Interested in using your problem-solving and programming skills to discover new trading signals? Want to have an immediate impact, translating ideas and conversations into profitable trading strategies?

SIG is looking for someone who is hungry to dig into large data sets and find patterns within the financial markets. As a Quantitative Strategist, you will play a hybrid role between systematic trading and quantitative research, solving real-world problems and making a direct impact to our business. The successful candidate will be data-driven and detail-oriented, with a strong foundation in statistics and computer science. Quant Strategists are seated at the heart of our trading floor, constantly collaborating with others and continually exploring the dynamic intricacies within the game of trading.

SIG is one of the world’s largest market makers, with a unique approach to trading, technology, and research. While this background puts us at the top of our game, what really makes us successful is our quantitative approach to decision making and the collaboration between our employees. 

In the role you will:

  • Monitor the performance of automated trading strategies
  • Sit side-by-side with traders and other strategists to brainstorm new ideas and iterate upon existing projects
  • Write code to analyse market data across multiple exchanges
  • Design blueprints for new trading algorithms
  • Work alongside technologists to put plans into production
  • Contribute to the development of new software systems for trading and analytics
  • Apply tools in probability, statistics, stochastic processes, numerical analysis and optimisation
  • Maintain and extend existing quantitative pricing models


What we’re looking for:

  • PhD* or Master’s degree in a quantitative field such as Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Operations Research, or Economics
  • Strong quantitative, logical reasoning, and analytical skills
  • Exceptional communication skills in a fast-paced environment
  • Excellent programming skills; experience with Python and/or C++ is an advantage
  • A collaborative mindset with a relentless desire for improvement
  • Demonstrated interest in strategic games and/or competitive activities
  • An interest in financial markets is a large plus. Trading experience is not required!


Interview Process

Apply -> Online Assessments -> Recruiter Interview -> Quant Interview -> Final On-site Interview -> Job Offer!

*PhD students applying to this role will be automatically considered for the Quantitative Researcher position. There is no need to apply separately for both positions.
