Job Description

PIMCO is a global leader in active fixed income. With our launch in 1971 in Newport Beach, California, PIMCO introduced investors to a total return approach to fixed income investing. In the 50+ years since, we have worked relentlessly to help millions of investors pursue their objectives – regardless of shifting marketing conditions. As active investors, our goal is not just to find opportunities, but to create them. To this end, we remain firmly committed to the pursuit of our mission: delivering superior investment returns, solutions, and service to our clients.

Since 1971, our people have shaped our organization through a high-performance inclusive culture, in which we celebrate diverse thinking. We invest in our people and strive to imprint our CORE values of Collaboration, Openness, Responsibility and Excellence.

Our quant business is expanding and as a result we are looking for a small number of exceptional technologists to build solutions for the desk and the underlying quant research and trading platform.

You will work closely with quant portfolio managers converting research ideas into production trading strategies, building research infrastructure (market data, backtest, compute) and trading platform (position, risk, controls, strategy frameworks, deployment, visualization, observability). Your code will trade billions of dollars and as a result we value the ability to move quickly, with attention to detail and engineering fundamentals to build clean code that is tested, trusted and can be leveraged by other engineers and Quant PMs.
