Our Quantitative Research team works to solve the mathematical "puzzles" SIG encounters every day in the financial marketplace. SIG's strongest Quantitative Research Analysts are our most creative problem solvers. They are forward thinking and curious about the world of finance. In addition to a strong quantitative background, the ability to communicate with team members (our traders, technologists, and business partners) will lead to success in our quant space.
What you will be doing:
You will join the Quantitative Research team that supports our trading across multiple financial products and Asian markets. This team will give you broad exposure to many areas of SIG's business as you collaborate with members of our research, trading, and development teams.
You will be responsible for making our existing trading strategies better by applying your background, experience, and intuition to our data, driving our next steps and contributing to the success of the firm. To do this, you will have access to large data sets, often terabytes of data, containing billions of records daily . To learn what it's like to be a quant, check out a Day in the Life .
