OptionMetrics is seeking a Software Development Team Lead to join our NYC office to mentor and provide direction to a team of software engineers while remaining hands-on with coding. You'll be working alongside exceptionally creative and intelligent developers and quants, collaborating daily to brainstorm and implement our next generation of data and analytic information products. We're small, agile, casual (no suits – shoes optional), and passionate about our mission and the projects we create. Since we are self-funded and profitable (no VCs!), we can afford to take the long view, emphasizing quality over expediency in all we do. As a member of our development team, you will have true ownership over your projects from beginning to end, with an emphasis on accountability over micromanagement.

    • Languages: Java, Python, C#, C++
    • Databases: Postgres, SQLite, MS SQL Server, AWS Redshift
    • Frameworks: Spring Boot, Angular
    • Data Analysis: AWS EMR/Hive, Spark, Athena

The Software Development Team Lead Will:

    • Have at least 6 years of experience in software engineering, ideally with Java and some Python
    • Have 1 - 2 years of experience mentoring and providing direction to junior developers
    • Develop applications accessing large financial data sets
    • Participate in code reviews and assist with the troubleshooting of production support issues
    • Enjoy the challenge of researching data issues to maintain quality in our large data sets
    • Gain an understanding of the complex math associated with options

What We Offer:

    • A collaborative environment where everyone's input makes a difference
    • Paid time off: Vacation, Personal, Sick days, and Holidays
    • Pre-tax commuter benefits (NJT, MTA, etc.) and 401k plan offered
    • Full medical and dental insurance coverage
    • A bright, open office in Midtown Manhattan near Columbus Circle and steps from Central Park with a great view of Times Square
    • The usual drinks and snacks (and we're still small enough to celebrate everyone's birthday with cake!)
