Senior Quantitative Researcher

QuantTrax is an international proprietary HFT fund headquartered in Dubai, UAE – one of the most rapidly evolving fintech hubs in the world. Thanks to the quality of our trading strategies and ultra-low latency infrastructure powered by FPGA, we successfully rival the industry’s biggest names, consistently securing leading positions in market-making volume on major exchanges.

For us, HFT is not a short sprint, but rather a strategic game of Go. Instead of prioritizing short-term returns and simple moves, we dedicate our focus to long-term growth and global expansion. That’s why our trading teams are concentrated on developing state-of-the-art strategies, aimed at thriving across a variety of markets and assets by design. A Senior Quant we seek should become a full-fledged part of the team and bring their visionary approach and expertise to empower our sky-rocketing scaling strategy.

Our commitment to you is straightforward: unparalleled autonomy, a wealth of capital resources without the strings of reporting to external investors or clients, and all the necessary tech and research resources. You will have unlimited freedom to experiment and realize your vision: any assets and types of strategies (be it taker or maker), as well as the opportunity to try different risk profiles. At every step, you'll be backed by a cross-disciplinary team of adept developers, ML engineers, and the crème de la crème of Quants –  winners of international Math and Programming olympiads.

Our PnL is the best proof: we always achieve the ambitious goals we set. The only question is: Will we achieve the new ones together, or will we do it without you?

What you’ll get by joining us:

  • Unlimited freedom of action: we trust your expertise and encourage you to build solutions as you see fit and question the status quo.
  • Startup Atmosphere, Enterprise Resources: a fast Research-to-Production cycle (deploy the very next day), minimum bureaucracy and approvals, cutting-edge technology, and almost unlimited computing power.
  • Corresponding level of responsibility and income: you will report directly to the CEO and get a comprehensive fix + uncapped bonus based on your personal contribution to the PnL.
  • An opportunity to join the core team at the early stage: experts with more than 10 years in the industry, Senior Devs from tier-1 companies, winners and prize-winners of international Math and programming olympiads.
  • An environment where there is always room for further growth: in time, you can potentially oversee an entire market segment or multiple markets.
  • Olympic team-level of care about the employees: health insurance, sport and leisure membership, lunch delivery, relocation support if needed.

What you’ll be in charge of:

  • Develop and implement diverse trading strategies.
  • Shape our long-term vision.
  • Mentor and guide our Quants team.
  • Collaborate with Infrastructure and ML teams.
