Radix on campus July 5 and 6

Radix is a research-driven trading startup (~35 people) led by Michael Rauchman (former CTO and lead architect of GETCO), and Ben Blander (UChicago math PhD and former head of Citadel's high-frequency group). 

Over the past two seasons, we've added 12 graduating students from Princeton, Harvard, UPenn, MIT, Columbia, and UChicago, and we’re excited to expand our efforts to Waterloo!

Having a technologist as an equal partner in the firm gives us an appreciation and understanding of how much impact technologists can have to the bottom line, so we're excited to throw a ton of responsibility at new grads, provide complete access to our entire stack, mentorship from industry leading technologists, and top tier compensation. 

We’re visiting campus next week (Wednesday, July 5 and Thursday, July 6) to meet students interested in full-time opportunities in 2018 and beyond (even if you're already committed to fall and winter internships).

Below is when we’re available to meet, followed by more info about Radix. If you’d like to join for coffee or a meal, contact Quentin with some times you’re available.

about RADIX TRADING
------------------------------
Radix Trading is a research-driven, proprietary trading startup (~35 people) in Chicago led by Michael Rauchman and Ben Blander.

> Michael Rauchman (https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-rauchman-39a04834) - formerly GETCO's CTO and lead architect, head of Americas equities, and global head of ForEx. As a hands-on leader Michael was instrumental in the development of many trading strategies as well as the underlying architecture and code.

> Ben Blander - former head of Citadel’s high frequency group and a key contributor in growing their P&L from $75 million in 2005 to $1.15 billion in 2008 (Source: http://www.cnbc.com/id/39099331)  Previously Ben earned a PhD in Math from the University of Chicago.

We’re building a new type of trading firm dedicated to research through open, collaborative innovation. 

We're looking to add new graduates as Software Engineers: Your goal is to enhance alpha generation and improve the research infrastructure through technology innovation. You’ll also be expected to have a strong interest in understanding and contributing to our trading strategies.

WHY TRADING? 
------------------------------
If you want to work on cutting-edge technology to solve really tough problems, while getting near-immediate feedback on your best ideas, the trading industry is hard to beat. Every day we’re competing with some of the smartest, most driven people in the world trying to take your money -- and if you don’t stay at the very top of your game in research, technology, and economics, they will.

And while the highly-publicized wave of high-frequency or “flash” trading based on sheer speed of execution might have reached its limit, we see continued opportunities with our strategy of using statistical research to outsmart the competition.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
