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.
Our Software Engineers help us leverage the latest and greatest technologies to build our trading and research systems. Do you want to scale up to thousands of cores to fit a new ML model? Do you like thinking how we can leverage the cloud for better DevOps? Do you want to become an expert in real-time trading systems? These are the things we do.
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.
