SIG’s Quantitative Research Associates hold advanced degrees from diverse fields including mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering. Our quants apply their problem solving expertise to real-time trading opportunities within the capital markets.
At SIG, you will work alongside traders and software engineers to develop, test, and implement predictive models, pricing models, and technical tools. You will utilize your quantitative ability and technical skill set to design strategies essential to SIG’s trading performance.
You will attend classes taught by experienced traders to learn about capital markets, decision science, and game theory. This theoretical training is reinforced through mentoring provided by successful quants at SIG who will help you bridge the gap between your academic experience and the trading world.
The goal of our 10-week summer programprogramme is to give you real-world working experiences that apply quantitative research to the firm’s trading activity. You will work on essential projects for the firm while gaining a better understanding of how we approach the markets.
Our quant interns participate in educational programsprogrammes customized to their unique position at SIG. Classes provide an introduction to the products SIG trades and the finance industry. They evolve into challenging quantitative courses that expose the application of quantitative theory to real-world problems that we face as contributors to the US open markets. Interns are also mentored by a Quantitative Researcher at SIG while spending time on our trade floor gaining hands-on experience. The education programprogramme is designed to advance knowledge of our business, current industry topics, and the application of quantitative theories in finance.
