About the Role
As Quantitative Research Analyst you will be conducting research on a vast array of real-world data sets, with support and guidance from senior researchers, to implement data analysis, data mining and provide reports. You will continuously improve on mathematical/statistical models and help prepare algorithms that will be translated into code.
We expect you to be versatile, flexible and very creative to think of new innovative solutions. You will also have the opportunity to pursue some of your own ideas and implement them right into our production systems. This role is an entry position for a future quantitative researcher and can initially be part time for students or full time for graduates.
