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 fulfils 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.
This is a position to expand the Python core team within Engineering at Exabel. The Python core team is responsible for developing services and jobs that perform backtesting, transformations, prediction modelling etc. on time series using state of the art algorithms and machine learning, and expose services to our front-end application. Our services are managed by Google Kubernetes Engine. Scalability and high quality is key to everything in the Exabel platform, as well as short turnaround using CI/CD.
The Engineering team is a DevOps team using agile methodologies. Be prepared for your part on support duty as well, since we all share that responsibility.
We are a young company, establishing a challenging, respectful and stimulating culture across a global team; We succeed when we all succeed.
We are a diverse team of finance and technology professionals with a range of backgrounds stretching from deep buyside experience to mathematicians, software engineers, designers and entrepreneurs. The team has experience from Google, Citadel, Point 72, Blackrock, Goldman Sachs, WorldQuant, Bloomberg, Neudata, Factset – to mention a few. We are not strangers to the challenges of building high-quality software.
We are building tomorrow’s technology, and we encourage the team to visit and/or speak at conferences within their domain.
We are happy for team members travel to relevant conferences, and we will also reimburse you for the expenses.
In addition to a competitive pay, we offer stock incentives.
With the massive potential in the software that we are building, there is also a significant financial upside.
All team members will get a chance to take part in that upside.
We sit in comfortable offices in downtown Oslo, London, and New York, within walking distance of everything you need, including major transport hubs.
We aim to keep the process smooth and uncomplicated. Once we have reviewed your application we will be setting interviews with your team leader and if proceeding a followup interview with team members.
We like for everyone to participate in a code test or a business case presentation. It gives us a better glimpse at your skills and strengths.
Your workstation will have been ordered ahead of time (by your specs, of course), so you can be up and running by day one.
You’ll get to know the team and what people are working on by having a one‐on‐one coffee (or a tea, or juice, or your beverage of choice) with everybody on the team.
You will be introduced to “the julekalender”, which outlines the company’s goals for the next few years (and equally importantly, what happens when each goal is reached).
Pick your first challenge, and contribute some code.
