Here are the details:

The Investment Engine Technology team at engineers' systems to understand the world. These systems synthesize and industrialize our global understanding into a hive mind of macroeconomic knowledge which enables us to educate and collaborate with the world's most influential central banks and policy makers and carefully and strategically manage the world's most important capital. Our technologists are engineering highly available, high performing and highly secure cloud platforms and infrastructure which support and scale our investing operations.

Research Department

The goal of the Research department is to fundamentally understand how the global economy works. Embedded within the Research department is a uniquely talented team that builds the tools that allow our macro economists to conduct their research and understand the world's economies at a level we believe no other firm is capable of.

You will be designing, building and creating new tools coding approximately 80% of your time, leading other engineers' efforts and delivering robust, scalable, highly secure and state-of-the-art solutions. Our demand for AWS has grown and you will be part of a newly built-out AWS engineering team to enhance, govern and manage our firms' usage of the AWS platform.
