It's not just any old corporate treasury job: Google has openings for bond traders and analysts to achieve excess returns from the Internet giant's vast cash holdings.
While it's routine for financial firms to hire technology whizzes, a high-tech firm advertising for traders is noteworthy. Especially when it's Google, which consistently tops the favorite-employer surveys for both new MBAs and new Ph.D holders.
Postings on Google's careers site include trader of foreign government bonds, portfolio analyst for Google's U.S. government bond portfolio, and a portfolio analyst for agency MBS, according to ClusterStock. The openings are based in Mountain View, Calif., where the company is headquartered.
The foreign government bond trader role requires at least five years relevant experience and skill with Bloomberg and trading/portfolio systems. The posting also says a CFA charter holder or candidate is preferred.
