Quantitative Researcher

Can you solve this puzzle?

An ant leaves its anthill in order to forage for food. It moves with the speed of 10cm per second, but it doesn't know where to go, therefore every second it moves randomly 10cm directly north, south, east or west with equal probability.

  1. If the food is located on east-west lines 20cm to the north and 20cm to the south, as well as on north-south lines 20cm to the east and 20cm to the west from the anthill, how long will it take the ant to reach it on average?
  2. What is the average time the ant will reach food if it is located only on a diagonal line passing through (10cm, 0cm) and (0cm, 10cm) points?
  3. Can you write a program that comes up with an estimate of average time to find food for any closed boundary around the anthill? What would be the answer if food is located outside an defined by ( (x – 2.5cm) / 30cm )2 + ( (y – 2.5cm) / 40cm )2 < 1 in coordinate system where the anthill is located at (x = 0cm, y = 0cm)? Provide us with a solution rounded to the nearest integer.

Did you like this puzzle? Are you looking for bigger challenges? Do you want to use your analytical skills to solve real world problems and see the results right away? Do you enjoy writing computer programs? Then the Quantitative Researcher position might be a great opportunity for you!

Interested in trading, developing trading strategies, applying AI and/or machine learning techniques and being on the edge of your seat while making decisions? Keep on reading! We offer you the opportunity to become a successful Trader at a world-renowned trading firm.

Flow Traders is at the intersection of finance, cutting edge technology and scientific research. Financial markets have made a rapid shift from trading in the pit towards algorithmic trading, and our firm has developed into an entrepreneurial and team driven FinTech Company.

As a Trader you manage and optimize our daily positions (pricing and trading) in a wide range of financial products including ETPs, bonds, derivatives, FX, crypto’ s and complexly structured products together with the Traders on your desk. You will formulate innovative trading strategies and, in close collaboration with our Software Engineers, develop trading models and tools that allow us to capitalize on opportunities swiftly and adequately.

Onboarding
As we do not expect you to have any far-reaching trading or finance knowledge upfront, we offer you an extensive onboarding program of 3 months. You will learn about our core business, the financial products we trade and the mathematics required to price them. You will also go through trading simulations and quantitative classes given by our Senior Traders. Gradually, you will take on more responsibilities, start monitoring markets, making split-second portfolio adjustments, and you will finish your onboarding program with a real trading project with other graduate Traders.

After your onboarding, you will be assigned to a trading desk based on your skills and interests. From that moment on you will start developing into one of the following trading areas:

Spread Trading
Focus on pricing challenging financial products that require impeccable risk/reward trading decisions.

As a Spread Trader, you will use statistical models to price and capitalize on expected price movements of a wide range of asset classes. This form of arbitrage is often less speed dependent. The edge comes from determining the true price of these products better than the rest of the market. You will constantly evaluate the risk/reward associated with your trades and positions based on robust statistical analysis combined with years of trading experience.

Quantitative Trading
Focus on applying Mathematics, Statistics, Probability Theory, Machine Learning techniques (e.g. deep neural networks) to create profitable trading strategies.

As a Quantitative Trader, you will work in a team consisting of Quantitative Traders, Traders and Quantitative Researchers to optimize existing trading strategies while learning how to ultimately develop your own trading ideas. You will back test, optimize and implement it in the trading engine to convert simulation results to a profitable trading strategy. Interest in Machine Learning Techniques and AI, experience is an advantage;

Tech Trading
Focus on optimizing our trading software in close collaboration with our Product Managers and Software Engineers. You will lead the process of the development of new tools that will improve several trading desks on the trading floor.

As a Technical Trader, you will use in-depth knowledge of market structure and algorithms to create strategies and setups that enable us to trade a large range of products effectively. You will create new approaches to automate trading and develop setups that resemble the strategic approaches of a screen Trader, allowing us to trade orders of magnitude faster, and in many more assets than would be possible with manual trading. Finally, you will provide guidance to our development department regarding the continuous development of our in-house trading software, using experience obtained from analyzing our automated trading, to improve our trading strategies.

Screen Trading
Continuously quoting bid and ask prices and making split second decisions based on movements in the market.

As a Screen Trader, your primary responsibility is to act as a market maker in a group of products. This can be based on high frequency trades on exchange, or requesting one of our counterparties to show a price off exchange. By offsetting all the different flows you will try to optimize the spread between buy and sell prices. In order to do this as efficiently as possible, we continuously have to improve on all fronts, for example developing new pricing models.

