VP of Engineering (Ruby) for Disruptive Startup in the FinTech Space

at Estimize in New York, NY   —   Jul 14, 2014   |  
Leigh Drogen Co-Founder and CEO
Overview
Do you love the market, data viz, quantitative analysis, building innovative software and disrupting broken industries? We're doing all of that, and more.

A year ago I (Leigh Drogen Co-Founder and CEO) left my position at StockTwits to build Estimize, the first platform producing structured social finance data. Since launching into beta in early December 2011, the Estimize community and data set has captured the attention of some of the largest hedge funds and financial media outlets for the disruption it is causing to sell side Wall Street research.

We're now looking to scale the platform, add new features, and generate revenue, and we need an experienced VP of Engineering to lead our technical team. We raised capital from some of the biggest voices in the social finance space, and have the overwhelming backing from this community which would like nothing else than to see Wall Street get disrupted.

We're looking for an experienced software engineer who wants a significant equity stake and can lead both the team and the process of executing our roadmap. If you're up for the challenge, come and join us.
