We’re scientists and technologists who happen to trade. Many of us come from other, non-financial industries—academics from major institutions, software developers from top tech companies, engineers from leading hardware providers. We were tired of working in conventional academic, corporate or trading environments and the politics, internal competition and distractions so often prevalent in those places.
In Quantlab, we have created a different kind of financial trading firm. We’re a company that invests heavily in our people and technologies to get the best out of both. We leverage the most sophisticated techniques and advanced networks to stay ahead of the curve. We embrace full automation with experienced risk managers who carefully supervise our technology-driven trading. It’s an extremely exciting, creative field—we love what we do, and we’re always looking for new ground to break.
Our scientists drive sustained success in high-frequency trading by following a highly disciplined scientific process. We work continuously to expand our predictive models, diversify our strategy and market participation, and reduce latency. We’re founding members of the Modern Markets Initiative, industry pioneers who, as we pursue results, are proud of our contributions to global market liquidity.
Our software developers delight in working with the most sophisticated technology platforms, on the most interesting projects and problems, in the most exciting areas of finance. We bounce ideas off each other. We’re comfortable looking over each other’s shoulders and making suggestions. We’re team players who support and celebrate success of our teammates.
This place feels more like a technology company than a trading company. We work hard, and we have a lot of fun along the way.
We believe in applying the scientific process to uncover new market opportunities. We believe in technical excellence—we love problem solving and pushing the limits of technology. We believe in collaboration, which means putting team over ego, valuing feedback and sharing in the rewards. We believe in results, defined by the problem and objectives. And we believe in playing by the rules, acting with integrity and honesty in all things, at all times.
Do these beliefs fit yours? Are you a person who delights in turning a problem upside down, taking it apart and looking at it from every angle?
Are you always looking to beat your personal best? We’re looking to expand our team. If your answer to these questions is yes, you may be just what we’re looking for. Click here to explore career opportunities at Quantlab.

I have been working at Quantlab full-time
Flexible time! Great Perks! Very good co-workers!!!
Some team members do not work enough!
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quantlab (Houston, TX).
The first round is on campus interview. They asked about my research experience and some technical questions. Then they invited me onsite for a written exam. Once you pass the exam they will send the offer. Quantlab made the process easy and convenient. They also proceed fast.
