It is an international hedge fund and quantitative investment management firm that consists of researchers, portfolio managers, and technologists. It focuses on developing high-quality financial strategies across a variety of asset classes in global markets, utilising a proprietary research platform and risk management process.
About the role:
It is a new headcount in a newly established global Quant team.
It is not a pure developer role; together with four other managers across the world(USA, India, Europe), the team is positioned as the technical solution advisor and communicator to bridge the gap between researchers and programmers.
The ideal candidate should have at least 5-year experiences in the quant finance space, has thorough understandings of the industry; familiar with python, algorithm, machine learning, data structure, so can provide effective technical advice to researchers when they encounter difficulties at work; can communicate with programmers and guide them to work on relative projects as needed.
To add up some colour to this role:
This role can be dealing with any kinds of questions or requests from quantitative researchers, which could be data related, python related that requires coding, or infrastructure-related like speed up simulation with improved infrastructure, etc... The role will be running projects, so a typical day of the role can depend on which project s/he's currently on. Aside from working closely with his/her team, s/he might also work more closely with research/tech teams to resolve different projects.
