Career Opportunities

Variant Perception works with the most sophisticated investors and funds. We are a small team by design and our research philosophy is “man + machine beats machine”. 

Our investment process is empirical and repeatable, which means we use a lot of data and build code-based models to scale our research to cover many markets and asset classes. We are known for building innovative models and producing outstanding analysis.

We are not hiring for specific roles at the moment, but if you want to work at VP and can add value to our investment process, please email us at info@variantperception.com. Send us your resume and be specific about how you can improve VP.

Software Developer

We are looking for a developer to help us scale.  Formal experience in finance is helpful, but a passion for investing is the key.

Your role on the team

  • Develop our client portal further. We want to make our tools, analysis and research more widely available and easily accessible to all clients.
  • Help maintain and grow our data engineering and data science capabilities. 
  • Work with analysts to build and deploy new investment models, or convert existing ones from Excel, VBA and R to python.

Are you a good fit?

You believe it's possible to understand and anticipate markets. You will not like this job if you believe in efficient markets.

We have big goals for our team and rely on each other to achieve them. To be successful at VP you must be self-motivated, have trust in teammates, be forgiving of mistakes, be open-minded and above all enjoy figuring out problems – often from scratch.

There are many projects in the pipeline, each requiring new skills. You should enjoy continuous learning.

Valuable skills and experience:

  • Build/Deploy (git, Github Actions, Docker, Kubernetes, and AWS/Cloud ecosystems)
  • Web technologies (React, Angular, Typescript, Serverless/AWS Lambda)
  • Data Engineering (SQL, Postgres, Snowflake ecosystem, Airbyte)
  • Data Analysis (Python, Pandas, Dask, R, statistical/ML packages)
