Role Description

OptionMetrics is seeking a Software Development Team Lead to join our NYC office to mentor and provide direction to a team of software engineers while remaining hands-on with coding. You'll be working alongside exceptionally creative and intelligent developers and quants, collaborating daily to brainstorm and implement our next generation of data and analytic information products. You'll also use your development expertise to architect scalable designs for applications accessing large financial data sets. We're small, agile, casual (no suits – shoes optional), and passionate about our mission and the projects we create. Since we are self-funded and profitable (no VC's!), we can afford to take the long view, emphasizing quality over expediency in all we do.

As a member of our development team, you will have true ownership over your projects from beginning to end, with an emphasis on accountability over micromanagement.


Our Technology Stack:

  • Languages: Java, Python, C#, C++
  • Databases: Postgres, SQLite, MS SQL Server, AWS Redshift
  • Frameworks: Spring Boot, Angular
  • Data Analysis: AWS EMR/Hive, Spark, Athena

The Software Development Team Lead Will:

  • Have at least 6 years of experience in software engineering with demonstrated experience leading and mentoring a team of developers
  • Architect scalable designs for applications accessing large financial data sets. Develop and unit test against that architecture.
  • Mentor and direct software engineers
  • Participate in code reviews and assist with the troubleshooting of production support issues
  • Enjoy the challenge of researching data issues to maintain quality in our large data sets
  • Gain an understanding of the complex math associated with options
