SIG Trading Intern
SIG’s trading internship is a unique opportunity to learn about quantitative trading. Our interns work on a trading desk in the morning and afternoon, but they step off the desk daily to receive classroom education in trading and decision science. The combination of desk and classroom training provides interns with the best preparation possible for careers in quant trading. Students with a STEM background will learn how SIG uses decision-science, game theory and technology to make trading decisions. The goal of the program is to provide interns with a deep exposure to trading, so they can decide if it is what they want to pursue full-time. While most of our trading opportunities are in the Philadelphia area, some of our full-time traders work in our Chicago or New York offices.
