The Role

The Operating Platform (“OP”) is responsible for all data acquisition, storage, conversion, cleansing, disambiguation, modeling, tooling, infrastructure, and provisioning of portfolio, market, account, and reference data. The platform will provide a “data fabric” foundation on which the Addepar-as-a-multi-product strategy can be executed. OP will be the single source of truth for data within Addepar and includes a centralized and self-describing repository (aka Data Lake), a set of API-driven data services, an integration pipeline, analytics infrastructure, warehousing solutions, and operating tools.

We want people who are hard-working and care deeply about solving hard problems at scale, delighting customers, and participating in the success of the whole company. We look for dedicated engineers with real technical depth and a desire to understand the end business. If you've designed sophisticated scalable systems, or worked with great teams on hard problems in financial data, or are just interested in tackling complicated technical, critically important problems, come join us!

PHISHING SCAM WARNING: Addepar is among several companies recently made aware of a phishing scam involving con artists posing as hiring managers recruiting via email, text and social media. The imposters are creating misleading email accounts, conducting remote “interviews,” and making fake job offers in order to collect personal and financial information from unsuspecting individuals. Please be aware that no job offers will be made from Addepar without a formal interview process. Additionally, Addepar will not ask you to purchase equipment or supplies as part of your onboarding process. If you have any questions, please reach out to TAinfo@addepar.com.
