Virtu is the global leader in electronic market making. We actively make markets across a broad range of asset classes including equities, foreign exchange, commodities, options and fixed income, providing two-sided liquidity on over two hundred market centers around the world. As market makers, we lower costs for both retail and institutional investors by supplying competitive bids and offers, without seeking to take on risky directional positions. Virtu's liquidity provision plays a vital role in the overall health and efficiency of the global financial markets, especially in times of market turbulence.
As a Trading Analyst you are interfacing directly with markets responsible for the operation, improvement, and ongoing implementation of our automated trading strategies. You will monitor risk, reconcile positions, liaise with trading counter-parties, and verify trading activity, in close collaboration with other traders and the development team.
No finance background is necessary or expected. We are not seeking any specific expertise, but you should have demonstrated a depth of understanding in an analytic field. You should be energized by seeing projects through to completion, and driven to understand a problem beyond what is necessary for a solution.
Virtu has a flat hierarchy within which new ideas are well received; you will actively participate in the continuous improvement of our systems from day one.
