Active Roles
Why join us?
  • We play at the cutting edge of integrating computational models with human judgment, in a way that is unprecedented in the industry.

  • An incredible team: our team consists of an operator who took his previous startup to 100 million in revenue, formerly an Amazon Sales Executive, a 10-year veteran of startups, most recently a Spotify team lead, a former CTO & founder at a Series B automated retail company, previously a Google PM, and a Marine Rhodes Scholar who was the top-rated tech analyst at a 13B hedge fund and was on another team that grossed triple digit returns in the stock market.

  • Our first angel investor is one of the best in the business, having been early in Stripe, Pinterest, and Makerbot and is on the board of Andreesen. Our second angel investor is the head of a $2B VC firm who invested personally rather than with the firm.

Engineering team and processes

We run a highly autonomous AGILE process. We spec out requirements collaboratively, first in depth in Google Docs, but then with updates that are often on the fly. We run code reviews and then push changes onto Github. We have two week sprint plans, and set 3 daily priorities. We let people work where they need to and work intense but flexible hours.

Technical Challenges

We're dealing with everything from dealing with deep machine learning and statistical modeling using SciKit / Tensorflow, to building performant and scalable single page applications using React / GraphQL, to building a simulation stack using Kubernetes and BigQuery, to building a live automated trader using Flask, Python, and External APIs.

There's something for everyone here at FreeMarkets, and we're looking for someone who is capable of working across multiple domains.

Projects you might work on
  • The Freemarkets Web Platform: use your passion for the latest Javascript frameworks to build a next-generation web product that brings a new level of investment expertise to everyone.
