Job Description

Our client is a leading Hedge Fund company

As an Investment Engineer, your mission is to help understand how markets and economies work and codify this understanding. You will spend your time designing and building the algorithms which are used to help generate market views, translate those views into portfolios, and trade those portfolios. Every piece of investment logic is owned by an Engineer who:
* is an expert in their investment domain and can hold the whole model of the investment system in their heads
* designs systems that express and run our investment logic and evolves with our investment understanding
Our core values:
* Honesty, transparency, directness, personal accountability, driven by doing what's right for the organization
* Holding a very high bar for each other, everything we do, and everything we build
* Autonomy and self-motivation

* Passion and knack for building data models and algorithmic systems that solve complex investment problems
* Deep interest in markets, finance, and investing
* Great analytical mind, strong critical and independent thinking ability
* Desire to work in a highly entrepreneurial and collaborative environment wrestling with both investment and engineering content
* Solid technical background on software engineering, preferably 3~10 years of experiences working in related fields coming from a CS background
* The drive, determination and courage of growing into future leaders of our business
* Though we don't put strong emphasis on past skills and experiences, familiarity with Scala, Python and understanding of functional paradigms will be a helpful plus.
