DEV / OPS
DATA ENGINEER

Lightkeeper™ is a rapidly growing and innovative software company looking to add talented people to its team. Our firm is committed to providing financial services firms with the tools necessary to intuitively access all relevant portfolio information through one platform.

Our data solutions staff works on interesting problems every day ranging from handling massive data sets, resolving them together with disparate, scattered identifiers and finding automated solutions to cleaning up the often messy data sets we receive. We aggregate data from many different public and private sources before storing them and making them accessible in a standardized API.

Data serves as the backbone of the system because our visualizations are only as good as the data behind them. We take pride in simplifying the data into something that is easy to access and manipulate and ultimately provides insights to our customers.

A good fit for our team is someone who can adapt and contribute to different areas of the system depending on the need. Getting your hands dirty and being willing to dig into a new problem is critical to both doing the job well and keeping it interesting.
