Squarepoint is a global investment management firm that utilizes a diversified portfolio of systematic and quantitative strategies across financial markets that seeks to achieve high quality, uncorrelated returns for our clients. We have deep expertise in trading, technology and operations and attribute our success to rigorous scientific research. As a technology and data-driven firm, we design and build our own cuttingedge systems, from high performance trading platforms to large scale data analysis and compute farms. With offices around the globe, we emphasize true, global collaboration by aligning our investment, technology, and operations teams functionally around the world. Building on our quantitative research platform and process-driven approach, Squarepoint also runs discretionary strategies to take advantage of opportunities which cannot be traded fully systematically. 

We are looking to hire recent graduates to join our Discretionary Trading team. As a Junior Discretionary Trader, you will have the opportunity to work alongside our senior discretionary traders, who will provide on the desk training and mentorship. Your goal will be to help maintain target portfolio positions by assisting the senior traders with daily portfolio monitoring, maintenance, and hedging. As a collaborative organization, our discretionary traders work closely with quantitative researchers to leverage our world-class research platform to improve both discretionary and systematic strategies. You will leverage and develop a broad range of skills including fundamental and macro analysis, research, portfolio construction, risk management and execution. We currently run discretionary strategies in Equities, Commodities, Rates/FX, and Credit including Volatility trading across all asset classes. If you have an interest in trading and would like to learn how to manage your own risk overtime, we encourage you to apply.
