The Experience

Research

As a quantitative trader, researching new strategy and alpha ideas will be a large part of your daily responsibilities. Each trader will be given a wide range of freedom to pursue his or her direction. The environment will be similar to academia in that you will consult many academic papers and textbooks to find inspiration for new ideas. Obviously, ideas that appear in published papers will not be profitable, otherwise they would be in papers in the first place, but they are usually a good starting point or source of new ideas. Here are some example papers for you to get a feel for the day-to-day research topics.

Upside

Traders will be offered extremely generous profit-sharing percentages of their strategy's trading revenue. If a trader is successful, this opportunity is tremendous upside potential.

Entrepreneurship

Each trader has the opportunity to form a trading group within the firm. The trader will become the Team Lead, recruit his or her team members, manage the team's research and development directions, and decide compensation allocations to his or her team. This is an entrepreneurship opportunity to start a company within a larger company.
