Key responsibilities:


As part of the research team, you will be responsible for building out our new analytics libraries and platform, expanding product coverage and developing a full suite of tools to support efficient pricing, calculation of risk and behaviour analysis for large portfolios of instruments.


This includes working on a task engine for orchestrating the interaction of bitemporal databases, internal and external pricing libraries sharing a common API, as well as integrating multiple sources of data to provide an aggregated understanding of the portfolio at any point in time to support views on cashflows, risk, performance-over-time and other analysis.


Separately, we are building out our own suite of analytics to support various pricing approaches from IFRS to Risk-Neutrality for ultimately the full range of asset classes in a unified framework.


What skills, experience and qualifications we require:


  • Masters/PhD in a STEM subject
  • 5+ years’ experience working in a role as a quantitative analyst or developer in a Tier 1 investment bank, hedge fund or similar
  • Excellent C++ or C# experience.
  • Knowledge of distributed systems would be valuable. Experience with AWS, Kubernetes and Docker would be a positive addition.
  • Knowledge of risk-neutral pricing methodology is desirable; such as LMM, HW, HJM, Markov, SABR
  • Familiarity with more than one asset class, particularly credit, interest rates and FX.
  • Some knowledge of IFRS and alternate pricing methodologies would be useful in addition.
