Quantitative Analyst for successful Algo-Trading company

Do you want to learn from a highly skilled team that uses cutting edge techniques in Machine Learning and Algorithmic Trading? On behalf of our client in the financial sector, Accuro is looking for a quantitative analyst that will help them grow further.               

Your work

Your work will involve turning massive data sets of financial information into mathematical models that accurately predict movements in the equity markets. In doing so you will:

  • Develop and calibrate machine learning models ranging from simple regressions to state-of-the-art deep neural networks,
  • Seek out and manage new data sources for our models,
  • Automate monitoring and benchmarking of the trading strategies.

You will see rapid validation of your work and experience short feedback cycles, where going from inception to deployment can be a matter of hours. There is no red tape and no salespeople and there is ample room for creativity.

The team

The team is a tight-knit modelling team consisting of seven passionate analysts – five PhDs and two MSc with expertise in statistical analysis, mathematical modelling and machine learning. They enjoy collaboration and are more than willing to guide you when in need. You will be working alongside a team of software developers and a team of economists who implement and conceive the trading models with us. All team members write code and understand that a seemingly trivial change can require a lot of work, and vice versa.
