Illumon is building a team of world-class software engineers to commercialize big data technology developed within a hedge fund.  We are a well-funded spinoff with offices in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and New York City, New York.  We are a small crew with big goals, and we are in the process of growing our core team.  This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and to influence the firm’s direction.

At Illumon, we recognize that a dozen Salieris could never produce a Mozart masterpiece.  Similarly, a dozen average developers could never produce the masterpiece of an elite software developer.  We believe that a small team of elite developers is far better than an army of average developers.  We only hire the best, and we reward accordingly.  

Illumon is a meritocracy, not a bureaucracy.  Our priority is for you to focus on what you love and do best: crafting great code.
