As a SysAdmin your goal is to own and enable our technology team to experiment with new technologies and unlock the full potential of the software we’re developing here at Radix. The ability to execute in a fast-paced environment is crucial for this team, you’ll need to understand the Linux OS, Linux distribution, have a deep understanding of Networking, and are excited by coming up with creative solutions to the technology challenges of a global, systematic trading firm. 

We leverage cutting-edge software and hardware to push production level code daily and evolve fully-automated strategies, alpha generation processes, live trading systems, and machine learning research and simulation infrastructure used to analyze petabytes of data. 

Across the firm, technologists bring prior experience from some of the top teams across technology and trading, and by adding only a few new grads each year, we offer each a ton of responsibility, intimate mentorship from industry experts, and top tier compensation. Over the last two seasons we’ve added ~10 Quantitative Technologists each year with combined internship experience from Jane Street, HRT, DeepMind, Google, Monad Labs, Apple, Intel, Meta, Two Sigma, Citadel, Nuro, Stripe and many more in addition to success in IOI, IMO, ICPC, and Putnam competitions. 

We provide starter projects that we know will add value to the firm, while encouraging exploration and independent projects to improve inefficiencies, propose iterations, and own significant processes and tools within your first few months. 

COMPENSATION – Competitive salary, plus quarterly bonus based on individual performance and contribution towards success of others and the firm.


We’re looking for highly analytical people who want to help build the research-driven trading firm of the future. And to do that, you’ll need the following qualities:

> Programming; awareness of strength in particular language(s) and ability to solve more complex problems due to understanding nuances of the language(s)

> Persistent Drive to Improve - Do you have an innate desire to rise to the next level, even after great accomplishments?

> Creative Problem Solving and Probabilistic Thinking - You must enjoy learning and implementing new concepts quickly, combining knowledge from different domains to create new ideas, and take a data-driven and probabilistic approach to testing and implementing new ideas.

> Team Mindset - We want people who understand 1+1 > 2 and are as committed to making the team better through sharing ideas as they are driven to improve their individual performance.

> Mental Flexibility & Self Awareness - You’ll have to frequently adapt based on new data, results, and feedback on your ideas and performance.
