This is the perfect opportunity to gain exposure to a real-life trading floor. Expand your knowledge of the financial markets and apply your quantitative and technical skills to solve the multitude of challenging problems that enable trading success.

1) Options Market Maker

You love puzzles, predictions and problem solving. You're always hungry to learn. You're driven to understand the why, and you're also comfortable making decisions under uncertainty. You have a real passion for quantitative problems and a flair for numbers.

2) Delta 1 Trader

You have a love for statistical analysis and deriving insights from big data sets. You enjoy micro analysis and applying those insights to the bigger picture. You're likely more comfortable with a slower pace of work, but still retain a competitive spirit and drive to succeed.

3) Wholesale Trader

Building rapport comes naturally to you. You enjoy developing strong relationships and you don't take yourself too seriously. You have amazing communication skills and remain focused under pressure. You're passionate about quantitative problems and have a flair for numbers. And you have an inherent drive to work in a fast paced, sometimes uncertain environment.

We are always on the lookout for good talent! There are limited positions for our 2021 Internship and 2022 Graduate Program, and we are also seeking expressions of interest for our 2022 campaign. Please complete this application to join our Trading 'Talent Community' and ensure that you identify your year of graduation, so that we can keep you up to date with suitable upcoming vacancies.
