Global Investment Manager #007
Responsibilities: Platform teams are small flat groups of experts that help research, implementation, and software engineering teams take their ideas from inception to production. There are many areas of focus that vary by team, but they all share common responsibilities and patterns of work:
Design, implement, and deliver scalable and performant systems. Projects typically involve equal parts engineering and operations, for success in our fast-moving environment. You will be expected to do both for projects small and large, working with a mix of open-source and proprietary tools.
Implementing automation. We will always choose to work smart over working hard. You will be responsible for conception and implementation of new automation from CI/CD pipelines to production metrics to other automation for the platform infrastructure that your team owns.
Obsessive User Focus. All members of platform teams collaborate closely with peer engineers and/or researchers to build high-quality, efficient, and reliable systems. This includes adapting to change, and at times diving into new domains to deeply understand stakeholder needs.
Capacity management and benchmark optimization. Our demand for scale and performance is constant and involves challenging optimization problems for workloads critical to research and trading.
Running our platform systems day-to-day. Our platforms are mission critical for the firm’s success and are very stable, and we want to keep it that way. Everybody on the team contributes to the support of our platforms, which we strive to make light through automation and quality work.
