As a Quantitative Researcher, you will join a group of PhD-level researchers dedicated to the data-driven development and improvement of our trading strategies at SIG. Our quants apply their mathematical thinking, analysis of complex datasets, and problem-solving skills to create solutions in today’s competitive and constantly changing financial market landscape. Our team comes from a variety of backgrounds; before joining us at SIG, many of our researchers were recognized for their accomplishments through fellowships, grants, academic competitions, and publications in refereed research journals.
Quants spend most of their day on the trading floors, seated side-by-side with traders and technologists. This enables them to be part of the conversations that shape our day-to-day trading activities and transform quantitative methods into trading opportunities. Since our researchers are working in real-time, you have the ability to quickly see the impact of your work.
What we're looking for
- PhD students in the last year of their program or postdoctoral researchers in a quantitative field of study
- Solid, analytical problem-solving skills
- Strong, practical computing skills; a specific language proficiency is less important than your ability to get computers to accomplish tasks efficiently and reliably
- Experience working on in-depth research projects
- Finance experience is a plus, but not required
