Here is the other one. The really nice thing about this situation is that there are no VC's breathing down
everyone's necks. If you like to write a lot of code and solve really intense problems, this is a great
opportunity. The last thing is that for this particular position, you would really be a critical part of
the design and development of their strategies and systems. This is going to be a great position for
someone who feels comfortable being an intellectual leader. Lastly, I have seen situations where they
were willing to change course when a better solution was offered. I think these guys from the top on down are
flexible and really do want to hear from the team members.
Hope this all helps,
My name is Charles Weitzer. I do recruiting for machine learning teams worldwide. One of my clients is a
startup quantitative hedge fund located in Northern, California. The founders previous worked
together at one of the most successful quantitative hedge funds in the world in New York City. Now they are
ready to do it again. The team would like to hire an extremely talented design and build software engineer
as soon as possible.. They are rebuilding their current trading strategy and system and also designing a
new strategy. You could work on either or both. The title and level of seniority are very flexible. Their
team has made unpublished discoveries in the field of machine learning and in other areas as well. This is
an opportunity to leverage these discoveries in a real world environment.
Here is their description of the position:
Design and Build Software Engineer
Fast-growing quantitative trading firm seeks an exceptional software engineer. You will design and
build new production trading systems, machine learning infrastructure, data integration pipelines,
and large-scale storage systems.
We seek a candidate with a proven track record of building correct, well-designed software, solving hard
problems, and delivering complex projects on time. You should preferably have experience designing and
implementing fault-tolerant distributed systems. Experience with building large-scale data
infrastructure, stream processing systems, or latency-sensitive programs is a bonus. We are getting
big fast. Willingness to take initiative, and a gritty determination to productize, are essential.
Join a team that includes faculty at premier universities and PhD's from top-tier schools, led by the
founder and CEO of a successful Internet infrastructure startup. You will have a high impact, and you can
expect frequent interaction with the researchers, officers, and founders.
Compensation and benefits are highly competitive.
* Experience developing with C/C++/Python/Go in a Linux environment with a focus on performance,
concurrency, and correctness.
* Experience working in TCP/IP networking, multithreading and server development.
* Experience working with common Internet protocols (IP, TCP/UDP, SSL/TLS, HTTP, SNMP, etc.)
* Experience architecting and designing highly-available critical systems.
* Experience architecting and designing large-scale data management infrastructure.
* Experience with PostgreSQL or similar RDBMS.
* Experience working in large codebases and building modular, manageable code.
* Experience with debugging and performance profiling, including the use of tools such as strace,
valgrind, gdb, tcpdump, etc.
* Experience with build and test automation tools.
* Experience working with well-defined change management processes.
* Has experience hunting down RDBMS performance problems, understands indexing options, can read an
execution/explain plan, has some experience with ORM and optimization at the code layer, etc.
* Experience with messaging queues (such as RabbitMQ and Redis), as well as distributed caching systems.
This group is currently managing a very healthy amount of capital. And their job description above is
really just a starting point in terms of possible responsibilities and seniority. They can be very
flexible for the right person.
If you are interested, let me know the best way to get in touch and we can discuss details.

Assuming you're serious, I think you might need to add a few more details
