Our quantitative research team works with traders to develop and test automated trading strategies and data analysis tools, refining traders’ ideas into quantitatively precise questions.
Quantitative researchers apply their mathematical skills in areas such as probability and statistics, stochastic processes, machine learning, numerical analysis and optimization to the construction of trading models. In addition, the team collaborates with software developers to develop and implement computer-based trading systems that successfully execute sophisticated large-scale strategies independent of human interaction. At SIG Dublin, quantitative researchers work directly with traders in a front office environment, and are closely involved with monitoring and refining the production strategies. The team also work on challenging problems in the modelling and measurement of our trading risks, including for regulatory purposes.
SIG's quantitative researchers are skilled mathematicians, physicists, statisticians, computer scientists, economists and engineers, typically possessing a PhD and/or significant work experience in related fields.
This is a superb opportunity for a highly numerate individual with a keen interest in the financial markets to gain exposure within a true trading environment.
What we're looking for
- A PhD in a numerate or technical discipline.
- Exceptional quantitative and statistical understanding.
- Very strong attention to detail.
- Good general computer knowledge and strong programming ability. Python/Matlab an advantage.
- Strong communication skills, both verbal and written.
