Deep Learning Researcher

    • New York, NY


HRT understands that deep learning has the ability to shape the future of our field and as such, we are invested in not only building out a team of the best and brightest deep learning researchers, but also providing them with the freedom to explore and pursue their own ideas. As a deep learning researcher on our Algo Labs team you will work with vast amounts of market data to research and test your theories as a part of HRT’s live trading strategies. Deep learning researchers will put theory into practice almost immediately, and will impact the landscape of global financial markets.

Leaders at HRT are coders, mathematicians, and researchers which means that our environment is collaborative and academic. We encourage idea sharing and use of the most cutting edge technology. Like the rest of HRT, the Algo Labs team uses standard open source tools (TensorFlow, Keras). We also understand that deep learning, especially with the low latency which we require, presents unique technical challenges and we are not afraid to invest in building our own infrastructure. Additionally, as a deep learning researcher you will work alongside the best in the field in optimization and other machine learning areas as well as financial experts, exposing you to a variety of different backgrounds and skill-sets to add to your research.
