Software Engineer

Location:New York, NY, United States (Anywhere)

Education level: College/University
Education field: Engineering
Years of experience: Less than 2 years

Hi, my name is Mike. I am writing to express my interest in Drakkar Capital. To introduce myself, I am a Software Engineering student graduating this December and am now searching for the right place to begin my career. I have had several intern and part-time experiences in the past, some of which are in larger organizations while others smaller labs. I would like to explore, learn and develop myself at the same time making meaningful contributions to the team. I have always found Investment to be an interesting subject and it would be very exciting for me as well to dive deeper into the field rather than causal trade simulation and reading books.
I have over 6 years of experience in programming with a wide range of exposures to various languages and technologies Including Java and Python. I am a fast, independent learner with many teamwork experiences. Last year five of us have started a project to implement an FDA electronic application software and have sold it to a Chinese pharmaceutical consulting firm. My biggest asset is my imagination, my ability to quickly adapt and my willingness to learn from mistakes.
My key experiences and expertise include :
The ability to work independently and collaboratively
A solid object oriented programming background
Extensive experience with Linux and command line
Experience with relational databases such as MySQL
Experience with various programming paradigms, languages and tools which allow me to quickly learn and adapt to development needs.
Working and communicating in teams of different sizes is one of my greatest strength. In addition to the startup experience, I have also organized teams to participate in various Hackathons and have managed several small projects that consist of four to six members.
Learning has always been something I enjoy both at work and during my leisure. In the past, I have taught myself Python, javascript as well as Android and Google Glass development. recently, I am taking an online class related to Data Mining. Learning to dance has also been a big part of my life. I have been learning Salsa for 13 month now and three weeks ago I had my first Salsa performance (It was a exciting experience!).
In my opinion teamwork, creativity, and the ability to learn quickly are essential traits at Squarepoint . Hence, I believe my abilities makes me a strong candidate that fits your company.
Thank you kindly for your time and consideration. I am eager to hear from you!
Mike Chen
