Proprietary Quantitative Cryptocurrency Trading Firm

What We Do
The Elysian Fund is a proprietary quantitative cryptocurrency trading firm. We specialize in market-making and trading for all forms of digital assets and cryptocurrencies.

The Job
The Elysian Fund is looking to add a Quantitative Researcher to support our crypto-currency and digital asset trading strategies. You will be responsible for research, statistical analysis, quantitative studies, model design, feature engineering, model pipeline development and building production-ready machine learning models for our team.

This is a full-time remote position with occasional travel for collaborative in-person sessions. You will have a flexible schedule to fit your lifestyle, including a daily “stand-up meeting” with the team. Our expectation is that you work approximately 40 hours per week.

You
We are looking for someone who understands the fundamentals of data science and who has, in a personal, academic, or professional capacity, built functional models.

Our modelling pipeline is written in Python and we make extensive use of cloud technologies. While programming may not be your strength today, a basic understanding of Python and SQL is a must. Our team has a strong programming background and will support your development in this area.

We are fundamentally a trading firm. Experience with or interest in cryptocurrencies, markets and investing is not necessary but a definite plus.

You are a self-driven, life-long learner who loves to be challenged. Problem solving is an enjoyable activity. You are creative, even if you struggle to draw a stick person. You are passionate about your ideas and are capable of articulating them clearly. 

Compensation
Annual Salary: $60,000-$100,000 CAD depending on experience
Extended health benefits (Canada Only)
5% of your base salary as an RRSP contribution (no matching required) (Canada Only)
$500/yr home office allowance
$30/mo cell phone stipend

About the Elysian Fund
We are counter-culture quants. 

Our belief is that the next generation of finance is cryptocurrency and digital assets and that it will be fundamentally different from the current generation. All previous norms are to be challenged. 

Our goal is to build innovative and agile trading strategies in the cryptocurrency space.

Your unique perspective is an important voice at the table.

We value being absurd, being different and being kind.
