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.

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.

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.