What you need to succeed:

  • University degree, preferably in Mathematics, Statistics, Econometrics, Engineering, Finance, Technology or related;

  • Demonstrable interest in trading and global financial markets;

  • Keen interest in IT systems, and an affinity for development languages (C, C++, Python, JAVA, or similar);

  • Innovative & creative high potential with excellent mental arithmetic and analytical skills;

  • Competitive, communicative and able to deliver under pressure;

  • A distinct ability to spot arising opportunities and the assertiveness to seize them;

  • Fluent in English;

  • Maximum of three years’ work experience.

A Day in the Life

Start up systems and check on the latest news and market movements.

08:15

Stand up meeting trading: analysts give a briefing on the latest market developments and figures of the day, an IT operations representative briefs on the health of our systems: all systems are good!

08:30 - 9:30

A new developed strategy based on a curve model is live at another trading desk. I check if the setup is correct and if the model behaves correctly. Since the model is in a deployment phase it is very important to monitor the behavior of the strategy until someone else can fully takeover. I keep monitoring the strategy until 09:30.

09:30 - 12:00

Back at my own desk. I analyze last weeks data in Python while monitoring the behavior of the curve model on the site. Discuss the model with a fellow quant trader to see where we can improve.

12:00

Grab some lunch and eat it at my desk.

12:30 - 14:00

On my way to the training room. Today I am going to teach a group of junior traders how to implement a model as a new strategy in our trading platform.

14:00 - 15:00

Discus latest developments and planning with a development team.

15:00

Sync on the behavior of the curve model strategy.

15:30

Testing another new strategy in the simulation environment. This model is not ready for production yet but the results look promising. Most likely it is ready to run in production at my desk next week.

17:15

Monitor the curve model until markets close.

17:40

Back at my desk. Do some java coding to improve the curve model.

19:00

Going home.

Mostly programming, I start working on my to-do list which are mostly researching and designing new trading algorithms, but projects can range from statistically investigating a trading idea in Python, R or MATLAB to coding new improved versions of trading algos in JAVA. As an example today I was working on a bug in one of the trading algorithms that I wrote as we noticed it doing some weird trades.

12:00 - 12:30 PM:        

Lunchtime! At Flow we enjoy a great lunches. To illustrate this: Every now and then, we get spareribs and nothing makes me happier.

After lunch I continue where I left off and try to finish any projects with pressing deadlines, or ad-hoc research requests that come in.

17:45 PM:                   

As most European exchanges close, I shut down my PC and head home. However, on Fridays it usually worthwhile to stay and have a drink at our in-house bar where some good old trash talking usually leads to a counterstrike team battle at our gaming room combined with a few beers.

sterke affiniteit met technologische innovaties en wil je je kennis op dit gebied
uitbreiden? Kom dan het Chief Innovation Office Toezicht (CIOT) versterken als
stagiair technologie en innovatie toezicht.

Jij hebt impact
Technologische ontwikkeling en digitalisering hebben een grote impact op de
financiële sector en daarmee op het toezicht. Binnen het iForum starten
gezamenlijke innovatieve initiatieven die waarde creëren voor zowel de instellingen
die onder ons toezicht staan – zoals banken, verzekeraars, en pensioenfondsen –
als voor DNB. We discussiëren met hen over de impact van technologische
innovaties op de sector en houden gezamenlijke pilots en experimenten op
onderwerpen waar technologie en toezicht samenkomen. Tijdens deze stage leer je
hoe DNB in het iForum samen met de financiële sector de kansen en risico’s van
technologische innovatie onderzoekt en hoe dit in het toezicht en de sector kan
worden toegepast.


Voor meer informatie over het iForum in 1 minuut: bekijk deze video.
Voor verdere informatie over het iForum klik HIER.


Zo doe je dat als stagiair bij DNB


Als stagiair binnen het Chief Innovation Office Toezicht (CIOT) werk je onder
begeleiding van ervaren medewerkers van het team mee aan lopende projecten op
het gebied van digitalisering en technologie binnen het toezicht op banken,
verzekeraars, pensioenfondsen en betaalinstellingen. Denk hierbij aan:

  • De organisatie van Innovatie Forum-gerelateerde evenementen waar we het

    van onze digitale toezichtportalen.
  • Projectmatige hands-on ondersteuning bij lopende iForum initiatieven. Denk

    DNB.


Hier doe je dat
Het CIOT is onderdeel van het toezichtdomein waar we onder meer toezicht houden

ben je werkzaam binnen het iForum-team dat bestaat uit 10 personen.
Het is een nieuw onderdeel binnen DNB, met veel ruimte voor eigen ideeën én
verantwoordelijkheid.


Normaal gesproken werk je vanuit ons kantoor in Amsterdam. In de huidige
maatschappelijke situatie werkt het overgrote deel van onze medewerkers vanuit
huis. DNB zorgt ervoor dat je dit uitstekend kan doen. Denk aan laptop, telefoon en
thuiswerkplekinrichting op aanvraag. Zodra de situatie het toelaat hopen we
iedereen weer regelmatig op kantoor te verwelkomen!


