About Addepar

Addepar is a leading provider of technology for the wealth management industry. The company’s performance reporting and analytics platform aggregates portfolio, market, and client data all in one place.

Job Description

Addepar is building a single platform unifying hundreds of portfolio and market data systems and leveraging that platform to create robust, powerful financial applications.

The technical effort involved is massive. Addepar engineering builds portfolio data ingestion systems that process tens of millions of transactions across millions of accounts every day, and pricing and reference data systems that provide coverage for over a trillion dollars in assets. We have built our own distributed serving and financial calculation framework that allows clients to run complex analysis of massive data sets in real time. We provide robust APIs and powerful, versatile user interfaces to empower wealth managers to ask nuanced questions about their clients' holdings.

The group you’ll be joining includes senior engineers and leads who have worked at companies like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Two Sigma, and other top software firms and quantitative hedge funds. If you've designed complex scalable systems, built powerful and intuitive user interfaces, or worked with great teams on hard problems in financial data, come join us.

Team Description

Addepar has over a decade of deep experience in data aggregation for financial services. The Addepar Content Aggregation Layer (ACAL) project aims to create a unified platform for processing investment portfolio data at breadth and scale. As a member of the ACAL team you will join us at the early stage of our journey, from problem formation to delivery of the next generation data foundation Addepar's products will be built upon. Areas you will be exposed to range from distributed system design to capturing business problems in elegant, lasting data models.

Our primary languages in use today are Java and Python. Above any specific technology we value eagerness to learn, comfort in iterating on ideas and consuming feedback and pragmatism that appropriately weighs proving out an idea and eliminating risks against perfection. ACAL is a cross disciplinary effort and as part of the team you'll wear many hats. If you're excited about joining an entrepreneurial internal startup within a world class wealth technology provider, we're excited to talk to you about Addepar and ACAL.

What We're Looking For

  • Education - one of:
    • B.S. or higher in Computer Science or similar technical field.
    • B.S. or higher in Economics, Statistics, Financial Engineering or similar with significant programming experience.
    • 6+ years experience as a professional software developer.
    • Exposure to industry practices in financial services is a plus.
    • Experience with distributed data processing and/or OLAP databases is a plus.
    • Excitement about building something foundational for the financial services industry is a must.
