Job Description

Company develops and deploys systematic financial strategies across a variety of asset classes
and global markets. We seek to produce high-quality predictive signals (Alphas) through our
proprietary research platform to employ financial strategies focused on exploiting market inefficiencies.
Our teams work collaboratively to drive the production of Alphas and financial strategies – the
foundation of a sustainable, global investment platform.
Company’s success is built on a culture that pairs academic sensibility with accountability for results.
Employees are encouraged to think openly about problems, balancing intellectualism and practicality.
Great ideas come from anyone, anywhere. Employees are encouraged to challenge conventional thinking
and possess a mindset of continuous improvement. That’s a key ingredient in remaining a leader in any
industry.
Our goal is to hire the best and the brightest quantitative researchers. We value intellectual horsepower first
and foremost, and people who demonstrate an exceptional talent. There is no roadmap to future success, so
we need people who can help us create it. Our collective intelligence will drive us there.

The Role: Research is at the core of Company. Through rigorous exploration and unconstrained
thinking about how to apply data to the financial markets, our researchers are in constant search of new
Alphas. We strive to understand data in ways our competitors don’t believe is possible. Researchers at
Company employ tested processes seeking to identify high-quality predictive signals that we believe
are undiscovered by the wider market. These signals are mathematical expressions of data that are
used as inputs in our quantitative models.
Company is seeking an exceptional individual to join the firm as a Quantitative Researcher. The
person must have a strong understanding of the investment research process to create computer-based
models that seek to predict movements of global financial markets. While prior finance experience is not
required, a successful candidate must possess a strong interest in learning about finance and global
markets. Candidates will have a research scientist mind-set; be a self-starter, a creative and persevering
deep thinker who is motivated by unsolved challenges.

Its Impact: As we pursue our goal of creating new Alphas, we need researchers who will lead us there.
Company’s unique investment platform is a leader amongst its peers and the methodology we employ
is cutting edge. We desire people who will help us in our relentless pursuit to succeed.
