Wants to hire Quants and Developers out of: Citadel, GS, Barclays,
Citi, Timber Hill, Knight Capital and UBS AMM teams.
This is for an Automated Market Making (AMM) business that trades
Options. Sometimes these groups call themselves the AMM or Automated
Options Trading business or even OAMM.
The manager wants to hire quants only out of one of the AMM businesses
listed above. He would prefer a junior and mid-level guy (who knows
what he's doing but isn't making a million bucks yet) and they must be
working on desk or in some way directly with traders. He wants quants
that know how to make money. Checklist of requirements for quants:
Volatility modeling (this is 101 stuff), spread and size calibration,
calibration methods in general and how to calculate edge? If they
can't do any of this they are not right person.
These guys usually make 200k-1 million or more. He will pay what he needs to pay to get quant from one of the preferred shops.
He also wants to hire a pair of C++ developers for the trading desk,
preferably from one of the shops listed above, but they must come from
an AMM business and must have experience with exchange connectivity for
options, such as the ISE, CBOE etc.. These guys are usually 150-300K or
more. Also interviewing for next quarter.
