About the Firm:

Cambridge Associates was founded in the early 1970s to assist nonprofit institutions with the investment of their endowment assets. Today, we provide investment management, financial planning and proprietary capital markets research to over 990 clients including nonprofit institutions, private clients (families) and pension plans.

The firm advises on assets in all asset categories, including equities, bonds, non-US investments, real estate, venture capital, hedge funds, leveraged buyout funds, oil and gas partnerships, and many other types of investments. We monitor the performance of nearly all major institutional investment managers and provide an advanced monitoring service for our clients to evaluate alternative assets managers such as venture capital and private equity.

About the Team:

The Portfolio Workbench team sits at the center of Cambridge Associates' business, building the mission-critical application that drives our investment process. We are a small closely knit team, but we have a big and far-reaching impact.

The decisions we make, the technologies we use, and the things we build are shaping the future of our firm. We're building a portfolio management system from scratch that will provide sophisticated analytics to facilitate data-driven investment decisions across thousands of assets. We design robust solutions that unify our firm's varied needs.

We have the opportunity to try new things that have never been attempted before. We release frequently and have the flexibility to act upon changing business conditions. Our application is set to transform how our firm does business.

About You:

You have an interest in financial markets and welcome breaking down challenging problems. You're self-motivated and can work independently, but you're not afraid to ask for help when you need it.

You understand the importance of testing your work. You have experience in Java or similar languages. You have a Computer Science, Engineering, or related degree.

A bonus if you have experience with Spring, AWS, Elasticsearch, JavaScript, or Angular. You must be eligible to work in the US without sponsorship.
