Exabel was founded in Oslo in 2016 based on the belief that the financial system will best serve society with fair, open and efficient markets. Exabel delivers an analytics platform for any investment professional who wants to benefit from alternative data and modern data science tools in their investment process. It fulfills a growing need in financial markets: while use of data – including fundamental, market, proprietary and alternative data – is critical for investment managers, modeling such data in house has become an excessive use of time and resources for all but the very largest investment firms.
Reporting to the Frontend Team Lead, the Senior Frontend Developer will join our Frontend Team based in Oslo, Norway. For this role we accept remote positions, but some travel to our headquarters in Oslo will be required, as well as communicating with your European based colleagues.
