in Python or Java server side

 

This firm is a software engineering firm where technology is a major contributor to the firm's success.  Since 2001 Software engineers have helped tackle the complex and interesting challenge of discovering value hidden in the world's data. We are pushing the technical envelope to solve these problems, and in the process are helping to redefine investment management and other fields. As the world of data continues to grow exponentially, the issues they address will only increase in difficulty, scale and excitement.  In order to meet these challenges, we've built a data accumulation platform that allows us to ingest over 10 terabytes of data per day, and a custom distributed storage solution to store the over 50 petabytes of information we've accumulated since our inception.  We've also built an entire suite of analysis tools that enable our quantitative researchers to utilize this data to produce predictive models that help us automatically invest each and every day.  This model-driven, technology-fueled approach to investing not only gives us a long-term advantage over old-school investors - it has also created a whole set of technical problems to solve that don't always have an obvious solution.  This gives you the ongoing opportunity to build proprietary solutions and/or bring to bear the best open source options the market. We have created a robust infrastructure that empowers all of our engineers, and you will work within a collaborative work culture that ensures that a great idea can come from anywhere.
