Continuously looking for new talent
A successful and thriving quantitative research effort is fundamental to Aspect’s business – it ensures the continuous evolution of the alpha-generating models which deliver investment returns to our clients.
Our Researchers maintain and develop mathematical investment models. Working primarily in MATLAB, they deal with a wide range of projects covering Signal Generation, Portfolio Construction and Market Execution in a collegiate and collaborative atmosphere.
The Software Development Team designs, builds and maintains Aspect’s highly automated execution systems which runs from front office trading to back office reconciliations. The trading systems are Java-based. Back end systems include SQL Server, JMS and distributed caching technologies. We use IntelliJ and Git when developing.
Our development process is agile, highly collaborative and focuses heavily on continuous improvement. Daily stand-ups, retrospectives, pairing and TDD are standard. We are always experimenting with new technologies, techniques and ways of working.
At the heart of Aspect’s core values lies our commitment to our clients, as well as to fairness, integrity, respect and the love of a challenge. Whether it be a role in Investor Relations, Legal, Compliance, Operations, Finance or HR, we can provide the opportunity to work in an exciting, stimulating environment where employees are given real opportunities to demonstrate their value and further their careers.
