Platform Engineering @ Clear Street

There is a serious issue facing financial markets: Traders have outgrown the infrastructure that big banks and brokerages use to serve them. Prices are rising, access is declining, and innovation is slowing as a result. Clear Street is building an alternative — a modern brokerage engineered for growth. It runs on a cloud-based platform that’s designed API-first for flexibility, reliability, scale, and speed. As a member of our Platform team, you will sit at the center of our trade-processing problem set, which oversees the business logic and distributed architecture other teams rely on to build great products. In addition, you will develop data-intensive services and solve complex challenges of scale. If this sounds like a fit for you, we’d love to connect.
