We are looking for beginning to intermediate Scripters to join our team in Boulder. We build websites, web applications, mobile apps and data APIs for the financial markets. You would be writing code to support applications and systems to serve five billion data hungry hits per month. You will work with massive data sets and tiny response times. We host everything that we build and take pride in the availability and performance that our multiple data centers provide.
We also keep a few side projects up our sleeves, and are always looking at ways to transform the financial markets with our tools and innovation.
What you are able to do:
o Familiarity with XML and XSLT
o Ability to understand and enhance XSL stylesheets
o Be self-motivated, and willing to have some responsibility. But also know when to ask for help or a code review.
o Communicate and collaborate with others effectively. In-person, email, IM, your cohorts want to be able to bounce ideas off of you.
o Work under deadline to write and release high-quality code, and get to see the benefits of your work used by real people on a massive scale.
o Be willing to learn new things, whether they are about the markets, a new programming language or technique, or an entirely new approach to solving problems.
o Have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a comparable field, as well as a few years of experience under your belt.
Other skills that we keep an eye out for include: experience with deployment and build tools, service-oriented architectures, unit testing, shell and batch scripting, experience with any and all flavors of db engines, data formats like XML and JSON, and a wicked sense of humor. Knowledge and interest pertaining to the financial markets is always helpful, but not required.
Please send along a resume, any technical side projects, open source contributions, and personal websites or blogs, because we'd love to have you join our team.
