FDB Systems builds data products for hedge funds and other investors - we have a growing portfolio of niche data products (e.g. https://filingdb.com/) and we also create bespoke data solutions for clients. Our core team has deep domain experience having worked for tier-1 funds (on the discretionary and systematic sides) and at other successful startups prior to starting the company. We launched our services just before the pandemic but have nevertheless seen strong growth and we now count some of the world's best funds among our clients. The company is revenue and cash generative with a very strong balance sheet - we are funding most expansion organically through revenues but, in addition, we have raised a small amount of money from excellent investors and have won a research grant for the past year.
As the first tech hire, you will:
* take ownership of parts of the stack
* be involved in architectural decisions
* work on improving our tech and process to handle the global expansion of our main data product.
This is a great fit for anyone who likes building well-running, efficient pipelines.
* Python backend
* AWS for infrastructure
* React for internal tooling frontend
We are a small company and we are genuinely passionate about our space and finance more widely. If you have an interest in finance (in whatever form) and want to experience developing and improving products for some of the best funds in the world, we think you would enjoy working with us. We are an early stage company and that means everything you do will have an immediate and lasting impact on the business: you will be able to work on a variety of projects, with real ownership of core elements and very little management overheads to deal with. We are positioned as the highest quality provider in our space and this focus on quality runs through our entire culture - we really enjoy our work and spending time with colleagues but our environment is a professional and respectful one.
