Revolut's quant fund is hiring from Morgan Stanley
Revolut is known for hiring junior staff into senior-style roles and Storonsky's VC fund seems to have a similar strategy.
It's just hired Kyra Cheng Jiaying from the EMEA technology team at Morgan Stanley in London. Kyra was only at Morgan Stanley two years and was still an analyst. What sets her apart is another two years spent at VC firm Alma Angels and that she continued investing during her Morgan Stanley tenure.
The Singapore native, who studied at LSE is something of a break from Quantum Light's hiring norm. Storonsky is of Russian origin and the primary source of Quantum Light's talent is the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. The school is one the top universities for engineering talent, particularly C++ developers.
Recent hires from MIPT include chief of AI Andrew Stepanov who joined in February and senior data analyst Aleksandr Proskurin in November. The latter also taught a course on algorithms and data structures there.
