Company Overview

We are on a mission to ensure that the financial system is routing money to the best ideas while helping people build and protect their long-term financial health. Our platform empowers financial advisors to learn about, build personalized strategies around, and invest in (previously inaccessible) private investments to help them grow their businesses and improve the outcomes of their clients. 

The market for private investments is expected to grow by $2 trillion in the next decade, but remains largely inaccessible to the majority of non-institutional investors. Our platform provides exclusive educational content, personalized guidance, bespoke investment options, and a streamlined investment process to help make these investments more accessible than ever before. 


The Role

Software Engineers at Opto Investments are tasked with the challenge of turning complex business problems into elegant and pragmatic engineering solutions. We are context-driven, customer- and stakeholder-empathetic builders of tools and systems. We are end-to-end owners of engineering problems and solutions who constantly challenge one another to evolve as builders and collaborators. Oh, and we have fun along the way, because otherwise, what's the point?

The Investment Analytics team partners with investment decision makers to distill complex financial data into creative workflows for analyzing private investments. Our mission requires a diverse range of expertise including frontend, backend, data, quantitative modeling, and financial analysis, so we are a multi-faceted team that is always looking to experiment and bring clarity to the previously opaque world of private investments.

Our tech stack consists of a series of React-based Next.js Typescript applications hosted in Vercel. Behind that a collection of Aurora-backed Python and Java REST API services are hosted as containerized applications in AWS. We make use of AWS Lambda for asynchronous tasks and we rely on Snowflake for data ingestion and warehousing. Our service deployments are completely automated and execute multiple times daily. Our tech stack continues to evolve, driven by our shared principles of optimizing for modularity, scalability, and team-level service ownership.
