Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2023

What we're up to

Kalshi has launched the first regulated financial exchange that allows people to trade on the anticipated outcome of events. We’re now looking for the right people to help us continue to grow and scale.

Our vision is to allow people to capitalize on their opinions and hedge risks that relate to their everyday lives, from "Will CPI rise more than 0.5% this month?” to "Will 2023 be the hottest year on record?"

We're on a long journey in uncharted territories and are looking for passionate and outlier members excited to embark on this voyage towards building the future of the financial system.

  • Design, implement and deploy statistical models to solve business problems
  • Develop best practices and frameworks for instrumentation and experimentation and communicate those to product engineering teams
  • Participate in setting the strategic direction for data science and analytics for our company

Our tech stack includes Python, SQL, DBT for data analytics and pipelining, pipelining and machine learning, Spark for big data processing, and visualization through Superset. We leverage cloud platforms such as AWS for scalable data storage and computational needs.

Our Culture

We are a group of people who work hard and get things done, and we're looking for more people like that! Meritocracy is at our core, and we value people who take ownership and figure (usually hard) things out. We think of Kalshi as a family bound together by our mission: we believe that this is the best (and most fun!) way to work. Kalshians are, by far, Kalshi's largest asset and we're obsessed with growing and investing in our people.
