The new release of our analytic software for equity portfolio managers has just earned an award from Bloomberg News as the “Best advancement in investment technology in a decade.” All of us at Cabot Research want to thank you for helping make our goal a reality. We thought we needed someone with a B.S. in Computer Science from a top university, over four years of experience writing clean and highly functional code, and an excellent facility with mathematics to help bring our innovative, cloud-based analytic software to market. You brought that and much more – it was your energy, creativity, problem solving skills, sense of esthetic and ability to write clear and efficient code quickly that really made the difference. And you accomplished it with an unparalleled blend of team work and individual contributions.

Now, back to the present …

We do it through a combination of rigorous analytics, web-based software and superior client experience (i.e. software as a service).
