Quantitative Developer Lead


This is a Full-time position in Boston, MA posted June 8, 2021.

Working at 55ip means standing at the intersection of finance and technology-and at the cutting-edge of wealth management.

We’ve been making rapid progress on our mission: to break down barriers to financial progress for financial advisors and their clients.

Our Boston
– and Mumbai-based team has built and brought to market a tax-smart investment strategy engine delivering an intuitive experience and intelligent automation.

Driven by strategic partnerships with world-class asset management firms, such as BlackRock and J.P.

Morgan, we’ve experienced breakthrough growth over the last year.

Today, over 110 financial advisor firms with $28 billion in assets (and counting) are using 55ip.

If we look a little different, it’s because we are.

We’re entrepreneurs, product pros, investment scientists, and customer advocates who aim to deliver an exceptional experience-and have fun doing it.

Like lots of companies, we’ve got a deep bench of smart, talented, creative people, but our superpower is something else: hustle.

That extra push when others would quit, that new approach nobody else has tried, that ability to be thrive at 30,000 feet or dig into the details-and to do it all with humility, empathy, and respect.

As we enter an exciting new chapter as a separately-branded subsidiary of J.P.

Morgan, we’re looking for top talent-with hustle-to join us on our path to becoming an industry standard.
