We are working with an elite, growing Hedge Fund who are looking to hire a Senior Fixed Income Quant in London to focus on interest rate derivative modelling. This role will involve working very closely with Senior PMs (including the CIO) and so are looking for an experienced, high calibre quant with strong experience with linear interest rate products. You will play a highly visible role in the growth of the business, working on greenfield projects that will significant impact fund performance so exceptional modelling and programming skills are required. Outstanding candidates should get in touch for a confidential conversation.

This is a senior quant role within an established, lean and high calibre quant team and a wide range of quant work – with a skew towards modelling related projects (i.e. not infrastructure / dev focused work). 

Due to the focus of the wider PM team, there is a strong preference for this person to come from a fixed income background and, specifically, with a deep understanding of linear interest rate derivative models. This role is with an established firm but one that has clear plans for significant expansion, with the quant team playing an integral part to this growth. The quant team are considered a vital and integral part to fund performance and are highly valued throughout the business, and the team have a strong relationship with the most senior people in the business. This is not a fund where the quants are side-lined! As the fund are growing a lot of the work being done by the quant team is greenfield and quants who are able to take initiative and who are able to critically evaluate process will be of interest.

Our client is keen for candidates to have very strong programming skills in Python along with one of C++ / C# / Java. Please note that whilst there is a requirement for this individual to have exceptional programming skills, this is not a dev or quant dev role – rather a more holistic (front-office) desk quant / strategist with strong development skills.  

This is an exceptional opportunity to join a high performing, growing and collegiate hedge fund in a role with significant responsibility.

Required

  • 8 years plus experience as a Front Office Interest Rate Derivatives Quant in a top tier Investment Bank or Hedge Fund
  • Deep expertise in linear interest rate derivatives modelling
  • Very strong programming skills in C++/C#/Java AND Python
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to think objectively and plan strategically

This is a unique opportunity to join a top hedge fund in a role that combines being able to play a significant role in shaping a business whilst remaining hands on with a range of quant work,
