The Opportunity

Lever Data was formed by an experienced management team and is backed by several of the world's largest hedge funds to solve some of the most challenging problems in data analytics and data-driven insights. Because of our strong backers, who are both investors and customers, we are well funded and able to build exciting solutions with full collaboration from our intended end-users-a privileged position to be in. At Lever Data, you will enjoy the best of startup culture but with the stability of an established company, which is uncommon for ordinary startups.

Technically, you will be one of the principals responsible for building and maintaining a new platform by leveraging a wide variety of technologies and services. You will deliver a solution capable of onboarding and processing large volumes of heterogeneous data aimed at providing analytics and insights to aid investment research and operations.

This position offers an attractive salary and a significant upside in terms of career growth and influence. For the right person, this is a "once in a career" opportunity.

The Person

We are seeking a rare kind of individual who can zoom out to the big picture while also being capable of zooming in to implementation details with a focus on code quality and maintainability. You will be one of the key team members responsible for setting standards, culture, mentorship of other team members, and shipping high quality solutions. You will aim to bring clarity and energy to the team and to your work environment.

You have a positive attitude and embody a balance of cautiousness, such as that which serious data engineering requires, and pushing the envelope, a requisite of any startup. You are an excellent team player and aim to bring out the best in those around you.
