About Us

Radix Trading is a research firm, powered by technology and monetized through trading. Our focus is building a new type of trading firm dedicated to research through targeted collaboration and vast ingenuity. We’re constantly evolving our strategies and developing new ones through innovative machine learning and statistical methodologies.

Our culture of openness enables fast turnaround from idea inception to execution, and continuous enhancement of our cutting-edge proprietary technology and automated research platform.

We operate in Chicago, New York, and Amsterdam, and participate on major electronic markets across North America, Europe and Asia. As a privately-funded company, we do not accept outside investments.

Who We Are

We are led by industry veterans who previously built and managed some of the most profitable trading teams in the world.

We have built a diverse team by blending interdisciplinary academics (undergraduate, PhD, Postdoc, and Professors) from top universities around the world with experienced researchers and seasoned technologists, including supercomputer specialists, senior engineers from Silicon Valley tech companies, and contributors to the C++ Standards Committee.

University Graduates

If you want to work on cutting-edge technology to solve really tough problems while getting near-immediate feedback on your best ideas, the trading industry is hard to beat. You will be part of the team that competes every day with some of the smartest, most driven people in the world.

And while the highly-publicized wave of high-frequency or “flash” trading based on sheer speed of execution may have reached its limit, we see continued opportunities with our strategy of using statistical research to outsmart the competition.

We are building a new type of trading firm dedicated to research through open, collaborative innovation. We are adding new associates into these roles:

Quantitative Researcher (Full-Time)

By working on a variety of projects with different collaborators over a six-month period, you’ll gain new knowledge and insight into the fundamentals of market dynamics, trading strategies, and our proprietary research platform. We’ve stripped away the boundaries of what you can access and touch internally, so while you learn the intricacies of our industry, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to contribute and directly affect our bottom line within your first few weeks on the team.

While interest in trading is key, a background in finance is definitely not. Our team is built mostly from academia — professors, postdocs, PhDs, and undergraduates — not from other trading firms. We seek mental diversity and add a select group of academics each year from a wide range of disciplines.

RESEARCH SKILLS

We’re looking for highly analytical people (math, physics, computer science, statistics, electrical engineering, etc.) who want to help build the research-driven trading firm of the future. To do that, you’ll need the following qualities:

  • Persistent Drive to Improve - Do you have an innate desire to rise to the next level, even after great accomplishment?
  • Creative Problem Solving and Probabilistic Thinking - You must enjoy learning and implementing new concepts quickly, combining knowledge from different domains to create new ideas, and take a data-driven and probabilistic approach to testing and implementing new ideas.
  • Team Mindset - We want people who understand 1+1 > 2 and are as committed to making the team better through sharing ideas as they are driven to improve their individual performance.
  • Mental Flexibility & Self Awareness - You’ll have to frequently adapt based on new data, results, and feedback on your trading ideas and your performance.
  • Orientation for Making Money - Although we value academic training, our work is not an academic exercise. We take a hacker’s approach to testing ideas, dropping projects that consume time without high upside, and focusing our next efforts on what will create the most value for the firm.
