Capital Markets Gateway (CMG) is a financial technology firm that is modernizing the equity capital markets (ECM). CMG connects investors and underwriters via a neutral platform that delivers integrated ECM data and analytics, transparency, and workflow efficiencies. Providing a digital system of record for firm-wide deal activity, CMG helps clients make more timely, better-informed decisions. Launched in 2017 by a team of ECM practitioners, the CMG platform is currently relied upon by nearly 100 buy side firms representing $12 trillion in AUM and 15 investment banks.

CMG’s goal is to alleviate pain points resulting from disparate solutions, fragmented data and frenzied communication. CMG’s DataLab product solves for data analytics, while CMG’s XC platform establishes connectivity between buy- and sell-side firms.
The CMG engineering team consists of domain experts who work collaboratively within a culture of cross-domain knowledge sharing. We value engineers who are passionate about modern technologies and best practices. Our engineers are willing to challenge the status-quo and are constantly seeking improvement and efficiency in our code-base and platform. CMG engineers are empowered to explore solutions and bring recommendations to the table. We’re in a period of making impactful engineering decisions. As part of our process, we believe in taking the time for research and prototyping - this is critical in making the right decisions.

Given the experience of our team, we have naturally adopted best practices from local development, through code review and into production rollouts. Besides the standard pull requests, test automation, code coverage tracking, containerization, and one-click deployments we are constantly reviewing these foundational components to develop new best practices.

The team has built on the already highly collaborative nature between our offices and found that we are well configured for a full remote work.
CMG is scaling up our DevOps engineering team and looking for an engineer focused on infrastructure, reliability, and tooling. This team builds and maintains enterprise level cloud infrastructure for cloud-native microservice applications running on Kubernetes clusters. The person who joins our team will be encouraged to influence new solutions that will keep our technology running smoothly and with high availability for our customers.
