Job Description:

What We Do:

The Surveillance Analytics Group (SAG) within Global Compliance is an engineering team of more than fifty scientists and engineers responsible for building surveillances that help mitigate the regulatory and reputational risks for many Divisions of the firm. Examples of such surveillances include detection of insider trading, market manipulation (e.g., spoofing), and models for anti-money laundering (e.g., unusual movement of funds between accounts). In concrete engineering terms, a “surveillance” is a software product that ingests and transforms massive amounts of data (e.g., billions of market data points, millions of emails), applies some sort of artificial intelligence on this data to find outliers, and presents them to the compliance officers in a user-friendly UI. To enable such domain-specific surveillances, among other general-purpose big-data systems, our engineers are responsible for developing:

  • “Neon”, the firm’s most scalable search engine (billions of documents).
  • “Pythia”, the firm’s largest knowledge graph (millions of vertices / billions of edges).


As a software engineer / big data engineer in our team, you will be responsible for designing, implementing, testing, deploying - in production environments - and maintaining software systems across the full-stack of the surveillance products and the general-purpose big-data systems. (Our software stack is based on Hadoop / Hbase / Java / Javascript). This, for example, includes building data pipelines to ingest data in our Hadoop clusters, performing data cleaning, data manipulation and analysis, implementing artificial intelligence algorithms, and visualizing outliers in user-friendly UIs.  


  • An advanced degree in Computer Science or a similar field of study
  • Expertise in Java, C++, Scala, or a similar programming language
  • Experience in at least one of the following: distributed computation, building large-scale systems, data mining, information retrieval, natural language processing, and UI design

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply by submitting their resume as an MS word document including a cover letter with a summary of relevant qualifications, highlighting clearly any special or relevant experience.

Please Note: All inquiries will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. Your resume will not be submitted to any client company without your prior knowledge and consent.
