Algorithmic Developers

Algo Developers also called Quantitative Analysts or Quants, design and implement trading algorithms that apply artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning techniques for the purpose of allowing financial firms to price and trade securities. They are employed primarily by proprietary trading firms, investment banks, hedge funds, and other financial institutions that manage funds or have trading/investment operations.  Quants typically work directly with traders, providing them with algos for the purpose of pricing or trading.
