Our stack is increasingly complex as our analyses are computationally intensive and need to be done in near real-time. You will work with our engineering team and our CEO and Head of Bus Dev.

PortfolioStrat is a cloud-based trading workflow tool SaaS Platform Portfolio Manager for hedge funds, asset managers, and other sophisticated investors. The platform helps professional investors generate investment ideas through screens and advanced analysis and visualization with statistical analyses, machine learning / data science, and other overlays. We are a team of former hedge fund portfolio managers, investment bank quants and technologists work to connect all parts of the professional investor's workflow in the cloud.
We have a beta product that has been 1.5 years in development and is backed by over 7 years of prototyping, IP, and industry knowledge. We have 10-20 hedge fund clients who have signed up to be early users of the platform and have signed a major broker to use it.
We are looking to disrupt the entire investment workflow of a front office portfolio manager stuck on Bloomberg and Excel spreadsheets. We recently closed our seed round funding and previously raised a small round last year.
Compensation negotiable upon extra experience.
