  • Planning, executing, and documenting tests to verify and validate performance, expose issues, identify root causes and implement corrective actions
  • You will work with an experienced electrical/software engineer that has already created the initial functionality of a prototype; you are expected to mature the ideas into robust designs
  • You will interface with the other PFF functions to ensure all requirements are met and potential problems are identified early and mitigated promptly.
  • You will interface with the Piaggio engineering, design, manufacturing, and service teams in Italy to take advantage of their 130-year history of expertise with 2-, 3- and 4-wheel vehicles

About You

  • Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering or related discipline

Demonstrated skills and experience in:

  • PCB layout and design
  • Electrical architecture and wiring schematics

Quantitative Researcher at Boston Hedge Fund
Domeyard LP

Bridging mathematics and low-latency trading

Domeyard is seeking a Quantitative Researcher with significant experience in developing low latency statistical arbitrage or market making strategies. You will be joining the core of a company with a single, monolithic HFT team. The ideal candidate is someone who is intellectually curious and loves solving mathematical problems – you might have considered pursuing an academic career at some point and you are looking at this job posting because you are enticed by the fast feedback loop in our field.

What you’ll be doing:

Building low latency liquidity taking or market making strategies from end-to-end. Developing mathematical models to solve difficult stochastic problems. Analyzing convergence and boundedness properties of algorithms and estimates. Translating your models to fast computational methods. Collaborating with researchers and developers to implement all of the above. You must meet both of these minimum requirements:

3+ years work experience in high-frequency trading at a leading hedge fund or proprietary trading firm. Experience with direct responsibility in construction of alpha signals or monetization for latency-sensitive, capacity-constrained strategies. In addition, here are some of the attributes that we’re looking for:

History of peer-reviewed publications in optimization, algorithms, statistics, numerical analysis, signal processing, operations research, or a related field. Graduate-level degree in any scientific, mathematical or engineering discipline. Programming experience with C++ in a UNIX-based environment. Experience using data analysis tools in Python or R. Intense passion for solving quantitative problems. Recent track record with low variance in PnL at high % of ADV. Working familiarity with low latency architecture. Knowledge in futures, cash equities or cash FX markets. Domeyard is a hedge fund focused on high frequency trading. We are backed by the CEO of one of the largest quant funds in the world ($55 billion in AUM), the pioneer of China’s internet industry, one of the world’s biggest fintech investors, and more.

We are a flat organization, in which the founders sit next to the interns, and traditional titles don’t exist. Our flexible work hours, casual dress code, startup environment (open office with a gaming room, snack pantry, catered food) and generous employee perks (insurance, transportation, phone, health and dental coverage) ensure that you can commit fully to your intellectual interests. We welcome cultural diversity and are able to sponsor H1-B visas.

We are looking for people who share our passion for science and technology, add a fun-loving character to our team, and inspire each other’s growth. We are also looking for potential that we can help nurture, which is why no financial experience is expected. You will be joining as an early team member, influencing the firm’s direction, collaborating on existing projects, and leading projects of your own. Feel free to show us any work that demonstrates your interests, e. g. code samples, academic publications, GitHub projects.

For announcements, events, and the occasional team photo, connect with us on LinkedIn.
