Quant Developer | Quantitative Financial Analytics

New York City, NY

Compensation range: $150,000-200,000+ total & benefits

We recently partnered with a very innovative Quantitative Financial Analytics firm located in the heart of Manhattan. Their growth in the last few years has been extraordinary and as a result they have managed to diversify their analytics platform offering to span new asset classes for their clients. Given this continued growth and success they are now in search of PhD graduates with a passion for quantitative finance and technology to join the team in continuing to build cutting edge analytics software.

This is an opportunity to work at a tech-driven quantitative firm that is a trusted partner of some the world's largest and most prestigious asset managers and investment banks. The team is growing, but its flat structure and collaborative culture will still allow you the chance to work directly with the CTO and other senior individuals in a team environment that fosters independence and innovation.

The successful candidate will need to have very solid programming skills in C++/Python and a passion for solving complex problems.


  • Work collaborative to develop brand new cutting-edge solutions and platforms to help traders and portfolio managers

  • Contribute to the design efforts by interacting with the team and stakeholders

  • As a technology driven business it's also important to research new technologies and effectively integrate within existing environment


  • PhD in Computer Science/Physics/Mathematics or a quantitative discipline from a top university preferred

  • Proficiency in Object Oriented Programming (C++/Python preferred)

  • Strong troubleshooting ability and excellent attention to detail

  • Motivated self learner with the desire to succeed within a growing team

  • Prior development experience preferred

If interested, please apply with a copy of your resume and we will be in touch soon!
