Junior Developer C#.NET
A local hedge fund is expanding their development team. Their quantitative investment approach involves the systematic application of investment insights, which they codify in their proprietary return, risk, and transaction cost forecasting models. They use these forecasts in constructing optimized portfolios, including long-only and active extension portfolios in addition to market neutral long-short hedge funds.
The developer will work in a small team that builds automated systems for the research group. The research group is responsible for coming up with investments ideas, codifying those ideas into signals, back-testing the signals, and producing return and risk forecasts based on the signals to drive trading decisions. The primary purpose of the software managed by Research Systems is to produce forecasts that drive trading decisions. It is therefore very important that these systems be logically correct, fast, and reliable. The developer will have autonomy commensurate with his/her abilities.
