Quantopian is a crowd-sourced hedge fund.

Quantopian provides a platform for you to build, test, and execute trading algorithms. Live trading algorithms can become part of our crowd-sourced hedge fund where top quant talent is matched with outside investor capital.

Our mission is to attract the world’s best algorithmic and financial talent, including talent that hasn’t yet had the opportunity to be a quant. We want to bring this talent together, provide them with the tools that they require, and help them build a community.

Using Quantopian's tools, you don't have to worry about infrastructure and data quality problems. Let us deal with all that while you focus on building, testing, refining, and trading your investment ideas.

So far, our users have performed 4,140,518 years' worth of backtests!

Come hack Wall Street with us.

At Quantopian, we’re building the world’s first algorithmic trading platform in the cloud. Our engineers are all generalists who write, test, and deploy code across our stack. Each of us also has an area of deep, focused excellence.

Come help us tackle hard problems and build something that will make a difference. We’re still a small company (our daily standups include every employee!), so you’ll play a major role in shaping our direction and enjoy a complete lack of bureaucracy. Our small size and ambitious goals dictate our approach to talent acquisition and retention: we believe in hiring the best engineers and giving them hard problems to solve and the autonomy to solve them.

Our office is conveniently located in Downtown Crossing. We offer flexible work hours and a deeply ingrained respect for a healthy work/life balance. We offer generous benefits, including 401(k) matching, stock options, and health insurance with no employee premium.

In addition to the positions below, we're always interested in talking to talented engineers, traders, product managers, and designers. Email us at [email protected].
