This work is where a passion for technology, software development, and mathematics converge. A position as a quant developer immerses you in the design, development, testing, and deployment of trading system software solutions that power automated trading. In addition, quant devs work closely with quantitative researchers and analysts to define priorities and deliver the best software solution for each situation.
Typically proficient in one or more specialized coding languages—C++ and Python, for example—quant developers bridge the gap between software developers and quantitative analysts. Familiarity with disciplines such as machine learning, natural language processing, platform development, and networking is an advantage for quant devs as well.
