This role represents an exciting opportunity to join a rapidly growing business with institutional backing and a proven track record in delivering a suite of financial services to a market-leading standard.

The successive candidate will join Coremont’s Quantitative Analyst team with a remit to develop and enhance our core Commodities & Equities Quant analytics library (written in C++) and our front office tools.
