Research Scientist

Edgestream Partners is a tight-knit team of scientists, engineers, and business professionals who devote our talents to developing quantitative models of financial markets and using them to trade systematically around the world and around the clock.

Edgestream’s culture has more in common with research laboratories and technology startups than with traditional finance. We prize curiosity, creativity, diligence, and intellectual honesty. We focus on the long term, working together to build elegant and general systems that endure and scale as we grow. And we incentivize our employees to cooperate and share ideas, because we know that compounding our efforts magnifies our achievements. The result is a company where smart, dedicated effort can have a major impact.

We’ve been in the hedge fund business since 2003, and we’re still growing. We’re looking for talented and driven people who can grow with us in the years ahead.
