Looking for exceptionally bright software engineers from any experience level, ideally from a Java background with strong interest/expertise in distributed systems, machine learning and big data (Spark, Hadoop, Kafka, Docker).

You'll combine state of the art technologies with leading edge-algorithms to understand and effectively tackle hard problems that will ultimately have profound impacts on client investments. You enjoy statistics and maths and you're intrigued also by topics such as time series analysis, large scale data processing and artificial intelligence.

Skills and Experience Required:

  • Bachelors or higher in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related discipline at a top university
  • Experience with Java, C or other OO language
  • An obsession with building quality software
  • Critical thinkers who are passionate about technology
