Job Description

Our client is a private Trading Firm that specialises in developing and deploying systematic trading strategies across global futures markets. These strategies are quantitatively based and highly diverse and are supported by a disciplined scientific research process. Teamwork, technology, innovation and intellect are at the core of what they do.

The Role:
We are currently looking for a Quantitative Researcher to add to the Research and Trading teams. The primary task will be to undertake research into the detection and exploitation of robust statistically significant patterns within financial time series data with the aim of developing automated trading and execution strategies. This task has the potential to cover a diverse range of possible trading styles (e.g. High Frequency Trading, statistical arbitrage, short-term price prediction, quantitative macro, systematic risk-premia) and consequently the role will have a broad scope.

About You:
The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field. Alternatively, the applicant will be able to demonstrate substantial relevant domain knowledge and a record of successful achievement in the task of developing quantitatively based automated trading strategies.

For all applicants, competency in software development is essential and a thorough knowledge of one or more of C++, Python, Java, MATLAB or related languages will be required.

Prior knowledge of or experience in finance is not a pre-requisite, however knowledge of or experience in any of the fields of Machine Learning, HFT, statistical arbitrage, short-term price prediction or systematic risk-premia would be highly regarded.

This is an exciting, intellectually challenging and rewarding role for someone with motivation, imagination, and a desire to learn more about the dynamics of financial markets. The work environment is friendly and informal. Applicants should be willing to work closely with other researchers and with I.T. professionals within the company.

Salary will be commensurate with experience. Bonuses are linked to seniority, research performance and trading outcomes.

You must be either an Australian Citizen or Australian Permanent Resident to be considered for this role.
