Databento is seeking a Software Engineer Intern to join our team and help us democratize the market data industry. Our team is like a close-knit family, and we value camaraderie, teamwork, open communication, and work-life balance. 

No financial experience is required. We genuinely nurture each individual to become an integral part of society, no matter where you go in the future. After the internship, you'll have the option to work part-time throughout the year until graduation. We've hired interns from as early as sophomore year, who are now a core part of our team. This internship is 100% remote and location-agnostic, so you're welcome to live where ever you want - we can pay you in your local currency, and we sponsor H1Bs and other visas. 

We accept applications on a rolling basis and are flexible on timing. Some internships last for the summer, while others last throughout the semester. 

Responsibilities: We have projects across the stack, from frontend UIs to backend APIs. Your projects will depend on your background and interests. 

What we look for:

  • Experience with C++ or Python, ideally outside of the classroom (e.g. personal projects, internships, and co-ops) 
  • University level coursework in computer science (e.g. operating systems, computer architecture, and algorithms)
  • Knowledge of software design patterns and best practices
  • Strong written and verbal communications skills
  • A desire to work at a fast-growing fintech startup 

--- About Databento ---

The financial industry is growing at a record pace, but our data providers are still stuck in the past — with cumbersome onboarding processes, complicated APIs, slow infrastructure, and expensive licensing costs.

Databento is the next-generation market data provider — with the radical idea that you should only pay for the data that you use. We power the world's largest finance and fintech institutions and lower the barrier of entry for small startups.

Since starting in 2019, we've raised over $27.8M in funding and have over 2,000 companies signed up pre-launch. Our team consists of former data users from firms like Two Sigma, Belvedere, Pico, Bloomberg, Pinterest, and Google.

We offer health, dental, disability, and life insurance benefits, as well as 401(k) matching and visa sponsorships. We accommodate 100% remote work, with teammates living around the globe and paid in their local currency.

Our recruiting data suggests that underrepresented applicants often downplay their skills. Even if your experience doesn’t exactly match the qualifications listed, we still want to hear from you. Please apply!
