Cantab Capital Partners

Join our fun and friendly team - and build the science behind Cantab

Cantab Capital Partners is a quantitative hedge fund based in Cambridge, where computer models, rather than human traders, make the trading decisions. Building models that aim to forecast some aspects of market behaviour is a highly intellectual exercise and requires fairly radical assumptions. Much of our work involves taking ideas and results from academia and applying them to financial data. It's an empirical science and the world's financial markets are in some sense our laboratory.

We are a small company in terms of people, but we have an impressive and highly sophisticated infrastructure behind us, which really is the best of both worlds. Everyone is accessible and there is lots of communication and collaboration. Our technology and team have earned us a fantastic reputation, which means that we have been growing steadily since our launch in 2007 and are now a multibillion dollar asset manager with some of the most sophisticated and prestigious investors as clients.

As we have a very flat hierarchy, our team has the freedom to be involved in the projects that interest them. Our approach, and the way we think about things, means that we need people with strong statistical and programming skills. We hire people from a range of scientific disciplines, and there is no need to have previous financial experience.
