Addepar is building a single platform unifying hundreds of portfolio and market data systems and leveraging that platform to create robust, powerful financial applications.
The technical effort involved is massive. Our data ingestion platform processes tens of millions of transactions across millions of accounts every day and our pricing and reference data systems provide analytics coverage for nearly two trillion dollars in assets. We build and run our own distributed financial computation framework that allows clients to run complex analysis of massive data sets in real time. We design robust APIs and powerful, versatile user interfaces to empower wealth managers to ask nuanced questions about their clients' holdings.
Addepar’s success depends on our ability to deliver a comprehensive and scalable API platform that provides value to our partner and developer communities. Paramount to that success is a focus on APIs as products, ensuring that we iteratively build out solutions that deliver meaningful outcomes to consumers. We manage the API development lifecycle from definition to delivery, ensuring that we deliver concise, consistent, and intuitive, interfaces. We strive to innovate our API capabilities without disrupting existing consumers. We focus on developer experience, providing clear documentation, a seamless onboarding experience, and access to tooling. We partner with teams across the organization including SRE, InfoSec, and Product Engineering to ensure we are building reliable and secure APIs that expose the full functionality of the Addepar platform.
Our engineering team primarily works in Java, but we don’t require prior experience with any specific tool set. Great software engineers can pick up new languages on the job. More than checking the boxes on specific technologies, we're looking for driven engineers with real technical depth and a desire to deliver end products that deliver joy to users. We want people who are passionate and care deeply about the success of the whole company.
The problems we’re tackling at Addepar are complex, but they’re also globally important. Addepar has the potential to make private investing more transparent, more efficient, and more ethical. If you’re interested in that, we’re excited to meet you.
