Who We Are

Addepar’s mission is to bring data, technology and people together to help investors make more informed and timely investment decisions. Our wealth management platform is transforming the fintech industry by providing data aggregation, analytics and reporting for even the most complex investment portfolios. Here, your voice matters. We believe that portfolio, market and client insights can make a significant and sustainable impact, one person and one community at a time. Working at the intersection of groundbreaking technology and limitless financial services industry growth, we are optimizing how capital is put to work.

For more than a decade, Addepar has revolutionised how investment managers analyse and report investor portfolio data. We combine state-of-the-art infrastructure with flexible data analysis and customisable reporting capabilities, so our clients deliver tailored, meaningful interactions to investors. Over 600 firms ranging from family offices to financial advisers to global banks choose Addepar, and that number will continue to grow in 2021. 

As part of our continued growth, we’re establishing a presence in Edinburgh. We’re looking for a Software Engineer to join and help establish our Edinburgh Data Feeds team.

 

Data feeds are part of the broader Operating Platform at Addepar. The platform has responsibility for all data acquisition, storage, conversion, cleansing, disambiguation, modeling, tooling, infrastructure, and provisioning of portfolio, market, account, and reference data. The platform provides a “data fabric” on which the Addepar-as-a-multi-product strategy can be executed. The operating platform is the single source of truth for data within Addepar and includes a centralized and self-describing repository (aka Data Lake), a set of API-driven data services, an integration pipeline, analytics infrastructure, warehousing solutions, and operating tools.

 

Addepar’s core business relies on us being able to quickly and correctly ingest data from a variety of sources, including 3rd party data providers, custodial banks, data APIs, and even direct user input.  As the software engineering manager for this team, you will lead the development of new feeds and maintenance of existing feeds globally in order to dramatically increase the throughput of data ingestion for Addepar. You’ll be building components within the data pipeline that automate the cleansing and transformation steps. As you gain more experience, you’ll contribute to increasingly challenging engineering projects within our broader operating platform. This is a crucial, highly visible role within the company. Your team is a big component of growing and serving Addepar’s client base with minimal manual effort required from our clients or from our internal data operations team.



Responsibilities:

  • Build pipelines that support the ingestion, analysis, and enrichment of financial data and improve the existing pipeline to increase the throughput and accuracy of data
  • Develop and maintain effective process controls and accurate metrics to ensure quality standards and organisational expectations are met
  • Partner with members of Product and Engineering to design, test, and implement new processes and tooling features that improve data quality as well as increase operational efficiency
  • Identify areas of automation opportunities and implement improvements
  • Understand data models and schemas, and work with other engineering staff to recommend extensions and changes

 

Requirements:

  • A computer science degree or equivalent experience
  • Experience with object-oriented programming (we use Java)
  • Knowledge of SQL or relational database concepts
  • Understanding of data structures and algorithms
  • Interest in data modeling, visualization, and ETL pipelines
  • Knowledge of financial concepts (e.g., stocks, bonds, etc.) is encouraged but not necessary
  • Passion for the finance and technology space and solving previously intractable problems at the heart of investment management
  • Experience with European financial reporting is a plus
