Boosted.ai | Web Developer | Toronto, ON | ONSITE | $150-200K

(Fully remote until at least the end of this year; onsite downtown Toronto eventually.)


Boosted.ai makes machine learning investment techniques accessible to institutional investors. We ingest and clean a huge volume of financial data, and allow our customers to create and test their own models through an interface designed to be friendly to non-ML practitioners.

They bring an investment thesis or strategy; our product lets them implement it more successfully than they could with Excel or simpler quantitative methods.

We have major US and Canadian banks as customers and have recently closed an 11MM (CAD) series A. Though we are a young company, our operating costs are already ~50% covered by recurring customer revenue and we are well-positioned to continue growing even through the recession.


I’m looking to hire two developers who can help us build complex and data-rich web applications. These applications are what allow our users to create new machine learning models and portfolios, and view their performance over time.

Full stack developers welcome but our team is weakest in front end right now, so expertise and interest there is a must. Some UX design / wire-framing ability is a strong plus. Experience building financial products is nice but not required… we can teach you.

Beyond feature development, a very important part of this position is laying the foundation for stable and productive future growth in our team.

We respect your time: at most two one-hour phone screens and a half day of “remote onsite” interviews; we can do the whole thing in a week if you want. Interviews are a mix of algorithmic questions and realistic pair programming work, as well as introspective / soft skills questions to assess how you approach teamwork and problem solving.

Last thing I’ll say is: this is a difficult job with high expectations + oncall rotation, but it pays well. I want people who will show up and be very productive at work, earn their paycheque/equity, and then log off and enjoy the rest of their lives. It is not an all-consuming start-up. We are a supportive, collaborative team and have no interest in stereotypical finance or tech bro culture.

Email me [email protected] if interested.
