Job Type



We're working in partnership with one of 2023's best performing hedge funds to support a high-volatility ranking, crypto trading desk, positioned in the top 5% cryptos on the market.

We're seeking a senior, entrepreneurially-minded QD with front-office experience to lead the team responsible for developing our client's quant tech stack.

The team sits on the trading desk, facing systematic research and trading teams.

Therefore, projects run in parallel with those of QRs / PMs / Traders and require strong collaboration between these teams to fully optimize systematic trading strategies.

Although a hands-on role, this designates strong comms and leadership capacities for mentorship of junior team members. Prospective candidates should be dedicated to pushing the bar coding standards and best practice.

The Build

Combination of greenfield projects as well as those focused on scaling and existing platforms and tools.

Projects including but not limited to :

  • design and prototyping of infrastructure / tools for use by systematic quantitative researchers and traders.
  • algo-trading systems across data risk, live-trading, post trade
  • Engaging live, on-chain data feeds to enable integration of DeFi venues


  • 5-15 years' professional experience, ideally within systematic trading.
  • Previous experience within crypto and DeFi or strong evidence of strong, relevant personal projects related to the domain.
  • Python and C++ (and knowledge of respective code quality standards)
  • Evidenced understanding of real-time, quantitative applications for the purpose of being robust and fully scalable.
  • Experienced in oversight of full end-to-end architecture of high-throughput systems.
  • Prior work in a start-up could lend itself well to the team, given collegiate and innovation-driven nature of team.
