Research Interns – Expressions of Interest

Performance Engineers are responsible for the success of our trading systems. You will develop hypotheses and test them experimentally under real-world conditions and constraints. You'll direct development efforts and build tools to monitor and optimise our low-latency trading strategies. You’ll work with cutting-edge technology; including custom FPGA hardware, microwaves, and software. You'll have access to terabytes of systems and network capture data to analyse, process and discover hidden patterns. You’ll reverse engineer systems to understand how they work and how to utilise them more effectively.

Quantitative Researchers are responsible for the accuracy of our core pricing models and work closely with trading to statistically analyse and predict all facets of derivative pricing. You’ll both work to create and improve pricing models and other quantitative elements of our automated trading systems, as well as perform extensive analysis on our vast arrays of data to directly improve our trading strategies. Researchers and Software Engineers on this team work together closely with our Traders. They find solutions to problems, test those solutions with historical parameters and market data, and then drive changes to our trading system that will improve our ability to make successful trades.
