Careers at Vola Dynamics

Vola Dynamics solves the hardest problems in quantitative finance, i.e. holy-grail problems that have been around for decades. We have developed, for example, the fastest and most robust pricer and fitter for options trading in the industry.

We are growing rapidly and our clients already include many of the world’s leading prop shops, hedge funds, banks and pension funds. We are now expanding our offering in many dimensions, to become the go-to provider of all computationally and mathematically demanding analytics, data, and services for volatility and derivatives modeling.

If you love deep research involving the interplay of mathematical modeling, large-scale data analysis and cutting edge algorithm design in a modern C++ library — or to build the software engineering, data, and research infrastructure around it — we want to hear from you!

We are hiring for several Developer and Quant positions.

Other Roles

We’d also love to hear from you if you believe you can contribute to our growth by helping the CEO and leadership team of Vola in managing and developing all aspects of the business. The role would initially fall somewhere along the Chief of Staff to Business Development spectrum, with the potential to evolve into e.g. a COO role in the long term.

We are open to candidates of all levels of seniority, and your background could be as varied as trader, management consultant, start-up founder, enterprising EA, or in business development/analysis, to give just some examples.

Our main criterion is the potential of a substantial long-term impact. Therefore, we’re looking for someone who is detail-oriented, organized, collaborative, possesses a can-do attitude, high integrity and excellent verbal and written communication skills, as well as a keen interest in all aspects of running a business like ours. A quantitative or technical background, ideally with some knowledge of options or derivatives, would be a significant advantage.

Salary ($80k-$400k) + Bonus + Benefits. This salary range reflects the fact that the title and level of responsibility for this role are highly dependent on a candidate’s fit and experience.
