My client is a research and technology driven, proprietary trading start-up with offices in NY, Chicago and Singapore - set up by top HFT Trading alumni.
They are dedicated to collaboration through novel machine learning and statistical methodologies. Their culture of honesty and cutting edge technology enables fast turnaround from idea inception to execution, and continuous enrichment of their cutting-edge proprietary technology and automated research platform. Having developed a robust core trading platform, infrastructure and a profitable core team they are now looking to expand and hire for "Desks" for more Independent Quant Traders or teams who want to build their own desk and receive a market leading % pay out.
