Quantitative Research Technology

Role overview

Build powerful user facing web technology for a quantitative fund.

Technology drives our business โ€” it's our main competitive advantage โ€” and as a result, software engineers play a pivotal role. They tackle the hardest problems through analysis, experimentation, design, and elegant implementation.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced front end web developer to build our investor web portal. Using best of breed technologies in the front end and public cloud, you will build a data-driven solution for the most significant investment objectives that our clients face. This is an ambitious mission, but we are executing on it by focusing on our own strengths and assets and on a scalable platform.

You will be involved in:

  • Front end development in React.js, Amazon Web Services, and other technologies;
  • A high impact role that works directly with business and analysts;
  • Exposure to 'big data' challenges of computation at scale, portfolio management, data analysis and visualization.

Requirements Include:

  • Exceptional coding ability.
  • Experience with multiple languages, especially on the front end: Javascript, React.js or Angular.js, HTML5, CSS3. Java and Python a major plus, as is experience with Amazon Web Services.
  • A strong academic record with a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a scientific discipline.
  • An obsession with building quality software.
  • We are open-minded in our search for critical thinkers who are passionate about technology.
  • While you will work in the data-rich domain of finance, financial experience is not a requirement.

New York is the most populous city in the US with more than 8 million inhabitants. A lot of immigrants from over 180 countries live in the City. Travelers are usually attracted to its cosmopolitanism and energy. New York consists of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island. New York is also well-known for its cultural heritage Empire State Building, Central Park and Statue of Liberty. The City is a center for fashion, media, culture, research and a booming tech scene.

The tech scene in New York has changed a lot in recent years. A lot of the initial excitement has worn off and settled into a stable trend of successful businesses. In both 2014 and 2015, a New York City tech company went public with a valuation of over $1 billion. It is now #2 startup ecosystem in the world, with startups raising $11.5 billion in venture capital in 2017. NYC is also the HQ of choice for Spotify, Consensys and WeWork.

Two Sigma

    More than 1,000 people who believe the scientific method is the best way to approach investing. Ideas backed up with information. And improved by iteration. Thatโ€™s Two Sigma. Weโ€™re not your typical investment manager. We follow principles of technology and innovation as much as principles of investment management. Fields like machine learning and distributed computing guide us. Since 2001, weโ€™ve searched for ways that these kinds of technologies can make us better at what we do. We never stop researching and developing. In the process, we work to help real people. Through our investors, we support the retirements of millions around the world. And we help fund breakthrough research, education and a wide range of charities and foundations.
