An opportunity to work full-cycle within a highly skilled team, where everyone is considered a Quant Developer.

Company –

Join a company that looks to break the mould when it comes to finance. Rather than red tape, crisp suits and the long hours associated typically with a hedge fund, their heart is as a technology business that just happens to be a systematic hedge fund.

They are a close-knit team of exceptionally talented, kind and friendly engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists, who are building cutting-edge technology in-house to capture, analyse and monetise the growing wealth of global data.

Role –

Rather than separating the roles of quant and developer, it is a unified team of quant developers. Those who are more quant-focused can program (not just R and Matlab) and those that consider themselves a pure programmer have the option to work on quant projects if desired. All of the Quant Developers, regardless of background, program extensively and have the opportunity to tackle interesting problems at the cutting edge of financial technology.
