Kensho, Boston, MA (Cambridge), Stamford, CT, New York, NY: FULL TIME Software Engineers (INTERN in Cambridge)

Kensho is a small engineering team[0] headquartered in Harvard Sq. We are making financial analysis more accessible, intuitive and beautiful through our recent partnerships with Goldman Sachs[1] and CNBC[2]

Software Engineers

We're hiring fun-loving nerds at every experience level. While we primarily use Python (especially pandas and NumPy) and AngularJS, that is just implementation detail and you can interview in the language of your choice. We look for people who a hungry to learn, figure things out quickly, and love technology and math.

How would you handle distributed time series data? How quickly could you process and analyze unstructured news and events to understand the significance of each? When you design, prototype, scale and automate, do you watch out for bridges and hop-ons? You're gonna get some hop-ons [3]

A willingness to play bughouse, ticket to ride, and shoot zombies is a plus.
