Senior Rust Engineer

New York, NY
Full time
We're reimagining how people enjoy sports.

Today, the sports betting industry predominantly relies upon manual labor to price and trade in-game betting markets. The user experience is less than ideal; it’s often complicated and transactional.

SimpleBet is using modern technology to enable sports betting market creation and trading to become entirely automatic and algorithmic for the first time ever. This creates more betting opportunities, enables more efficient pricing for existing betting activity, and reduces operating expenses via automation.

We are also recreating the sports betting user experience – enabling casual fans to interact with products that are simple, intuitive, and entertaining.

What’s in it for you:
Do you love optimizing code down to the last instruction? Is segfault a bad word in your household? We are looking for Rust engineers to productionize our novel Sports Betting models. In this role, you will be implementing Rust code to deliver the odds of sports betting markets in real-time. You will work closely with our Data Science team to architect our internal machine learning framework and implement algorithms for producing odds in microseconds.

We'll trust you to:

    • Develop features to productionize and support our Sports Betting models
    • Architect and optimize Rust code for raw speed, cache-locality and robustness
    • Evangelize and implement best practices in Software Engineering

You'll need to have

    • Experience in low-level systems programming using Rust, Go, C or C++
    • Strong experience in data structures and algorithms
    • 3+ years of experience shipping software to production
    • A strong desire to tackle hard problems
    • B.S. or B.A. in Computer Science, Math or equivalent experience

We'd love to see:

    • A passion for Open Source, especially in the Rust community
    • Understanding of statistics, machine learning, Data Science
    • Experience with TensorFlow and other Machine Learning frameworks
    • Experience with functional programming languages, especially Elixir and Erlang
    • Experience with Lean Product Development
