Job Description : We are looking for Java developers in Beijing, China to join a small team in building a technology-centric hedge fund from the ground up.
You will be working with a small group of talented individuals building a black-box trading platform that executes liquidity and quantitative strategies for trading equities.
This entails building software that will include quantitative analysis, trade execution, and risk management. This is a tremendous opportunity to gain in-
depth exposure to the financial services, investment management, and trading fields while building a platform from the ground-up.
Blue Basin Capital Management, LLC will be establishing a technology center in Beijing to undertake this endeavor. Beijing has internationally renowned universities as well as a growing technology and startup community that is beginning to be recognized worldwide.
However, advanced financial services companies are largely absent from Beijing, which we believe presents an opportunity for us to attract top talent that is interested in breaking into the financial technology space.
We believe the talent pool in Beijing is capable of the complex undertaking of building a technology-centric trading platform.
We will be providing in-depth hands-on mentoring on financial and trading concepts to team members.
Qualifications & Requirements : The founder of Blue Basin is Edward Tolson, who will be on the ground in Beijing leading the development of the trading platform.
Applicants will be working directly with Mr. Tolson. From 2003 to 2012, Mr. Tolson served as Managing Director of JP Morgan Chase’s hedge fund subsidiary Highbridge Capital Management, LLC, a hedge fund manager with $30 billion USD in assets under management.
Prior to joining Highbridge, Mr. Tolson co-founded a proprietary high-frequency trading company. Mr. Tolson has a Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he graduated tied at top of class.
Mr. Tolson has conversational Chinese language abilities.
Ideal candidates have proficiency in the Java programming language. We are seeking to staff junior, mid, and senior level positions.
Bachelor degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field are preferred but not required. Professional or personal experience in investing or financial services is beneficial, but not required.
Because Mr. Tolson has only conversational Chinese language abilities, applicants must have at least basic English language skills, with advanced skills preferred.
Benefits & Welfare : negotiable
