Through the rigorous application of the scientific method, A Priori aims to answer the world’s most difficult questions and predict the unpredictable. Founded in 2014 by Matthew Brumberg and Ryan Brumberg, A Priori is a youthful investment firm based in NYC/Greenwich. We are looking for a few brilliant minds to join our hunt for alpha. If an unsolved problem keeps you up at night and working in a start-up environment at a growing fund manager appeals to you, apply to one of our open positions or send your resume to email@example.com.
This position is for a professional problem solver. Your toolkit will include advanced mathematics, statistics, strong coding capabilities—and a love for creative and innovative solutions. Each day will present a fresh set of challenges that range from the computational to the logical to the data focused.
