Addepar is making 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.

The organization you'll be joining at Addepar is phenomenal. Our engineering team includes senior engineers and leads who have worked at companies like Google, LinkedIn, Two Sigma, and DE Shaw. We're deliberately building a group that is low-ego, high-energy, fun to collaborate with, and has a focus on getting shit done. If you’re interested in that, we’re excited to meet you.
