Python (backtrader/zipline) and Interactive Brokers

Looking for someone:

1) with good knowledge creating backtestings (walk forward/ periodic optimization) in Python Backtrader (or other open source quant trading python library),

2) can start working immediately,

3) can work on a daily basis for the next few days until completion of this short project

4) has hands-on experience in the futures markets

This is phase 1 of what I am building, so timely & good quality delivery means more work on the way. Comments, compartmentalized code, and piece-by-piece delivery. Phase 2 (not this work) will include Deep Learning, so candidates need to ensure that what is being built will easily be combined with work in Tensorflow.

This is not research, just needs good working knowledge of the Backtrader/Zipline packages. I will provide a simple strategy in full detail, someone with experience will need only a few hours of work.

For the interview, you will show a trading strategy you have implemented using Python Backtrader that executes trades to IB. Custom code to be avoided.
