You take pride in your ability to not only manage complex pipelines, processes, and models but build the pipelines from scratch to ensure their efficacy. Your last greenfield project seems like a lifetime ago. Compensation may be acceptable, but your progression has stagnated or your work is undervalued compared to other aspects of the business.

  • Develop ingestion processes, migrate Data Lakes, and build the models capable of curating large amounts of data
  • Take initiative to improve performance & reliability through identifying and solving bottlenecks

The Environment:

  • Your team collaborates with all strategies across the firm providing insights and a statistical backbone that guides ideas, investment strategies, and alpha decisions
  • Heavily invest in their engineers through modern technologies and internal promotion
  • Small and flat-structured teams with high visibility that create a fast track towards career progression


What you’ll need to be considered for this role:

  • Highly capable data engineering skill set and CompSci fundamentals
  • Expertise in building pipelines from scratch, optimizing large dataset processing & Data lake migration
