Job Description

The Credit QR team is responsible for developing and maintaining models for valuation, risk, PL calculations, as well as quoting and market making algorithms and analysis tools for the Global Spread business. The responsibilities of the team span the full range from new model specification, going through model approval, implementation of model in library, to integration into risk and PL systems.



The opportunity is to join our London team as an associate or VP, with a focus on models and infrastructure for the corporate bond business. The role is spanning all aspects of corporate bond QR coverage, from the mathematical modelling to the development of risk and PL reports in our risk system, Athena.

Excellent communication skills are required in our interaction with trading, technology, and control functions. A strong interest in good software design principles is a requirement as well. A Ph.D. in a numerate subject from a top academic institution is a plus, but not an absolute requirement.
