About the Role
Being a Quant Strategist at Smarkets means working in a highly productive team that has two key focuses, providing liquidity and developing new trading strategies.
Having generated terabytes of data from multiple sources, the team looks at novel ways of analysing, visualising, and then using the insight to improve our existing strategies or create new ones.

The team prices a large volume of contracts in a number of different sports and all of our strategies are executed in a no-touch algorithmic manner.
