When implementing small changes or building new model and adding new (fundamental) data sources into strategies you always could get expert opinion and have an open discussion with traders who are on top of the market.

Your challenge? Create and build the superior process flow that allows to run automated strategies with minima of human interaction.

Your goal? Create a robust automated trading environment and strategy that is capable of self-operating under the dynamical and continuous changing circumstances.

As a Junior Quantitative Developer, you will first learn the process and the tools being used. You will be educated the basic concepts of building a trading strategy.
