Every day, SIG participates in millions of trades on exchanges around the world. Our operations team manages the infrastructure that allows these trades to move forward with speed and accuracy. How do we aggregate and analyze trading data to help make better future decisions? How do we ensure that we correct any trade breaks that would expose the firm to financial risk? How do we constantly improve the efficiency with which we complete the lifecycle of a trade? This is where our Operations Analysts come in.

The Operations Analyst development program will prepare you for a full-time Operations Analyst position at SIG. Throughout the program, you will rotate across various trading desk and business areas at SIG to deepen your understanding of the firm. In addition to providing hands-on experience through daily responsibilities and project work, the program includes classroom training sessions focused on developing company specific knowledge and technical skills to facilitate process optimization. At the end of your rotations, you will be expected to leverage your diverse skill set and knowledge of SIG’s business to maximize your impact as an Operations Analyst. You will be placed on a team that best aligns with your skills, interests, and SIG’s business needs.

We look for people from a variety of backgrounds who have strong problem solving skills and the ability to thrive in a fast paced and dynamic environment. Some of our Operations Analysts come in with a passion for the financial markets, some come in with programming knowledge. All come in with a curiosity and desire to grow and have an impact on SIG’s business.
