Insightful decks in seconds, wherever you are
COMPANY

Pellucid Analytics is a finance-oriented technology company focused on improving how investment bankers work.

BACKGROUND

We come from some of the biggest investment banks on Wall Street, where we walked in the shoes of every level from Analyst through to Managing Director over the last fifteen years. Our unrivaled investment banking pedigree is something that we are proud of and has allowed us to gain a unique perspective into the way that work actually gets done in these organizations.

We continue to provide advisory services to a bulge bracket investment bank and its clients at present, delivering some of the most valuable insights on Wall Street on sophisticated strategic financial policy topics.

Now, we are focused on utilizing our vast experience to improve investment banker workflows by introducing robust new technologies where they have not evolved for decades.

PRODUCT

Insightful decks in seconds, wherever you are.

THE PROBLEM

Investment banker workflows are served by severely outdated technologies and concepts. When spreadsheets were invented in the 1980s, investment bankers rejoiced. In the subsequent 30 years, financial software and data vendors have crammed more and more 'functionality' into this same basic application. Investment bankers find themselves using these outdated technologies in a disjointed manner, wasting valuable time stuck in a process that no longer serves them well instead of spending time generating valuable insights for their clients.

In particular, senior investment bankers are increasingly alienated by this process, as basic content can take their teams hours or even days to produce. In a fast-paced business environment where investment bankers compete on their ability to provide compelling, relevant and timely insights to their clients, inefficiencies such as this result in lost opportunities.

FOCUSING ON VALUE

Technology should liberate investment bankers from process to allow them to spend more time delivering insights and providing value to their clients. Though the insights themselves can not be automated, they are based on supporting materials that can be automated. In contrast to the incremental bolt-on updates that recent technologies have delivered unsuccessfully to investment bankers over the last 30 years, Pellucid represents a new approach designed from the ground up to comprehensively address the workflows of investment bankers.

Pellucid can generate the supporting materials that you need to make insightful decks in seconds, wherever you are.

Senior Full Stack Developer Boulder, CO

We are currently looking to hire several Senior Full Stack Developers. We want people who know JavaScript, CSS and the JVM well beyond the syntax and into many of their idioms, patterns and advanced libraries. On the JavaScript side, we make heavy use of promises and modules; on the CSS side, we make use of transitions and tools for precompilation; on the JVM side we use Scala and we’re looking for Scala developers or strong Java developers looking to learn Scala.

Our environment is full of interesting and intelligent people, and we’re looking for similarly high caliber developers to join us. We've got a PhD from Oxford with deep roots in category theory, as well as contributors to the Play Framework and an iteratee-based MongoDB driver for Scala (http://reactivemongo.org/). We strongly emphasize open source development and have already released a Scala library for Datomic (http://pellucidanalytics.github.com/datomisca/). We have several other open source projects in the works, including a promise-based JavaScript library for high performance UI in native iOS applications. Our software stack is meant to be 100% non-blocking and our libraries are focused on making that a reality.

You would be working on a product that will have a major impact on investment banking workflows, especially with respect to financial visualization and analytics, through automation as well as fluid and intuitive UX. Even though we're focused on the finance sector and many on our team come from banking, we maintain a startup feel, but are well funded so neither pay nor job security is an issue. We offer four weeks of vacation, brand new Macbook Pros, and 30 inch monitors. We also do hack days and make strong efforts to include interesting technologies into our daily work.

Desired Experience:

  • Five or more years of experience developing web applications
  • Experience turning comps and wireframes into code
  • Experience building mobile applications
  • Undergraduate or masters degree with impressive academic results and a solid knowledge base across computer science

Desired Skills:

  • Strong HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills
  • Extensive experience working on the JVM
  • Strong working knowledge of AWS
  • Experience with unix and git

Senior Front End Developer Boulder, CO

We have several Senior Front End Development positions open. We're looking for people who know JavaScript well beyond the syntax and into the many of the idioms and patterns, like promises and the Modules pattern. We’re looking for people who know CSS well beyond changing fonts and text colors. We use some of the more advanced CSS3 features, like CSS transitions, and we’d expect a good candidate to have used those features too.

Our environment is full of interesting and intelligent people, and we’re looking for high caliber people to join us. To give you an idea of where that is, we've got a PhD from Oxford with deep roots in category theory; we've got contributors to playframework (https://github.com/playframework/play); contributors to a MongoDB driver for Scala (http://reactivemongo.org/); we're developing our own open source library for Datomic (http://pellucidanalytics.github.com/datomisca/), and we've got two other open source projects in the works (not open yet), including a JavaScript library for UI and a non-blocking AWS library. Our software stack is meant to be 100% non-blocking, and our libraries are focused on making that a reality.

In general I think we can all agree that banking is marred by horrid UX and UI. We're building an application to fix some of that, and make a major impact on the way investment bankers work through not only automation, but fluid and intuitive UX. And even though we come from banking, the environment at Pellucid has a startup feel, but we're well funded so pay and job security aren't issues. We offer four weeks of vacation, brand new Macbook Pros, and 30 inch monitors. We do hack days and make strong efforts to include interesting technologies into our daily work.

Desired Experience:

  • Five or more years of experience developing web applications
  • Experience turning comps and wireframes into code
  • Experience building mobile applications
  • Undergraduate or masters degree with impressive academic results and a solid knowledgebase across computer science

Desired Skills:

  • Strong HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills

  • Strong working knowledge of JavaScript
  • Experience with unix and git
