This role will draw upon your knowledge of programming and mathematics: you will be challenged to rapidly prototype early-stage solutions and build models—e.g., forecasting the trades and themes our clients may be interested in or predicting the daily trade volume of a bond. Data-driven insights from usage patterns and user feedback will drive you to condense your work into simple and efficient real-time workflow tools. You will also be required to think strategically on a higher level, proposing new business metrics or suggesting alternatives. As you gain expertise in the dynamics of the trading business, you will have the opportunity to dive deeper into your areas of interest.
