  • You will work at an ETH-spinoff founded in 2005 that does risk-management calculations for Switzerland’s private banks; this is a great way to be exposed to the perks you get when working in Finance (e.g., high pay) without the pain associated when working within a bank. The startup is 60 people and half is technical. Your team is crossfunctional and has four members.
  • So far, mainly Java has been used but recently the team switched to Python for some of the crucial Math work. Using Python, you will optimise portfolios and calculate risks while engineering a cloud solution around it (in a Dockerized environment). In this role, you will be expected to excel at software craftsmanship principles like testing and clean code.

Interview process:

  • 1) Quick CV check.
  • 2) 2-3 hours coding task that will reflect the actual work you will do with us, so you get a taste of what is expected.
  • 3) Onsite interview.


  • No telecommuting
  • Agencies are OK
