Our client is an extremely well backed ultra HFQ firm who are looking to build an exceptional team before launching in early 2013. They personally have an incredibly strong track record building some of Europe’s leading HFQ trading businesses and have a network within the sector that is second to none so the infrastructure and necessary contacts are first class.
They will be an ultra high frequency fund ie 10’s of 1000’s of trades per day, and although they want to be in the top 20 fastest firms out there they are very confident in their strategies and do not want/need to be involved in an arms race. They are therefore looking to hire people with a similar confidence and track record with their own strategies to build with them a highly profitable business.
The team behind the fund are well regarded and are privately funded by one of the partners so have the financial clout that is needed to be successful in this industry.
At this stage we are only looking to speak to people with a proven track record in the high frequency trading space. Successful candidates will have at least 2 years high frequency trading experience, the ability to adapt and innovate as required and strong C++ programming skills.
You will most likely already be working in a high frequency hedge fund or trading group and want to be a part of an organisation from the start and reap the true rewards that your hard work and strategies deserve.
This is an exceptional opportunity for a proven trader/researcher to join an organisation that has all of the pieces in place to be a true force in this field.
Please do not hesitate to apply to organise an initial discussion regarding the full details of the firm and opportunity on offer.
