Job Description:

WorldQuant develops and deploys systematic financial strategies across a broad range of asset classes and global markets. We seek to produce high-quality predictive signals (alphas) through our proprietary research platform to employ financial strategies focused on exploiting market inefficiencies. Our teams work collaboratively to drive the production of alphas and financial strategies - the foundation of a balanced, global investment platform.

Technologists at WorldQuant research, design, code, test and deploy projects while working collaboratively with researchers and portfolio managers. Our environment is relaxed yet intellectually driven. Our teams are lean and agile, which means rapid prototyping of products with immediate user feedback. We seek people who think in code, aspire to tackle undiscovered computer science challenges and are motivated by being around like-minded people. In fact, of the 600 employees globally, approximately 500 of them code every day.

WorldQuant's success is built on a culture that pairs academic sensibility with accountability for results. Employees are encouraged to think openly about problems, balancing intellectualism and practicality. Excellent ideas come from anyone, anywhere. Employees are encouraged to challenge conventional thinking and possess an attitude of continuous improvement. That's a key ingredient in remaining a leader in any industry.

Our goal is to hire the best and the brightest. We value intellectual horsepower first and foremost, and people who demonstrate an outstanding talent. There is no roadmap to future success, so we need people who can help us build it. Our collective intelligence will drive us there.

The Role: We are seeking a highly-qualified Trading Systems Engineer to work in our Front Office Technology group. This team is responsible for building both the large-scale quantitative-research platforms that drive WorldQuant's operations and for building the global execution systems that execute WorldQuant's strategies in global financial markets.

Responsibilities (include, but not limited to the following):

  • Provide support for the real-time global execution system. Manage and improve operational infrastructure

  • Handle configuration, testing, installation, monitoring of applications and back end processes of a complex platform
  • Handle numerous requests sent by users, follow-up with users, and work with other groups on resolving issues
  • Analyze and optimize latencies
  • Participate in all facets of a project's life cycle from design, implementation, testing, documentation and deployment, with a focus on deployment and production support
  • Coordinate with other technology groups around releases and upgrades
  • Interact with developers, quants, portfolio managers, and remote support staff
    What You'll Bring
    • Degree in engineering or related field
    • Experience with DevOps lifecycle
