My client is looking for a quant to join the Strategist team. In this group, they focus on pricing and risk management of fixed income derivative products, as well as associated asset strategies. In particularm they are looking for someone to work on a large project, implementing pricing, analysis and risk management systems for them.

You will work closely with the trading and structuring team, analyzing trades and asset opportunities. They provide a comprehensive set of risk reports and pricing tools for the team, and are an integral part of the risk management of the firm.

Strategists occupy the intersection of finance, markets, maths, computer science, and programming. Working side by side with the firm's trading, sales, banking and investment management professionals, members of the business unit use their mathematical and scientific training to create financial products, advise clients on transactions, measure risk and identify market opportunities.

In general, they are looking for smart, quantitative, commercial, problem-solving-oriented, "get-things-done" candidates with a proven track record of delivering robust, high-performance software and quantitative analyses and with either experience in financial markets or a keen interest to learn about them.

Experience and Skill

  • Excellent applied programming skills - Java, C, C++ or other major language.
  • Strong communication skills.
  • Judgment -- ability to work on the trading desk under significant time pressure & make trade-critical decisions.
  • Commercial awareness.
  • Enthusiasm, "can-do" attitude, and drive.
  • Knowledge of financial mathematics and stochastic calculus.
