Linux is truly the heart of our prod and dev environments, and the OS plays a critical role in everything we do. We’re looking for an extraordinary Linux Engineer to join our Systems group. Our dream candidate would have not only impressive knowledge of RHEL (the overall distribution, kernel and subsystems, config management, virtualization, etc.), but also would be strong enough as a generalist (storage, networks, basic SDLC and project management) to be able to architect, build, and run a world-class platform. It’s not a systems programming job, but you’ll be most successful if you have some coding and automation ability beyond simple scripting.
Building a great environment means a tight feedback loop, so although others are primarily responsible for monitoring and first-line support, we think it’s important for Engineers to own the entire lifecycle. Our client small and nimble enough that you can get your hands dirty while still being transformative, and our org is relatively flat; you’d report directly to the Managing Director in charge of Systems.

They strive to be the best quantitative investment firm on the planet, not by assets under management, but by the quality of our products. As a place to work our client's extremely high employee-retention rate speaks for itself. Their people are intellectually exceptional and our community is close-knit, down-to-earth, and diverse.
