Principal Software Engineer | AWS, Big Data | Elite Hedge Fund | Boston
One of Boston's top Hedge Funds has had an elite track record of success over the past 4.5 years; they have doubled their AUM, and now have over 100$ Billion in AUM.

Lead the migration to AWS as a hands-on technical leader
Act as a critical thought leader, consulting and mentoring other teams as your new systems transform the way this entire firm leverages data
