CoinAlpha created Hummingbot, the leading open source algorithmic trading platform for digital assets, and builds enterprise trading and market making solutions (software & services). We are looking to add yet another outstanding Python engineer to our team to work on our cutting edge trading systems.

This role fuses data engineering, algorithmic trading, and blockchain engineering to develop a high-frequency, automated quantitative trading bot, including working on a bot orchestration platform and data analysis systems to perform algo-trading at scale.

  • Add new capabilities and features such as integrations to new exchanges and new types of markets (e.g. derivatives, AMMs)
  • Be part of the core team and make a significant impact in a fast-growing, VC-backed blockchain startup

You're a great fit if you're:

  • Fluent in Python with prior experience in building commercial grade python applications
  • Have painstaking attention to detail and take pride/ownership in your code and the quality of work you produce
  • Committed to development best practices
  • Resourceful and autonomous when taking on tasks, while at the same time able to collaborate closely with teammates
  • Thrive working with emerging technologies like blockchain with little/no documentation
  • A fast learner who is excited about the potential for crypto/blockchain technology to revolutionize the world
  • Familiar with the terms and techniques of trading digital or fiat assets
