We are aggressively building a team of performance driven investment professionals with the goal of scaling into a global hedge fund with world-class research, trading, and investment techniques. As a complement to our active US equities trading program, our firm is committing significant resources to develop automated trading capabilities. We are seeking traders, quantitative researchers, and developers to drive innovation in alpha generation. As an early member of the quantitative research team, your experience and opinions will influence the design and technology used in our research and trading infrastructure. This is a greenfield project. We expect you to come with a plan for developing an automated trading platform and implementing sophisticated execution algorithms, complete with order management and risk controls. You will evaluate historical and realtime data vendors. You will also work on research infrastructure, including a backtesting/simulation framework. You will work side-by-side with traders to codify and automate their trading strategies. You will also collaborate with quantitative analysts to improve and optimize the firm’s strategies. While some of the strategies have intraday hold times, none of them require low-latency execution. Compensation includes a competitive base salary, a relocation package and a guaranteed first-year bonus. Subsequent bonuses are commensurate with performance and team-based contributions, and are eligible for defered payment in order to invest in the fund. This position also includes standard benefits (401(k), health insurance, PTO, etc.)
