Human Resources Analyst

A quantitative analyst is needed to join a small group of the firm’s experts in trading.  The team is part of the firm’s global trading division.  We are at the forefront of the firm’s industry-leading initiatives to apply technology, quantitative analysis and data-driven methods to its execution process.  We are simultaneously quantitative analysts, applied statisticians, trading economists, and data scientists.

The team leverages its analysis of the firm’s trading to inform decision-making at both the highest levels of the firm and at the very finest detail.  The work requires deep understanding of markets and modern electronic trading as well as familiarity with traditional business practices.  The group’s mandate is broadly to optimize the firm’s execution by evaluating trading choices, both strategic and tactical, and helping to design better alternatives. The group’s focus is to build the firm’s capabilities primarily in global cash equities but also in global multi-asset futures, listed options and FX. The group’s responsibilities are global.  We work closely with the firm’s global head of execution services and the three central trading desks (Asia, US and Europe).

We consult, advise, and assist the firm’s traders and portfolio managers to improve their trading.  We collaborate with the firm’s technologists to enhance trading systems and build new products.  We maintain working relationships with our sell-side broker partners to help with the evaluation and design of their algorithms and other trading services.

  • Scientific education, preferably degree(s) in statistics, mathematics, or computer science
  • Understanding of the basic principles of statistical inference
  • Strong programming skills and experience essential
  • Proficiency with basic tools (Unix, Windows, Excel) essential
  • Familiarity with databases and experience with  KDB/Q preferred
  • Familiarity with data-analysis tools—both statistical and visual (Tableau etc) helpful
