Role Summary - Quantitative Researcher
A Quantitative Researcher will assist the trading teams in adding new aspects to existing strategies, build new trading strategies, and test/validate hypothesis made by traders.

- Building automated trading signals (in Python, R, C++ etc.) to drive decisions around strategy and its implementation.
- Building engineering solutions to manage the complexity
- Discovering and imitating the logic and thereby automating the process of setting the hundreds of parameters that traders do on a daily basis
- Optimizing current trading strategies to improve the PnL
