With a track record of impressive success and profitability stretching decades, my client is global leading options market maker/proprietary trading firm. They have positioned themselves at the forefront of financial markets, by adopting a dynamic, innovative and collaborative approach to systematic trading across a variety of products and strategies. Off the back of their market making success they have launched a new hedge fund business which is already performing exceptionally well. This really is the optimal point in time to be considering joining them for the next phase of their journey!


With access to their state of the art platform and the support of world-class engineers, you will focus on developing statistical and machine learning methods for a number of projects – including pricing and accurately predicting/forecasting future market movements. For proprietary reasons I can’t disclose full details here, but can over a call. This hire is integral to the continued success of the firm, and they are offering the opportunity to learn from the best of the best and kickstart a successful, lucrative career in quantitative finance.


Culturally this firm is great and they put a huge emphasis on their employee’s wellbeing vs other companies in quantitative finance – think lots of employee perks, flexible working, no late night/weekend calls and no firing for underperformance (they would rather move someone to another area of the business than let them go).


Please apply if you possess the following:


  • PhD in Statistics, Computer Science, Machine Learning, Physics etc. from a top school.
  • Strong track record of machine learning/statistical research in an applied setting (does not need to be finance).
  • Strong Python skills.
  • An interest in developing a successful and lucrative career in quantitative finance.
  • New York Location
  • PermanentJob Type
  • Competitive salary
