Cambrian applies a data and software-driven approach to investment management


We are seeking an experienced full stack software engineer to become a core member of our technical team. The ideal candidate will have deep, hands-on technical experience and development skills as well as a strong appetite to learn new technology. This role will work directly with the Head of Engineering to develop, test, and deploy business-critical systems. As an individual contributor you will have significant ownership of core codebases and opportunities to explore cutting edge technologies.

Cambrian is a quantitative investment firm for digital assets and applies a data and software-driven approach to investment management. Our goal is to earn our investors exceptional, uncorrelated absolute returns while limiting downside risks. We use data-driven, probabilistic models and sophisticated, automated trade execution algorithms. We have been in business since 2017, are well capitalized, profitable, and growing quickly. Cambrian’s investors include notable quantitative, hedge fund and technology investors from firms such as Renaissance Technologies, First Round Capital, and Google.

Cambrian is very much a technology company with a heavy emphasis on research and development. You do not need experience in finance to succeed in this role. This role would be an excellent opportunity for someone who has deep experience in software development looking for a challenge that is not a traditional technology or Internet company. You will utilize data, software and machine learning systems to create exceptional and measurable results as part of a small, experienced team.

Cambrian places great emphasis on integrity and diligence. We are building a team that is collaborative and inclusive. We value doing something well over doing it quickly. If you have the technical experience and think you would thrive in this type of environment, we offer very competitive compensation and benefits.


  • 5+ years of software development experience at a technology company.
  • Experience with code reviews, git version control, branching and rebasing.
  • Excellent proficiency in full-stack web development.
  • Mastery of programming in Java, Javascript, and Python.
  • Extensive experience working with APIs (REST & websocket)
  • Strong interpersonal and collaboration skills.
  • Bachelor's degree in computer science or related field.


  • Work with the Head of Engineering, data engineering team, and Chief Investment Officers to design, develop, and deploy sophisticated quantitative trading strategies.
  • Continue development of high-performance systems that make sub-millisecond trading decisions with almost zero downtime.
  • Work on data ingestion pipelines that process billions of messages per week.
  • Take ownership of multiple source code repositories primarily in Java and Python.
  • Convert models and experiments built by data scientists into production-ready code.
  • Help ensure maximum uptime of mission critical systems.
  • Automate cloud deployments and build out dev-ops infrastructure.
  • As a key member of the software engineering team, you will take an active role in the definition and evolution of standard practices and procedures.
  • Work is non-routine, challenging, and interesting, involving the application of advanced technical/business skills in quantitative investing.
  • Become a leading contributor individually and as a team member, providing direction and mentoring to others.

Cambrian is committed to providing the following:

  • A growth-oriented workplace
  • An inclusive and transparent corporate culture
  • Flexibility to balance working from the office and from home.
  • Competitive compensation consists of salary, annual bonus, equity participation, and benefits including health care coverage.


Since this is a senior position, the interview process will be in multiple stages.

Qualified applicants will have an initial video call to discuss his or her resume and prior experience.

Some applicants will then be asked to perform an at-home mock code review or assignment.

Top candidates will then have a technical interview with the head of engineering and non-technical interviews with the CEO.


Cambrian is committed fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace early in our hiring process. We value contributors with education and experience that would be considered non- traditional in finance.
