PDT Partners, a quantitative investment manager, seeks an analytical, productive, and collaborative professional to join our Finance, Accounting and Treasury (“FACT”) team.  This is a great opportunity to hone existing analytical skills, while diving deeply into the financial operations of a global hedge fund.  Responsibilities will range from daily counterparty exposure and margin analysis, monitoring and thinking strategically about financing costs of the funds, fund accounting and compliance reporting, and being involved in the setup of new products, counterparties, and funds.  The Fund Accounting and Treasury associate will work closely with the team, including the Treasurer and head of FACT, the CFO, and with our fund operations, legal and compliance, investor relations, and operational risk management groups. 

Why join us?  PDT Partners has a stellar 25+ year track record and a reputation for excellence. Our goal is to be the best quantitative investment manager in the world—measured by the quality of our funds, not their size.  PDT’s extremely high employee-retention rate speaks for itself.  Our people are intellectually exceptional and our community is close-knit, down-to-earth, and diverse.  We value your intelligence, creativity, and tenacity more than direct prior experience.


  • Manage the daily counterparty margin requirements, including understanding margin rules and methodologies and helping to negotiate new rates with counterparties
  • Analyze and optimize financing costs across counterparties

  • Liaise with the prime brokers, custodian bank, administrator, and other counterparties

  • Provide financial data for third parties, including investors and trading counterparties
  • Lead FACT on new product launches and integration into existing PDT systems

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
