We are seeking equally empirical and imaginative thinkers to join our team. Scientists in the truest sense, our quantitative research associates navigate the full research process. You will explore a breadth of challenges, in pursuit of a mission that entails:

  • Developing trading strategies, from idea generation and data collection to analysis and model creation;
  • Applying quantitative techniques and market intuition to large, often novel or unconventional, datasets and cultivate areas of expertise along the way;
  • Advancing existing initiatives and opening opportunities to pursue new, previously unexplored research topics.

Requirements Include:

  • A bachelor’s, master’s, or PhD degree in statistics, mathematics, physics, computer science, or other technical and quantitative disciplines from a top university.
  • Intermediate programming skills (Java, C, or C++) & scripting languages (Perl, Python, UNIX shell).
  • Experience tackling in-depth research projects.
  • Solid analytical and organizational skills.
  • The ability to communicate complex ideas clearly.
  • Although industry knowledge or experience is preferred, we will certainly consider exceptional candidates without a background in finance.
