Scala job in Boston writing quantitative finance software
2008-12-01 20:56:22 GMT
The company I work for, ClariFI (http://clarifi.com/), is looking to hire developers with a strong background in functional programming to do a mixture of Scala and Java programming. The ideal candidate would be someone who really "gets" FP and who we could turn loose designing and implementing clean, functional code in Scala. You'd also work on extending existing Scala modules and integrating the library code you write with application code written in Java. For more info, check out our official job posting: http://www.clarifi.com/About-ClariFI-Careers.php#SoftwareEngineer
Some background on us: ClariFI is a small company (about 15 developers) that specializes in software for quantitative investment management. Our chief product, ModelStation, is used by portfolio managers for handling all stages of the quant process: building and backtesting of factors, portfolio optimization, simulation of trading strategies, performance and risk attribution, overall data management (including organizing huge amounts of time series data pulled from a diverse set of raw sources), and lots more. We don't expect you to have a background in finance but you should be willing and able to learn a lot once you start.
This position is in our Boston office, so you must live or be willing to relocate here in order to be considered. If you're interested, send an email to myself or my boss, Scott McFarland (smcfarland <at> clarifi.com), along with your resume. Also, feel free to contact either of us if you just have questions about the position.
