Risk and Research

We at iRage are an agile, young bunch. You will get to solve some extremely challenging engineering problems and shape the future of the fast paced Algo-Trading industry while working alongside other exceptional programmers, quants and traders.

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. At this moment, we already have an extremely long pipeline of research ideas for existing strategies (ideas which are waiting for the right candidate to solve and should have big PnL implications).

As a Quantitative Researcher at iRage you will be involved in analysing market behaviour from both micro and macro perspective by:

  • Analysing hundreds of gigabytes of data to ascertain micro behavioural patterns (at the microsecond time frame) to explore potential opportunities and strategies

  • Building automated trading signals 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

  • Developing mathematical models to solve difficult stochastic problems

Required Skill Set

  • Adept awareness of financial markets and fundamentals

  • Strong logical & quantitative aptitude
