We are seeking an experienced and high energy Data Analyst Manager to lead a highly motivated and innovative team. As part of the Data Engineering department, your efforts will be critical to the success of the global trading business.
The company has built a data accumulation platform that allows them to ingest over 10 terabytes of data per day and a custom distributed storage solution to store the over 50 petabytes of information accumulated since their inception. They have also built an entire suite of analysis tools that enables quantitative researchers to utilize this data to produce predictive models that help automatically invest each and every day. This model-driven, technology-fueled approach to investing not only gives them a long-term advantage over old-school investors, it has also created a whole set of technical problems to solve that don’t always have an obvious solution.
