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, gaining over 4000 users during our first year of launch. Our team consists of former data users from firms like Two Sigma, Belvedere, Pico, Flow Traders, and Tower Research.

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

Responsibilities and Timing

We have projects across the stack, from frontend UIs to backend APIs. Your projects will depend on your background and interests. We accept applications on a rolling basis; however, the internship will last from early June until the end of August, usually for a duration of 10 weeks, with the option to extend by a week or two. Interns have the option of working in their own timezone, or in Eastern Standard Time. If you have any further questions, please visit our job application FAQ

Desired Qualifications

  • 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 

While no quant trading experience is required, knowledge of market microstructure or market data is a bonus, as that's what we do. 

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 H-1Bs and other visas.
