Positionen

Senior Software Engineer (m/w/d)

We are looking for a top-tier senior software engineer to join our team on a permanent position in Berlin / Germany.

Details Details

Your position

As part of the early team you work directly with the founders and have the opportunity to significantly shape our codebase and infrastructure. We heavily rely on technologies such as Python, Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform and a continuous deployment pipeline to Google Cloud Platform. You will continuously improve, operate and own our Python-based software stack that powers our Machine Learning based trading platform.
Our platform is composed of a range of modern backend services and libraries that we develop in-house such as the Othoz Data Platform that continually ingests, validates, standardizes and stores financial market data from leading providers; the Othoz Research Platform that allows us to manage, evaluate and store Machine Learning models; as well as libraries such as our in-house trading simulation and risk analysis module.
You will take ownership for continuous development of those services and libraries; designing and exposing the underlying functionality via clean, maintainable and efficient RESTful APIs as well as reliably running the system in production.
Like every other team member, you enjoy taking full responsibility for transforming ideas into a rock-solid, well-engineered production system. We expect that you share our passion for high quality, elegant software architecture as well as well-tested, reliable and maintainable software.
Although neither a background in finance nor Machine Learning is required you are eager to quickly learn essential concepts.

As part of the early team you work directly with the founders and have the opportunity to significantly shape our frontend’s codebase and infrastructure.
Besides building an elegant user-interface a key part of your role will be building interactive visualizations of financial data as well as interfaces and dynamic visualizations for analysing the Machine Learning models that drive our quantitative strategies.
Like every other team member you enjoy taking full responsibility for transforming ideas into a rock-solid, well-engineered production system.
Although a background in finance is not strictly required you are eager to quickly learn essential concepts.

Technology Stack

You are responsible to design, implement and maintain the fronted from scratch using state-of-the-art best practices, tools and libraries (e.g. React, Redux, Webpack, …).
Your application will consume our existing REST-based APIs. Together with the backend team you will help improve the design of the existing APIs and define the design of new APIs.
