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, TensorFlow, Kubernetes, Docker and a continuous deployment pipeline to Google Cloud Platform. You will continuously improve, own and operate 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 Python 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.
