Home Based Quant Job?- Does it exist?

December 4th, 2015, 7:00 am

Hey GuysWas just wondering if you are aware of any website or any company that offers the opportunity to do quant jobs from home. It could be a project based ( 6 months project for example) or full time jobs.Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.Many ThanksS

There are some remote consultancy positions I've seen but they are few and far between. Data scientist roles for analytic rather then "traditional" quant roles seem to have more of them.Both generally require a good track record and experience.

Only one I remember offhand that's dedicated, but only one data job listed it seems: https://weworkremotely.com/But then again the majority of the WFH roles tend to be development unless it's a dedicated WFH company.Headhunters might know of some for this. Part WFH might work too, that's been on the increase in a few banks in the last few years.

Software companies often allow you to work from home, even if the home is in another province :)

I have heard that Calypso gives its quants the possibility to work from home, at least some of the time.
