On our busiest days, we trade over $10-$20 billion equity shares in the US alone. We bring a deep understanding of markets, a scientific approach, and innovative technology to trade in the world’s highly competitive financial markets, focusing primarily on equities and equity derivatives.
Our Trading Desk Operations Specialist role helps manage the operational side of the trading desk's activities and interfaces with various groups within the firm to ensure that all trades are reflected accurately in all systems.


This position involves coordinating with members of the internal infrastructure groups (Operations, Compliance, etc) as well as external parties regarding issues such as monitoring trading windows, properly booking trades, and resolving breaks.

Our entrepreneurial culture is driven by our talented team of traders and programmers. Technical skills are important to this role and candidates should be confident working with data and have a strong foundation in mathematics, Excel, and VBA.
The person in this role will become familiar with both the broad flow of the trading/settlement cycle as well as the regulatory and operational considerations of each step.


Other projects include maintaining complex spreadsheets, optimizing existing processes, and developing new tools for the desk to use day-to-day.
