We are looking for a technical, entrepreneurial-minded Back-end Engineer to help us create solutions that modernize the traditional financial services industry. You will define, develop, deploy and maintain a number of real-time event driven services that will be the foundation of the new platform. Working alongside experienced technologists and industry SMEs, you will build this exciting new platform that will simplify, automate and facilitate access to financial markets for all.
The role is for someone who is passionate about applying modern technology to replace monolithic and hard-to-access incumbent systems. Along the way, you’ll learn about the problem space and re-imagine existing solutions. You will work on a number of back-end services and integration solutions using multiple languages and frameworks.
This is an opportunity to join a fast-paced team with the urgency of a startup and expertise of an established organization. We are a flat organization which will afford you the ability to gain access to personnel and resources necessary to execute on your vision. PEAK6 is a privately-held organization focused on delivering long-term value rather than short-term gains. This translates to a focus on bringing solutions for an industry and not bespoke products. Due to the space we innovate in, your products will process billions of transactions per day, in real-time, and power both startup and established industry participants.
You will report to the Head of Engineering but work closely with everyone across the organization.
This role can be based out of Irvine, Portland, Dallas, or Chicago
