Working at Wintermute:

We are currently seeking an Algorithmic Trader with proficient coding skills in Python and a keen interest in hft, liquidity provision, and crypto trading. As an Algorithmic Trader at Wintermute, you will have the autonomy to manage your own trading activities from the beginning. You will have the opportunity to develop your own trading algorithms and strategies while receiving guidance and advice from experienced traders and developers, including the management team. This role offers a high level of independence, responsibility, and accelerated learning. There are no legacy systems, corporate bureaucracy, or layers of approval hindrances. Your ability to make an impact is solely determined by you, and your incentives, including equity, align completely with the company's goals.


Upon completion of a brief training period, your main responsibilities will include enhancing existing strategies, introducing new trading products, and improving the technological aspects of our trading systems. This will involve analyzing substantial volumes of trading and transaction data, generating insights, prioritizing them, and devising solutions based on your findings. You can anticipate immediate contributions to the profit and loss (P&L) and will be encouraged to explore innovative ideas and strategies. Further technical details will be provided during the interview process. It is essential to note that although quantitative and coding proficiency is necessary, this role primarily focuses on the business and trading aspects rather than research.

Hard Skills Requirements:

Proficient in Python, with 1-3 years of coding experience demonstrated through work, study, or personal projects (testing will be conducted)

Excellent quantitative and analytical skills (testing will be conducted)

Trading knowledge is not a prerequisite, but a strong willingness and curiosity to learn about algorithmic, high-frequency, quantitative, and liquidity provision trading is crucial

Strong interest and curiosity in blockchain, crypto, and DeFi, keeping informed about significant news and advancements in the crypto world

Other Requirements:

Maintains an ownership mindset, prioritizing ultimate results such as short and long-term P&L for the company and strategically growing the business, rather than seeking short-term gains

Enjoys problem-solving and takes satisfaction in observing successful implementation of their products, possessing the readiness to undertake any necessary tasks (trading, coding, data analysis, collaboration)

Exhibits determination, ambition, and humility, and is committed to hard work and continuous learning

Appreciates a merit-based environment, where evaluation is based on delivered results

Embraces an entrepreneurial mindset, as opposed to a rigid 9-to-5 mentality, and is prepared to work non-standard hours as a part of a high-growth startup operating in the 24/7 crypto industry

Thrives in a team-oriented environment, working primarily from our London office (at least 70% of the time) rather than a fully remote arrangement.