Dit breng je mee

verantwoordelijkheidsgevoel. Je denkt actief mee over communicatie uitingen,

workshops en events. Je bent niet bang om mensen te benaderen en snel een
netwerk binnen DNB en de financiële sector op te bouwen. 
Waar zijn we verder nog naar op zoek?

  • Je volgt een relevante WO studie voor deze stage. Bijvoorbeeld economie,
    econometrie, data science, business intelligence, business analytics of
    informatiemanagement.
  • Belangrijker dan een specifieke opleidingsrichting is je sterke affiniteit met
    nieuwe technologieën zoals Big data en Artificial Intelligence en het verbinden
    van mensen.
  • Je hebt bij voorkeur ervaring met het coördineren van initiatieven.
  • Om optimale kennis op te doen adviseren wij een stage van minimaal een
    halfjaar te volgen. De exacte startdatum en stageperiode is in overleg.


Dit bieden we je
Een stage midden in de financiële en economische actualiteit. Bij een heel diverse,
betrouwbare en maatschappelijk betrokken organisatie, die voortdurend inspeelt op
de veranderende eisen van onze omgeving. En die doorlopend innoveert. Dit biedt
jou volop kansen je verder te verdiepen en nieuwe ervaringen op te doen. Dit
allemaal in hartje Amsterdam, dus prima per openbaar vervoer bereikbaar!

  • Een stagevergoeding van € 570,-- bruto per maand, op basis van een 36-urige
    werkweek.

Wil jij als stagiair werken met impact? Solliciteer dan direct op deze stage! Als
sollicitatie ontvangen we graag uiterlijk 1 april een motivatiebrief en je complete cv
inclusief cijferlijsten. Bij voldoende passende reacties kunnen we de vacature al

Data & Technology traineeship bij DNB

Werk samen met je medetrainees en vakspecialisten aan het versterken van jouw expertise op het gebied van development, data en security als Data & Technology trainee bij DNB!

Jij hebt impact

Bij DNB werk je met impact op financiële stabiliteit en duurzame welvaart. Ook heeft DNB ruim 600 ton goud in de kluis én tientallen terabytes aan data: ons nieuwe goud. Dit goud moet zorgvuldig worden gedolven en daar kom jij in beeld. In ons Data & Technology trainee programma ben je onderdeel van verschillende teams op het gebied van development, data en security. Je werkt samen met andere trainees en vakspecialisten aan verschillende innovaties en je werkt op een Agile-werkwijze.

Zo doe je dat als Data & Technology trainee bij DNB

Als trainee van het Data & Technology trainee programma wissel je, gedurende twee jaar, drie keer van functie en afdeling. Je draait volop mee in de specialistische teams en maakt zo kennis met development, data science en security bij DNB én je volgt trainingen gericht op technische verdieping en persoonlijke ontwikkeling.

Je werkt steeds een periode van acht maanden mee in een team en rouleert tussen de domeinen data, development en security. Je wordt binnen deze domeinen betrokken bij bijvoorbeeld onderzoeken naar datakwaliteit, de ontwikkeling van applicaties voor het toezicht op financiële instellingen of bij cyber security projecten. Dat kan bij verschillende afdelingen: 

  • Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de data-afdeling, waar met moderne data science technieken, zoals R en Python, relevante inzichten worden verkregen om zo te voorspellen welke impact bepaalde ontwikkelingen in Nederland (denk aan de huidige Coronacrisis) hebben op partijen die onder toezicht staan van DNB. 
  • Of de afdeling monetair, gericht op het handhaven van een robuuste, betrouwbare en veilige dienstverlening van het betalingsverkeer, het reservebeheer en de uitvoer van tenderoperaties. 
  • Of de afdeling Statistiek, waar gegevens worden verzameld en verwerkt van financiële instellingen en bedrijven, die de input vormen voor nationale en Europese statistieken. 
  • En wat dacht je van ons Cyber Defense Center? Zij zijn verantwoordelijk voor het bewaken van de ICT infrastructuur van DNB voor cyberaanvallen, en de uitgifte en het beheer van autorisaties. 

Als trainee besteed je doorlopend tijd aan jouw ontwikkeling, onder andere door inhoudelijke opleidingen en vaardigheidstrainingen. Soms doe je dit individueel, maar vaak ook met je medetrainees. Samen doorlopen jullie een intensief en vooral leuk traject, waarin jullie elkaar beter leren kennen en elkaar kunnen helpen of advies kunnen geven. 

Hier doe je dat

Bij DNB werken we aan vertrouwen en financiële stabiliteit. Wij zijn de centrale bank van Nederland en houden toezicht op de financiële sector. Je kent ons vast als zakelijk en professioneel.
