Oxford Knight Published: February 19, 2021
Paris, France
Job Type


Salary: € 200 - 300k total compensation

3 - 7 years' experience

Job description:


A multi-strategy fund with offices globally looking for a quantitative developer to join a futures arbitrage-focused team in Europe.

This team operates as a trading pod within the larger fund. It means they benefit from the advantages of being a start-up fund (autonomy, small team, direct impact and tied to PnL) but with the backing and security of the larger firm (the capital, shared infrastructure and resources).

They've got a fantastic name in the industry with good reason; paying strong salaries on both base and bonus, and a superb tech culture.


In this team of 4, you will be working directly with the PM and trading group. You will be responsible for designing and coding up the tools for the systematic trading platform. With an initial build of tools for directional volatility/options trading (executing and monitoring), ultimately you will be managing all aspects of the trading platforms.

Skills and Experience Required

  • Minimum 3 years' commercial experience in systematic trading (prop desk or hedge fund)
  • Solid coding skills in Python (Pandas, Numpy, etc.)
  • Strong development experience with Cross Asset Pricing and Risk Systems
  • Ideally, C/C++ experience and knowledge of both Windows and Linux environments
  • Excellent academics in a hard science, e.g. Maths and Computer Science

Benefits & Incentives

  • Strong salary + bonuses + generous benefits package
  • Collaborative culture and an exciting place to work
  • Huge amount of ownership and autonomy

If you feel you are a good match or interested in a general chat about the hedge fund market in Europe, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
