Here in our San Francisco office we've identified an opportunity to reach a new client base by building a brand new product that opens our data, core products and visualizations to data scientists, machine learning researchers, and quantitative modelers.


We're building a financial development platform and are looking for people to help build out visualizations and rich features on top of Jupyter Notebooks.

  •  Provide a search infrastructure for rich tools to make it easier for our clients to write code and analysis

  •  2+ years building search infrastructure (Solr, Lucene, ElasticSearch, etc.)
  •  2+ years developing Python, C or C++
