High Frequency Trading Mandate- Fastest Growing FX/Crypto Trading House in the World

Location: London   Sectors   

A cryptocurrency and FX trading house are looking to hire a Quantitative Trader for their high frequency trading team. The position can be based in London, New York or Singapore.

The current team, led by the former CIO of a top trading house, is filled with veterans from tier 1 financial institutions (GSR, Tower Research, Citadel) and proven digital asset traders.

This hire will be a key part of the firm’s expansion as they plan to grow their business 5 fold in the next year, having already doubled in size in the last 6 months. You will have ownership of a book, focused on market making and prop trading in Ripple and/or FX. However, given the rapid growth of the firm, they are open to talented individuals, from a HFT background, who are keen to pursue different areas within the digital finance space.

It is the perfect time to be joining the firm, as they are well-established in the digital space while on track for huge growth. The role will offer a highly competitive compensation (formulaic pay-out on PnL) as well as RSUs which have the potential to be extremely lucrative.

Candidates should have:

  • STEM degree or finance degree from a leading university
  • 4+ years in high frequency market making/prop trading, preferably in FX or Crypto
  • Ability to work with quant researchers and developers to collaborate on backtesting and simulating trading strategies
  • Strong technical and coding skills
