The Organization

The nation’s biggest equity and options market maker, responsible for one in every five stock trades in America and 40% of the retail equity volume, is investing heavily in technology talent. The company has grown from 400 employees to about 700 employees since January 2017. Roughly a third of their growth is attributed to talent in technology, and half of the 100 or so technologists hired have come from Silicon Valley or other locations far from Wall Street and traditional securities firms.

The Role & Responsibilities

The Research Team is responsible for providing next-generation research capabilities to our quants. As part of this team, your role and scope will be defined by your ambition and abilities, including but not limited to everything from:

- How to scale simulation (e.g., cloud-based job execution and management)
- How to move / store / organize data at petabyte scale
- Workload optimization
- Optimizing workflow across simulation to production
- Cutting-edge big data work
- Finance-specific tasks (e.g., exchange simulation, ...)
- Immediate team size depends on exact responsibilities - e.g., the team building the cloud execution platform is different from those working on workload optimization. We will share more with you as we learn more about you and can ensure it’s relevant to your personal scenario.
