Hi all, fellow chipy lurker and one time chipy presenter here.  I left
academia fairly recently (October 2005) for a research programmer job
at Tradelink, an investment and trading firm in downtown Chicago.  We
use python extensively here, and are looking to add to our team.  See
below for more details -- you can reply in person to me or to the
email address listed below.

We are looking to hire a programmer/researcher to help research and
develop trading ideas, and to develop infrastructure to put these
trading strategies into production.  We are looking for someone who is
bright and curious with a quantitative background and a strong
interest in writing good code and building systems that work.
Familiarity with basic probability and statistics is a definite plus.
We do not require a financial background, but are looking for someone
with an enthusiasm to dive into this industry and learn a lot.  We do
most of our data modeling and production software in python, utilizing
mostly open source tools.  We have a lot of ideas to test and
hopefully put into production, and you'll be working with a fast paced
and friendly small team of traders and programmers.


  Please submit a resume and cover letter to qsjobs at trdlnk.com.  In
  your cover letter, please address how your background, experience
  and skills will fit into the position described above.  We are
  looking for a full-time, on-site candidate only.
