With customizable reporting, financial advisors can visualize and communicate relevant information to anyone who needs it.

At its core, Addepar is a data company. We’re building interoperability and transparency across hundreds of financial systems, and creating more powerful and robust financial applications on top of that platform.
The technical effort involved is massive. Platform Engineers at Addepar build portfolio data ingestion systems that process tens of millions of transactions across millions of accounts every day. Our team develops pricing and reference data systems that provide coverage for nearly a trillion dollars in assets, and distributed computation systems that allow users to run complex analytical computations over massive data sets in real time
As a Software Engineer on Addepar's Platform Engineering team, you will be challenged to balance architecting elegant scalable systems with hitting critical business deadlines. We're looking for driven engineers with real technical depth and a desire to understand the end business. Most of all, we want people who are passionate and care deeply about the success of the whole team.
The group you’ll be joining includes senior engineers and leads who have worked at companies like Facebook, Google, DE Shaw, and other top quantitative hedge funds. We value the experience you bring to the table, too. If you've built complex, scalable systems in the past or worked with great teams on hard problems in financial data, join us.
Our engineering team works in Java and Python, but we don’t require prior experience with any specific tool set. Great software engineers can pick up new languages on the job.
The problems we’re tackling at Addepar are complex, but they’re also globally important. Addepar has the potential to make a huge swath of private investing more transparent, more efficient, and more ethical. If you’re interested in that, we’re excited to meet you.
