Senior Full-Stack Machine Learning Engineer

Your position

We are looking for an experienced full-stack machine learning engineer to join our team. As part of the early team you work directly with the founders and have the opportunity to significantly shape our codebase and infrastructure (Python, TensorFlow, Docker, continuous deployment to Google Cloud Platform). At the core of your position is designing, implementing, training and evaluating state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms that accurately model financial markets. Your position also includes designing large-scale data pipelines, improving our stock market trading simulation, implementing innovative portfolio optimization concepts and everything else that pops up along the early days of a startup. 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 required you are eager to quickly learn essential concepts.

What we do

Othoz develops world-class artificial intelligence systems that autonomously perform stock market trading, powering next-generation hedge funds and asset managers. Our underlying deep learning model continually ingests huge amounts of financial market data and learns to identify complex patterns and structure that hint at future market development. The system is self-learning and automatically adapts to time-varying market behaviour. Based on the model’s predictions about the future, our system creates and manages next-generation stock portfolios with strong and consistent risk/return profiles.
