The firm operates a relaxed culture more like a Tech Start-up. For those more experienced Researchers/Traders there is the prospect of leading a small team and potential fast-track partnership programme.
A typical day will involve applying meticulous statistical analysis to vast quantities of market and financial data to produce predictive trading models. You will run models live on high-performance trading infrastructure, and analyse their daily performance to sustain ongoing profitability. Working in close collaboration with fellow Researchers/Traders, you will research, develop, and test order execution and model training methods to increase trading effectiveness.
