Job Description

I'm partnering with a boutique quant risk advisory firm looking for a talented, ambitious, knowledgable recent college grad. Individuals with 1-2 years of experience would be highly relevant for this Quantitative Research and Sales role. You must have a passion for the markets, an outstanding work ethic, and strong quantitative skills. In addition, the candidate should thrive in a small team environment, be highly detail oriented, and a great team player.

This is an environment that encourages high level analytical thinking, teamwork, and inspires passionate employees to work hard and pursue personal growth.

Skill Set/Experience Required:

  • Knowledge of derivatives/options (cross-asset or equities-specific) strongly preferred
  • Knowledge of Python and/or at least one other programming language strongly preferred (e.g. R, Java, etc.)
  • Additionally, familiarity with market data and statistical packages/API are a plus (e.g. Bloomberg API, Pandas, NumPy, SciPy, etc.)
  • Ability to be a self-starter (e.g. manage own sales pipeline and report updates to senior management, take on projects, etc.) is a must
  • Extremely strong communication (both verbal and writing) skills required
  • Candidate must have a strong ability to multitask and prioritize tasks appropriately
  • Candidate must demonstrate a passionate interest in financial markets and a 'can-do' attitude
  • Undergraduate discipline in a related field (e.g. Finance, Mathematics, Economics) preferred

Desireable Skills:

  • Series 7 & 63 required (or willingness to take exams within a reasonable amount of time after starting)
  • CFA Charter path or advanced degree a plus, but certainly not required

Individuals looking for a foot in the door within sales and trading within a quantitative level, as well as work for a boutique quant risk addvisory firm, this is the perfect opportunity and alternative for you.
