Top systematic quantitative investment manager is looking to hire an exceptional Junior Portfolio Researcher with a strong quantitative background to improve and create trading models and strategies whilst working in collaboration with engineers and senior leaders across the company.
This will entail working on a variety of trading strategies and research projects, with the opportunity to conduct independent research and originate research topics over time. In addition, given the small size of the team this will also involve running risk reports, analyzing trades and portfolios based on historical market data, and executing various experiments.
This represents a great opportunity for someone in the early stages of their careers, perhaps with finance industry internships or up to 2-3 years experience in an investment bank or buy-side trading firm, to challenge themselves in an ambitious firm shaped by collaboration and meritocracy.
What we’re looking for:
Compensation is unprecedented and contingent on experience. This is a full-time position based in Chicago, IL.
