Lever Data was formed by an experienced management team, with successful prior exits, and backed by a few of the world’s largest hedge funds, to solve some of the most challenging problems in data analytics and data-driven insights. Because of our strong backers, who are both investors and potential customers, we are well-funded and able to build exciting solutions with full collaboration from our intended end users – a privileged position to be in, where you will enjoy the best of the startup life and stability uncommon for ordinary startups.
Technically, you will be one of the principals responsible for architecting and building a new platform by leveraging a wide variety of technologies and services, including cloud providers like AWS. You will deliver a solution capable of processing large volumes of heterogenous data, to provide analytics and insights to aid with research, investment and operations.
This position will offer an attractive salary, a substantial stock grant, and a significant upside in terms of career growth and influence. For the right person, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
We are seeking a rare kind of individual, who can zoom out to the big picture, both from a technical architecture, and from a technical strategy perspective, and zoom in to details of the implementation while fussing over the code quality, hygiene, and maintainability. You will be one of the key team members responsible for setting standards, culture, mentorship of other team members, and shipping high quality solutions. You aim to bring clarity and energy to the team, and to your work environment.
You have a positive attitude and embody a balance of cautiousness, that serious software engineering requires, and pushing the envelope, which a startup needs to do. You are an excellent team player and aim to bring out the best in those around you.
Candidate must be based or willing to relocate to the NYC Tri-State area.
We offer a competitive salary, 401(k) and benefits. You will also receive an equity stake in the company. You will have a flexible work environment with the freedom and resources to do your best work.
