Overview
Are you passionate about maths, puzzles and strategy games? Interested in how you can turn this passion into a career?

SIG is looking for soon-to-be and recent graduates who are interested in using decision science to solve problems in the world around them to join our 2025 Graduate Quantitative Trader program.  

SIG is one of the world’s largest market makers, with a unique approach to trading, technology, and research. While this background puts us at the top of our game, what really makes us successful is our quantitative approach to decision making and the collaboration between our employees. 
 
SIG Graduate Quantitative Trader Program
As a Quantitative Trader, you will learn the quantitative and game-theoretical approach that SIG uses to make decisions in the financial markets. You will work closely with experienced quantitative traders, who share a passion for mathematics, problem solving, and technology, both on the trading desk and in the classroom. You will learn about decision science, game theory, and capital markets in the classroom and in mock trading sessions to reinforce what you are learning on the desk. You will also play poker and other strategy games to further develop your decision-making skills.

SIG’s Quantitative Trader program is designed to help you develop into an autonomous decision maker, capable of creating profitable trading strategies, assessing risk, and appropriately allocating firm capital. At the end of the program, you’ll be invited to attend a 10-week training class in our Philadelphia office, where you’ll learn directly from one of our founding partners, as well as senior traders who have decades of experience in the industry.

What we're looking for
Numerate + Logical: When it comes to decision making, you use clear and sound reasoning. You’re rational and like to use numbers and data to come up with sensible solutions.
Problem Solvers: You enjoy solving puzzles and love it when you discover a solution to a difficult problem.
Communicators: You enjoy building relationships with those you work closely with, and you enjoy sharing ideas, expressing your thoughts, and listening to the views of others.
Curious: You’re excited by a career in trading. You don’t need to have studied finance (we’ll teach you what you need to know).
Soon-to-be or Recent Grad: Confirmed plan to graduate by December 2024 with a degree in any discipline (most typically STEM), Distinction average WAM, from an Australian or New Zealand University

What’s in it for you:
• Our market leading education program incorporates classroom theory and simulated learning.
• Our non-hierarchical culture allows employees of every level to thrive and make an impact. We are not your typical trading firm – the environment is casual, collaborative and we focus on continuous development.
