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.
