Graduate Quant Researcher at IMC Trading
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT A TRADING CAREER AT IMC?
IMC trades a wide range of financial instruments, in many different ways. This means we look for different types of traders; from the quantitative minds who enjoy the mathematical side of trading to more operationally focused personalities who thrive on interacting with brokers over the phone.
Our traders share one thing in common, though: they are at their best when solving complex problems. Their insights into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we always trade in the right place, at the right time.
As a Quantitative Researcher at IMC, you will be given resources and opportunities to effectively impact our global trading strategies. IMC is a place where creativity, teamwork and innovation are recognized and rewarded. Quantitative Researchers collaborate with Traders to evaluate existing models and suggest improvements, requiring superior analytical, mathematical, and computing skills. As a Quantitative Researcher, you will have the freedom to find your niche within the firm and excel. We hire the best because responsibility and ownership starts on day one at IMC.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
Build custom analysis tools to explore new research ideas
Design mathematical models based upon trading ideas
Apply rigorous analytical and quantitative techniques to solve complex problems
Implement these new models and launch them into production
Conduct best practice to keep our eco-system logical and consistent
YOUR FIRST SIX MONTHS
