Desired Skills
Data Analysis
  • Strong programming experience in Python
  • Experience in at least one of the following:
  • Data infrastructure experience - you know how to really store data; and no, we don't mean just knowing not to save an Excel file on your desktop (everyone knows that's messy and it should be in a nicely named folder)
  • Experience managing ETL pipelines and working with financial data vendors and their various delivery methods
  • Experience in serving data in a large, distributed system
  • Experience working on financial datasets, such as fundamental, alternative, news or reference data (e.g. IBES, Refinitiv, Barra, Factset, Compustat)
  • Track record of working successfully in a collaborative environment
  • Top-notch communication skills
  • You have a minimum of 2-3 years of experience working in data infrastructure and/or with financial datasets
  • You possess a Bachelor's degree in computer science, engineering, math or a related field
  • You may pride yourself about that dataset quirk nobody else understands (or knows about), and have automated or normalized a data processing pipeline or two
  • You enjoy being part of an amazing team but don't mind working alone on a difficult problem
  • You can investigate and fix problems quickly
  • You really like to work with people who motivate you and make you better
  • Partner and support our business users in their interactions with the data platform and ensure smooth delivery of data - from across the landscape of alternative, reference, financial, and market data across all asset classes
  • Evaluate, clean, and normalize data; perform initial quantitative analysis to assess suitability of data under trail and develop pipelines to automate processes
  • Pair up with Algo Developers to onboard and study alternative datasets for use in our trading strategies; revisit and enhance the data workflows around existing datasets to make research more productive; normalize key metrics across multiple data vendors
  • Work closely with financial and alternative data vendors, including Bloomberg, Refinitiv and many others, and navigate their various delivery platforms (FTP, APIs, etc)
  • Build tools and automation capabilities for our data pipeline in order to ensure the overall quality of our data platform
  • Design and implement HRT's data storage strategy to help drive successful delivery and access of data in our data centers around the world
Desired Qualifications
  • Experience in numpy/pandas is a plus, but not required
