StarMine products help them to more efficiently research companies, monitor their holdings, and generate investment ideas. We are known for "analyzing the analysts," predicting earnings surprises, and intelligently filtering sell-side research. The quant research team is gearing up to embark on research on new models in both the equity and fixed income arenas. The models will make use of novel and sophisticated techniques to build predictive models from textual data – data sources that have traditionally been underutilized in quantitative models because of the difficulty in generating quantitative signals from textual data.

If you are passionate about quantitative finance, have strong programming skills and knowledge and experience in sophisticated machine learning or text mining algorithms, are eager to learn, and excited about creating novel and robust quantitative models, then this is the job for you!

Primary responsibilities
• Review academic literature pertaining to quantitative modeling effort
