AIQ Investments - Park City, UT

QA Engineer/Sys Admin/Jr. Developer

We are looking for a candidate with strong Linux system administration skills and some application development experience including automated testing and dynamic scripting languages to fill a Testing & Systems Administration position at our financial start-up. The successful candidate would become an integral part of a small, fast-paced team and would be expected to wear multiple hats, including everything from working on hardware maintenance of our super computer to helping fill a QA vacancy on the primary development team. We want someone who enjoys working hard and learning new things, but also does well in an environment with a lot of freedom and self supervision. We currently have a small, tight-knit team but are poised to scale up quickly, so this position has a lot of potential for growth for the right candidate. We've got some pretty impressive hardware resources to play with, and we respect powder days.

Necessary Skills:

* Demonstrated experience working with and administering Linux installations (Fedora/Red Hat preferred)

* Demonstrated experience developing software including automated testing

Nice to Have:

* Experience with Groovy, Bash, JavaScript, and Python scripting and development

* Web application development experience using a modern framework like Node.js, Rails, Django, or Grails

* Familiarity with Spock testing framework for Groovy

* Experience managing a grid compute environment (SunGrid) VPN administration experience

* Experience building computers and working with server hardware

About Us:

We are a financial start-up located in Park City, UT capitalizing on exponentially improving processing power and machine learning algorithms to disrupt the money management industry. We combine state-of-the-art hardware (we've got our own, in-house GPU super computer) with a variety of machine learning techniques to develop data-inspired investment strategies. We strive for a "Work Hard, Play Hard" mentality and live in Park City for a reason - some of the best skiing, mountain biking, and hiking in the country is located right outside of our office. If you're looking for a relatively entry-level position with a lot of potential for advancement outside of the Bay Area bubble, we want to hear from you.

If this sounds interesting, submit your resume, cover letter, github profile (if applicable) and/or code sample to jobs@aiqinvestments.com. We'd love to hear details of any projects (professional or academic) that you're proud of and had an important/lead role in bringing to fruition too.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me personally by email (see profile)
