Forward Deployed Engineer

New York, NY
R&D – Engineering
Addepar has the potential to make a huge swath of private investing more transparent, more efficient, and more ethical.  We’re building a single platform that unifies hundreds of portfolio and market data systems and leveraging that platform to create robust, powerful financial applications. The problems we’re tackling are complex and globally important.

The technical effort involved to build a fast, scalable and reliable platform 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 build and run our own distributing serving and financial calculation framework that allows clients to run complex analysis of massive data sets in real time. We design robust APIs and powerful, versatile user interfaces to empower wealth managers to ask nuanced questions about their clients' holdings.


As a forward deployed engineer, you will bridge the gap between Addepar’s platform and client’s business requirements. You will create custom data pipelines and tight integrations between client systems and Addepar. You will show the customer value quickly and turn learnings into scalable and repeatable long term solutions. Our forward deployed engineering team sits within core data engineering and embeds directly with our customers to create the solutions they require to fully utilize the power of the Addepar platform.
