Occupy the bid-offer spread: is hiring

A former member
Post #: 1

The credit crisis of 2008 exposed a critical need for greater transparency in over-the-counter markets. Benchmark Solutions was founded in 2009 by finance and technology experts to provide the same level of price transparency in the fixed income and derivatives markets as available in the equities markets. We build high quality, scalable technology quickly and yes, Scala has a place in our stack. We are looking for quantitatively oriented Scala developers with statistical, financial, mathematical and/or machine learning backgrounds.

Benchmark is the world's first financial data assimilation company, where the emphasis is on "data assimilation" in the scientific, statistical meaning of the phrase. We provide the first ever, fully independent, streaming, market-driven pricing. With over $30M invested in human capital and technology to date, we created the industry’s only fully independent, streaming, market-driven bond and derivative pricing. Unlike other market data vendors who aggregate prices supplied by large dealers, our proprietary technology carefully analyzes the relevance of millions of market inputs to generate unbiased prices, updated every 10 seconds, offering real-time access to market-driven pre-trade pricing intelligence. In essence, our algorithms think like an experienced trader by emulating the process they go through when pricing bonds, with the ability to synthesize millions of market inputs dynamically. We are automating the price discovery role played by bulge bracket firms operating in opaque markets, thereby affecting a dramatic leveling the playing field.

Led by CEO Jim Toffey (Founder and CEO of Tradeweb), we are business, finance and technology professionals passionate about true market transparency. We employ over 70 professionals and are headquartered in NYC.
We are a portfolio company of Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity firm. Interested candidates should send resumes to Stafford.Lowe at
