At Clear Street, we are disrupting the institutional brokerage and clearing market by modernizing archaic industry segments with brand new technology. We’re changing the way institutional investors interact with the markets; offering an alternative to working with big banks. Our cloud-based API technology will empower clients to clear, settle, and finance trading activity while accessing real-time risk and position information. Our platform is built on an incredibly modern tech-stack, by pragmatic engineers focused on building intuitive and frictionless user experiences. Our tech-infused suite of customer experience-oriented prime service offerings will increase our clients’ efficiency and provide real-time insights they’ve never previously experienced.  

As a Distributed Systems Engineer, you will work with a team of passionate and highly collaborative engineers to build our core Platform. You will own the implementation of new features and services - utilizing your ability to handle the complexity inherent in large distributed systems, event driven architectures, and real-time stream processing. You will address complex problems borne of scale while drawing on your experiences designing API functionality that combine speed and consistency.


Distributed Systems Engineer Characteristics:

  • You have 2+ years of experience building large-scale, high-throughput distributed systems (we implement our code in Golang (Go), but you may be more experienced in Java or C++).
  • You have contributed to systems that deliver solutions to complex business problems with scalable event driven architectures and real time stream processing to handle massive amounts of data. In doing so, you've become familiar with Kafka.
  • You prioritize end user experience and it shows in your APIs design, functionality, and performance.
  • You have a strong command over object-oriented design patterns, data structures, and algorithms.
  • You communicate technical ideas with ease and always look to collaborate to deliver high quality products.
  • You adhere to engineering best practices and standards, are able to contribute to system design, and can help build scalable services from the ground up.

We recently started the Women's Club of Clear Street. Once a month we get together and provide a time for the women and allies of our company to connect and engage in meaningful discussion. We're really trying to create a support network for the current and future women of Clear Street.
