Kensho, Boston, MA (Cambridge), Stamford, CT, New York, NY: FULL TIME Software Engineers, UX or UI Designer

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. We look for people who a hungry to learn, figure things out quickly, and are massively productive using technology and math. To really catch our eye, we love to see: * Experience at scale with machine learning, NLP, unstructured data * Charting and visualization skills in javascript * Styling, polish and responsive design

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.

UX or UI Designers We're looking to grow our UX and UI team. We love to see a strong portfolio in either UI (mocks and aesthetic, especially with simplifying complex data and interactions) or UX (workflow and wireframes).

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