Want to work at the forefront of a fast-growing and award winning FinTech company? With an incredible team and partners looking for innovative results, we're rapidly growing and continue to add new asset classes to our offerings. As a cloud-based company, we transitioned seamlessly into a socially-distanced workforce in 2020, and with a pace that hasn't slowed, we're still hiring and are currently on the lookout for smart and collaborative talent to join our team. We are currently operating remotely, and will transition to a flexible and hybrid model later this year.

  • Previous experience within the WealthTech domain

 

 

Preferred Qualifications

 

 

  • Understanding of the different components of the technology stack for a cloud-based application
  • Proven ability to operate within the fast-paced nature of a growth company

 

 

We offer a competitive salary and benefits, the chance to work with a curated team of top-notch, highly creative talent, and a fun and agile work environment with many perks in New York City's Hudson Yards district, but are operating remotely through at least summer 2021.

An Insider's view of SIMON

What are some social events your company does?

We’ve focused on keeping the company connected during these times, and it’s been great to continue to connect with coworkers we wouldn’t otherwise see. Whether it’s virtual tastings, cooking classes, or our upcoming holiday party, I’m thankful to work for a company that cares so much about its employees!

Autumn

Platform Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

We pride ourselves on the fluidity and evolving nature of pivoting on a swivel to focus on the pressing priorities of that minute, day, or week. Being surrounded by driven teammates with equal intellectual curiosity creates an environment that pushes us to pursue the work we are passionate about while cohesively striving towards goals as a team!

Olivia

Senior Business Operations Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

SIMON is my first job following graduation from my master’s, and during my two years, I grew from junior to senior level and am now working on advanced projects. I learn new things every day with plenty of opportunities to cross-collaborate and integrate with clients. Join us and you too will grow at a pace you cannot imagine!

Stacey

Senior Quantitative Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is essential–it helps us find innovative ways to leverage new technologies to meet our clients’ needs. I’m always available to act as sounding board for ideas and feedback, encourage cross-team collaboration, empower decision making creating a culture where we learn from mistakes rather than be discouraged, and set the right example.
