  • Analyze financial market developments and help build, revise, and enhance risk methodologies and processes for firm’s trading strategies
  • Develop and enhance real-time risk monitoring and reporting tools for firm’s key risks while ensuring that the team’s technical solutions are robust and high quality
  • Partner with software development, data engineering, and trading support team members to propose and implement solutions within trading and support team related software

Position requirements:

  • At least 5 years of relevant work experience in the financial risk management field with a strong quantitative and technical background
  • Experience with analyzing and managing the risks associated with a portfolio of equities, futures, and options
