Hiring Process


Portfolio Managers

The application process involves a combination of online testing of critical problem-solving skills and programming, phone screens with our Directors of Portfolio Management and a series of onsite interviews with senior members across the firm.



To attract top talent, we hire researchers through multiple channels, including campus and lateral recruitment. Applicants are screened on their academic and professional record, and progress through online testing and a series of interviews with senior research team members. All applicants are evaluated on problem solving, raw intelligence, creativity, research experience, programming / technical skills and general fit.



In efforts to raise the technology bar, we review and screen candidates using a multi-phased approach, which includes online technology exams, technical phone screening and onsite interviews, during which candidates undergo further technical evaluations and collaborate with team members from various technology groups.
