Our client is a global investment firm with offices in New York, NY, Menlo Park, CA, and Beijing, China. The firm manages $10+ billion in assets on behalf of individuals, nonprofit organizations, and institutional investors by focusing on high growth investments in the technology, media, and telecommunications space in both the public and private markets. Their investment approach consists of making a small number of investments based on rigorous proprietary research. They are look to have a multi-year holding period, an approach which has led to uncommon returns for our investors through a broad range of market conditions over the past 15+ years.
They are in the middle of building a market intelligence platform based on non-traditional data (ie. Nonfinancial data). We look for unique and creative sources of data (everything from e-commerce pricing to satellite data), use it to model key firm and economic metrics, and present it to investment staff.
Our market intelligence platform is used daily by analysts to assess and predict firm specific trends (think questions like "Is Uber gaining market share in Boston? Can online players actually challenge traditional grocery stores? What's our best prediction for sales of company X next quarter?").
We're seeking an engineer with Spark Expertise as well as DevOps experience.
