My name is Charles Weitzer.  I have a client with a startup quantitative
hedge fund located in Northern California. The Fund currently manages a very
healthy amount of capital.  The founders have PhD's in Computer Science from
Stanford and in Statistics from Berkeley. They have made unpublished
discoveries in the field of Machine Learning and in other areas as well.
This is a small, nimble company that is going to be the next big thing in
terms of quantitative strategies and systems.  


The team is looking for an extremely talented software architect to design
and build a new trading system and to rebuild their current system.  The
position is very challenging intellectually and involves architecting and
implementing a diverse set of core infrastructures, including new production
systems, scientific-computing environments, and modern data stores. From the
company's point of view, this is a distributed computing problem. The
position is definitely high-impact and the scope of work mostly greenfield.
There is quite a bit of freedom in the choice of software tooling (e.g. it
doesn't have to be C++ or Java and they are very open to Erlang, Scala,
Haskell, and others).


Qualifications include a proven track record of writing correct,
well-designed software, solving hard problems and delivering complex
projects on time. You should preferably have experience with high assurance,
distributed, fault-tolerant systems. Experience with functional programming
as well as real-time, low-latency, cache-friendly systems is a very big
bonus. They are getting big fast, so a willingness to take initiative and a
gritty determination to produce is essential. The title, scope, and level of
seniority is very flexible. As well, given their returns, this is a chance
to become extremely wealthy.


Join a team that includes faculty at premier universities and PhD's from
top-tier schools, led by the founder and CEO of a successful Internet
infrastructure startup. You will have high-impact, and can expect frequent
interaction with the researchers, officers, and founders.


Compensation and benefits are highly competitive.

If you know of someone who you would highly recommend, I would appreciate it
if you could forward this on to them.
