Site Reliability Engineer

Permanent Position – Toronto

About the Company

Riskfuel is pioneering the use of deep neural networks to accelerate the proprietary financial models used to calculate the values and the risk sensitivities of the financial instruments held by capital markets and insurance firms. Given the size of these portfolios and the many different risk sensitivities required, these models are run in large, overnight batch processes spread over thousands of servers. Riskfuel dramatically accelerates the process by constructing functionally equivalent models using DNNs. The Riskfuel models are a million times faster so that what once took all night to run can now be completed in seconds. With Riskfuel models, you get real-time valuation and risk management … and a massive reduction in the compute workload, saving money and reducing the firm’s environmental footprint.

We are doing exciting cutting-edge research and our technology is winning major industry awards. The work is varied, interesting and fast paced, with lots of opportunity for you to make impactful contributions. We are looking for talented individuals to work and learn alongside colleagues who are leaders in the field.
