Job Description
The Firm - is an award-winning quantitative investment manager. We run a number of absolute return, alternative strategies focused on systematic trading across liquid equity, futures and foreign exchange markets globally.

The Culture - We reward people based on merit and excellence, not necessarily on experience. We avoid the bureaucracy of larger organisations, and keep our management structures flat. Decisions are made efficiently; changes are implemented quickly.

People who work here enjoy a culture of trust, innovation and scientific rigour. We have some really creative, super-smart people here; all of whom would be embarrassed to be described that way.

It's a friendly, open place where people are motivated because they enjoy what they're doing.
