Weiss Asset Management is seeking self-motivated software engineering co-ops to design, develop, and maintain large-scale high-impact investment and operations systems.
At Weiss, technology is a core aspect of our business. In order to support our investment edge, we often find the need to develop proprietary systems as necessary.

Our emphasis on hiring great people and building robust, extensible systems allows us to keep our team small and flexible, minimizing overhead and maximizing individual impact and freedom.
