We’re looking for a uniquely talented software engineer to join our world-class team. PDTers are creative, energetic, friendly, entrepreneurial, and collaborative. If you could walk around our office, you’d see that we’re a focused, intent, and nimble company with none of the attitude and bureaucracy of a stereotypical Wall Street trading firm. Our engineers love to work on challenging and complicated problems, and in return, they have a chance to make a direct impact on our bottom line. For the right talent, there is fantastic growth potential.
PDT’s Platform team works with all other development teams within the company with the goal of moving the company to one platform. The platform consists of services we’ve on-boarded and built tooling around. We, along with other teams, use the platform as our back-end infrastructure. The team consists of strong software engineers who are able to dig deep into issues, submit patches to the OSS products we rely on, and embed into other development teams throughout the company to help get them onto our platform. We power everything at the company from our real-time trading systems to big-data batch processing pipelines.
Develop complex new software systems, extend and integrate the latest open-source and third-party services, containerization and orchestration technologies, both on-premises and in the cloud.
Shape how ‘web-scale’ technologies can be applied in a financial trading organization with varied use-cases and stringent performance and reliability requirements.
Work embedded with application teams to integrate infrastructure into their real use-cases, work hand-in-hand with our Systems Infrastructure team to build a great platform.
Why join us? PDT Partners has a stellar twenty-five-year track record and a reputation for excellence. Our goal is to be the best quantitative investment manager in the world—measured by the quality of our products, not their size. PDT’s very high employee-retention rate speaks for itself. Our people are intellectually extraordinary and our community is close-knit, down-to-earth, and diverse.
