APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. We received 270 plus - and we are finalizing a short list...
We are a small, fairly rapidly growing hedge fund with a good record and very few staff. More precisely we are a long-value equity fund with an esoteric and successful short book on the side.
Our record is well into the top-decile for hedge funds globally – and we intend on keeping it there. We are idea driven and risk-management obsessed.
We are happier hiring outside the traditional hiring loop. A science background with genuine interest in investment for instance is preferred over investment experience. Some unconventional combinations (computer science and criminology for instance) will be looked on favorably.
Most - but not all of the work will be directed to identifying short-sale candidates however an interest in more conventional value investing would be useful too.
Programming skills are a requirement. Experience with technology that allows structured queries and searches on datasets (financial and non-financial) are a major advantage.
A working interest in epistemology is also useful.
Applications by email via the blog email email@example.com - or through our website - www.brontecapital.com.
PS. This post will be removed when we have found the right candidate. I have no intention of being inundated with CVs forever.
PPS. I have not taken advice on Australian immigration law but my understanding is that the law requires that I actively try to recruit an Australian and - failing that - I may open the offer up more widely. This is the path that I am taking anyway (pending contrary advice). Remote work is possible - but personally I have been unsuccessful in the past trying to manage it - so it is unlikely.
