Code Willing, a software company that specializes in quantitative analysis and trading solutions, has officially expanded to New Orleans. We are happy to announce the opening of our second base of operations on St. Charles Avenue located in the New Orleans Garden District.

St. Charles Avenue is a tree-lined boulevard known for its plentiful Southern live oak trees and dozens of historical mansions. It is home to the famous St. Charles Streetcar Line and is one of the chief Mardi Gras parade routes. The facades of Tulane University and Loyola University are both located on St. Charles Avenue.

In addition to our development in New Orleans, our Baton Rouge team is rapidly growing. Since 2014, we have continually expanded our product offerings and have grown our user base. This exponential growth, coupled with the addition of customers, reinforces the growing market interest in quantitative data solutions.

We are actively hiring in both New Orleans and Baton Rouge for developers, software engineers, data scientists and interns with experience with databases, core data and storage systems.
