Website OptionMetrics

We are OptionMetrics, one of the world’s most trusted financial data and research providers in the options markets. We are looking for a few good Software Engineers to join our group. If you are passionate, driven, and eager to learn new technologies…if you love spending weekends with friends and family instead of production support…and the idea of working alongside exceptionally bright and creative developers and quants excites you, we need to talk!

As a Software Engineer, you will have a variety of technologies to work with. Python, Java, C++, Go, JavaScript, we use them all! Our infrastructure is 100% cloud-based, which means you can finally say goodbye to soul-crushing technical debt and hello to cutting-edge tools and tech! You will develop applications accessing large financial data sets. You will be collaborating daily to brainstorm and implement our next generation of data and analytic information products.

Here at OptionMetrics, we emphasize accountability over micromanagement. We invest in our talent with free learning resources like Udemy courses, O’Reilly subscriptions, even pay for conferences and certification exams! We’re small, agile, casual (no suits – shoes optional), and passionate about our mission and the projects we create. As a development team member, you will have true ownership over your projects from beginning to end.

Our Technology Stack:
Languages: Java, Python, C++, JavaScript, Go
Databases: Postgres, MS SQL Server, RDS, Aurora
Frameworks: Spring Boot, Serverless, Vue
Data Analysis: AWS EMR, Spark, Athena

The Software Engineer Will:

  • Have 1 – 4 years of experience – ideally with a mix of Javascript, Python or Java, and SQL in a cloud environment
  • Develop applications accessing large financial data sets
  • Assist with the troubleshooting of production support issues
  • Enjoy the challenge of researching data issues to maintain quality in our large data sets
  • Gain an understanding of the complex math associated with Options

What We Offer:

  • A collaborative environment where everyone’s input makes a difference
  • Paid time off – Vacation, Personal, Sick days, and Holidays
  • 401k plan with matching
  • Full medical and dental insurance coverage
  • The usual snacks and drinks!
