Role Description

We're in the middle of adding automated stock selection to our equity research platform. In practice, this means building forward looking, cross sectional equity factor models. We're looking for creative quantitative analysts to develop equity factors and perform ad hoc analysis. Candidates can expect ownership of projects from day 1 and significant autonomy to execute on their own factor ideas. The ideal candidate will have some experience and opinions on factor models, experience evaluating, backtesting, and validating alpha signals, as well as an interest in traditional fundamental analysis (and how quantitative analysis might aid it).

Candidates should be familiar with key concepts in empirical finance (particularly the literature on factor models) and should be comfortable programming in R and SQL. 

Required:

  • R programming experience (Experience with Python ok if willing to learn R)
  • SQL (any flavor)
  • Undergraduate degree in math, statistics, economics, or finance from top undergrad
  • 0-6 years' work experience in a similar role
  • Knowledge and interest in equity research and/or fundamental investing a plus
  • Knowledge of alpha signals and factor models a plus

 

 


All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply by submitting their resume as an MS word document including a cover letter with a summary of relevant qualifications, highlighting clearly any special or relevant experience.


Please Note: All inquiries will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. Your resume will not be submitted to any client company without your prior knowledge and consent.
