Our staff is located in The Bahamas, Austria, China, and other international locations, giving us flexibility and reach across the globe. Our organization structure is flat and our diverse multi-disciplinary teams are comprised of Research, Data, Trading, and Development. We offer a spacious, contemporary work environment located in the Bahamas and we wish to expand our Research, Data and Development workforce.
We are looking to hire a talented individual to be part of a team surrounding the acquisition, cleaning and verification of financial reference and high frequency tick data.
Real world data is messy and requires preprocessing over and beyond just visually scanning data and updating bad records. It is critical to have good data as input to successful financial modeling. Typical problems include bad ticks in isolation or succession, missing data, bad dates, transposition errors, outliers, delayed data, dates on weekend or holiday or out of order, and incongruent sources. The complexity in cleaning the data lies in handling marginal errors whilst retaining the reality and statistical properties of the data.
This is a challenging and rewarding opportunity for someone passionate about technology, extremely meticulous and detail orientated, with a drive for producing high quality work in a hands-on role. Your primary goal shall be to improve the robustness and quality of the data that is made available for Research and Trading.
