Software Engineer for Top Hedge Fund

About the Employer

Our client was ranked as one of the world's top hedge funds to work for in 2018. They have over $100 billion in assets under management, and net revenues of over $400 million. They are one of the world's largest hedge funds and the most profitable by some measures. They manage endowment funds for countries. They employ over 2 thousand people and having this company on your resume will likely be an exponential increase in your work history pedigree.

The company is committed to their ideals of metitocracy. It has dedicated diversity professionals reporting directly to the C suite, several community groups with the goal of supporting/building diverse communities, and a senior Diversity Council empowered to drive forward the vision for a more vibrant, inclusive community.

Company Mission

Our client's mission is to bring idea meritocracies to the world, in other words, organizations in which the best ideas win. Humans are naturally and historically poor at decision making, and the costs are high: opportunities squandered, businesses wrecked, people hurt. Why? Human ego, frailty, and bias. The company has set out to systemize a better way for people to work together, to build strong and vibrant communities, and ultimately to achieve world class results. They equip people with the ability to understand one another, thoughtfully disagree, stress test ideas, and compound knowledge through objective decision making.

By collecting streams of real time experimental and observational data from a large and ever-growing number of sources, they construct and fit statistical, machine learning, and optimization models of people and of work. The company attempts to answer questions like: how do we know what people are like? Who is best for a given job? How can we work together more effectively?
