Office, Culture, Compensation

We have a full snack bar in the kitchen, and weekly catered lunches. We tend to eat lunch together geeking out about the latest in tech. The only rule during lunch is no work talk! And of course, the foosball table is a fun distraction. We've equipped engineers with a beautiful dual monitor, standing desk made from solid walnut, along with privacy screens and noise canceling headphones. We've installed phone booths for meetings to keep the office quiet. 

We offer market compensation, along with full healthcare coverage for employees and 25% coverage for dependents, along with medical, dental, stock options, and unlimited vacations. But more important than benefits, we are a company of visionaries, passionate about our work and are seeking like-minded team members.

This is a startup. It will be fun, self-directed, challenging but also gritty and unpolished! Only the brave should apply =)

We've posted the first few positions on LinkedIn -- submit your application there. If there's a position I've mentioned here not on LinkedIn yet apply to something close and let me know what interests you.

Does c++ port mean that you will end support for .NET users? Or you will commit to both Lean versions?

0

In principle, we will commit to C++ and all supported languages at the moment C#, F# and Python.

In the past, Lean/QuantConnect had supported Java, but the integration wasn't easy and the user base was inexistent, so we have chosen to drop Java by removing it as a build dependency of LEAN and it is not available in the cloud.

Thanks for posting here...I signed up a few years ago, but just now exploring this. Love the random backtesting names.

So far, I'm impressed.  Great work here building this company thus far.  You've already got some really big names on board (i.e. OANDA, GDAX, FXCM, IB covers forex - Remaining US brokers are Forex.com and IG and Binance (China) for crypto).  Unless you have exclusive rights in your contracts, you may try partnering with other cutting edge companies such as Robinhood and maybe Tastyworks.  I'm not telling you something you don't already know here.  I maybe be able to help with market outreach, education, and sales. 

Tastyworks and Tastytrade have their unique ways of trading.  They have excellent and free information as part of their business model which empowers their clients and makes them/us/me loyal. Speaking of theTastynation leader, just go see Tom Sosnoff speak next time he comes to your town in Seattle (The Money Show).  I met him when he came to Dallas, TX. He is very approachable, easy, and fun to talk to.  I'm not exactly sure how algo trading would fit in...that is what brainstorming sessions are for, right?  He helped develop the Think or Swim (ToS) platform. At a minimum, we could easily code and run their Market Measures strategies. I will probably do that anyway, time permitting. Anyway, possibilities are endless.  Speaking of ToS, TradeStation comes to mind.  That has got to be one of the Algo OGs; born in the 1980s!  A trading platform with "easy language" built by traders for traders (one of their catch phrases - I like it, and it sells).

Anyhow, I probably chose the wrong forum here.  I'm a Contracting Officer for the Federal Government, so we get some of the best training in negotiation, leadership, etc.  We can edit this post and I email you, or just delete it altogether.  The possibilites are endless!  =)
