About the Position
The quantitative trading internship is a fast-paced, immersive experience. Over the course of the summer, you will be mentored by some of our experienced traders who will teach you about identifying, analyzing, and executing trading strategies, constructing quantitative models, conducting statistical analysis, building trading intuition, and more. In addition to 1-on-1 work with your mentors, you will attend internal classes on various topics and participate in mock trading sessions alongside your co-interns, where we can teach you the broader fundamentals of finance and trading (and how your quantitative problem-solving skills fit in). The work can be challenging and intense, but we want our employees, interns included, to have a healthy work-life balance. Interns work approximately 9-hour days, Monday through Friday. We encourage our interns to enjoy their weekends in London and to take advantage of what the city has to offer.
We are looking for people who have a strong quantitative mind and enjoy working collaboratively to solve challenging problems in a practical setting. Prior knowledge of finance or economics is not expected or required. Experience with particular programming languages is also not required, although generally being comfortable programming in your language of choice is a plus.
Please note that while we're working remotely right now, we're hoping to to host our 2021 internships back in the London office if public health conditions allow.
