The partners at Seven Eight Capital have a long track record of successfully implementing quantitative trading strategies in the global equity markets and have delivered superior risk-adjusted returns regardless of market conditions.  Writing code at Seven Eight Capital is about working with a small team of top-notch coders and quantitative traders.  We’re a hedge fund that is built on technology, and as a coder, you won’t be working on opaque “business logic” as a second tier player.  We’re a 100% quantitative/automated trading firm, and that means building the best technology we can.  Coding is our life-blood, and over 90% of our employees write code every day.  

Seven Eight combines the culture of a small startup with a unique partnership with a large investor that gives us the financial resources to grow quickly.  A people-first culture allows you to learn new skills and apply them to your job on a daily basis and the top-notch team around you will be there to help.  Frequent work outings bring a relaxed culture where everybody knows what happening and collaboration is encouraged.

This role is senior leadership opportunity.  You will have a great deal of responsibility in building next generation technology.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead the development of Seven Eight's next generation simulation and backtesting infrastructure;
  • Interact with Quant Researchers and Developers to understand and deliver new enhancement requirements;
