About Clear Street:

Clear Street is building modern infrastructure for capital markets. Founded in 2018 by top Wall Street and Silicon Valley veterans, Clear Street is an independent, non-bank prime broker designed to solve the industry’s most neglected problem: legacy technology.

We have built a proprietary, cloud-native clearing and custody system from the ground floor to replace the outdated infrastructure used across capital markets. Our platform is fully integrated with central clearing houses and exchanges to support billions in trading volume per day. We’ve agonized about our data model abstractions, created horizontal scalability, and crafted thoughtful APIs. All so we can provide a best-in-class experience for our clients.

By combining highly-skilled product and engineering talent with seasoned finance professionals, we’re building the essentials to compete in today’s fast-paced markets.

The Role:

  • You will build highly efficient and intuitive web-based trading interfaces for our trading desk and external customers
  • You will work closely with backend engineers to define the optimal API surface for your product
  • You will monitor and collect usage statistics on your products and improve them iteratively
  • You will create end-to-end tests to validate UI functionality

The Team:

The Securities Finance Engineering team builds trading platforms for various Securities Finance businesses including Securities Lending, Repo, Agency Lending, Delta 1 and Treasury. We are a team of specialists with skills across various aspects of engineering, quantitative modeling and product.

Clear Street is building out its Securities Finance Trading Platform from the ground up. Members of the team have the unique opportunity in the industry to build large scale, sophisticated trading systems on a modern and scalable technology stack from scratch.

We employ a wide variety of technologies including Java/Spring Boot (for our service mesh), React (front-end), python and R for ETL/Analytics and statistical modeling respectively. Clear Street Engineering provides a modern developer experience for engineers, including excellent CI/CD tooling and a managed k8s environment.

  • You have 5+ years of experience building REACT-based front-ends
  • You have 5+ years of javascript/typescript development experience
  • Experience building highly dynamic pages using SSEs/web sockets
  • Experience writing front-end tests using Cypress or a similar framework

Bonus Points:
