Our Mission

Novus serves capital allocators and managers, helping them enrich and manage their data, extract actionable investment insights, and improve stakeholder communication via visualization and automation. We strive to be the center of the institutional investment ecosystem, where the world’s investors gather to manage their portfolios and engage with one another.

Over $120 trillion is invested annually on behalf of pensions, endowments, sovereign funds, private investors, and family offices. Unfortunately, many of these institutions are using outdated and disconnected tools to manage their portfolios. Novus offers comprehensive solutions for multi-asset class portfolios. By providing a single platform that streamlines data processes, quantifies investment skill, uncovers bias, and helps investors plan more accurately, we are helping investors amplify their impact.

Our Values

If the following sounds like you, we look forward to getting to know you —

  • You are looking to join a fast-paced team that will mentor and support you as you take on challenging projects.
  • You understand that deadlines and goals – even if self-imposed – are what help businesses succeed.
  • You appreciate direct, unvarnished feedback – you know it will help you grow.

Also:

  • The thought of deploying code to production several times day excites you. You know it is better to "fail fast" than to never ship at all.
  • You enjoy mastering your craft, but also love learning about technologies and tools outside your core expertise.
  • You don't take yourself too seriously and know the importance of bringing some levity to an otherwise tense situation.

 

What You’ll Do

You’ll join our Product Team as a Front-End Engineer (HTML/JavaScript) developing the core Novus product, Alpha Platform. This role will expose you to our rapidly evolving product suite, with consistent opportunity to make a direct impact on the business. 

Novus is a small firm, so we need our engineers to take ownership of their projects. You’ll do more than merely “code to a wireframe.” From the start, you’ll be helping bring products from concept to production while solving distinct design, UI and UX challenges.

Some responsibilities will include:

  • Become an expert in our front-end stack
  • Learn about our backend stack, coded in Scala, MySQL and AWS technologies.
  • Collaborate across the entire organization, including backend engineers, data operations team, client services and product managers.
  • Develop expertise in a broad array of financial topics.

Critical Skills / Abilities

Our ideal candidate has at least 2 years professional experience building applications in HTML5 and JavaScript and experience with

  • Web frameworks such as Angular or React
  • Web application layout and design using a CSS preprocessor (Sass, Stylus), and a templating language (Pug, Mustache)
  • Continuous Delivery, including integration testing with tools such as Cypress or Selenium

Additional skills that we would love to see but are not required:

  • Hands-on experience with backend technologies, specifically Java, Scala, or SQL
  • Familiarity Node.js and/or Puppeteer
  • Personal interest in capital markets, finance and investing (even if you’ve never traded stock).
