Requirements
  • When he's not solving riddles and dancing salsa, David's writing distributed computing APIs. He regularly solves bugs like “one out of a million jobs are dying on only these machines and only on Tuesdays”. He likes bridging the gap between Algo Strategy Developers and Systems Engineers to explore how to use distributed computing to run research. He really enjoys coming up with ways to make millions of jobs more efficient
  • Before joining HRT, Jessie worked in big tech for 6 years, doing primarily web development. She enjoys taking unclear problems (“This job takes too long to run.”) and figuring out the right way to solve them (“The reason the speed of this job is concerning is because it's impractically slow to debug. We need more interactive debugging tools to avoid constantly restarting jobs.”). She cares about writing reliable and thoroughly tested software. When she's not coding, Jessie enjoys solo traveling (she's been to every continent except Antarctica!), reading far too many books, and speaking at conferences
  • Aaron started programming at age 5 and previously ran the research team at a music software company, bringing over 7 years of experience to HRT. He cooks and practices partner acrobatics in his free time. He gets joy from his teammates' happiness when their research runs twice as fast, from building them tools that help them visualize their strategies, and from keeping code organized and maintainable. He's gotten coworkers from other teams involved in latency improvements to his group's live trading. He enjoys the collaborative environment and learning from his coworkers
