Trading Intern - Chicago (Expression of Interest)

Trading Intern - Chicago (Expression of Interest)


SIG’s trading internship provides a distinctive opportunity to learn about quantitative trading. Splitting their day between working on a trading desk and education in a classroom setting, interns receive the best preparation possible for careers in quant trading. During their time on the trading floor, interns will be fully imbedded within a trading desk, working side by side with an experienced trader who will serve as a mentor. While in education, interns will receive industry-leading training in options theory and decision science from traders fully dedicated to trader development. Students with a STEM background can leverage their quantitative skills and learn how SIG uses game theory, decision science, and cutting-edge technology to make trading decisions. The goal of the program is to provide interns with a deep exposure to trading, so they can decide if it is what they want to pursue full-time.


Opportunities as a trading intern will be available in our Philadelphia Area, New York and Chicago offices.
