  • Primary focus throughout the day is on researching and implementing trading ideas.
  • Before market open, check that all required data and related processes are ready for the trading day.
  • During market hours, sporadically monitor behavior and performance of strategies.

 

 

Requirements

 

  • Quantitative background - includes degrees in Mathematics, Statistics, Econometrics, Financial Engineering, Operations Research, Computer Science and Physics
  • Programming proficiency at least one major programming or scripting language (e.g. C++, Java, Python)
  • 1-2 years experience working within a trading environment developing systematic trading strategies
  • Strong communication skills and ability to work well with colleagues across multiple regions
