Job Description

Newly founded, AGITProp is an AI-driven quant research firm that is pushing the boundaries of algorithmic trading.

Quant firms have leveraged AI and ML for years, but the increasing complexity and scale of global markets demand a more comprehensive and integrated approach.

At AGITProp, we are leveraging the latest advances and insights from foundation and large language models (LLM) to build novel models across multiple modalities. We have ambitious growth plans and are searching for the best and brightest minds from across tech and finance to help us achieve our aim.

About The Role

We seek an exceptional Senior AI Engineer with a strong machine learning and AI background to join our team. In addition to exceptional programming skills and knowledge of data structures and algorithms, the ideal candidate should also be proficient in the mathematical underpinnings of deep learning and deeply understand modern AI techniques.

As a Senior AI Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, developing, and implementing cutting-edge AI models.


  • Work closely with the Director of AI research to design, develop, implement, and train very large AI models.
  • Build and maintain efficient, scalable, and reliable AI infrastructure, tools, and pipelines to support the deployment of machine learning models in collaboration with the MLOps team.
  • Continuously research and stay current with the latest advancements in AI, machine learning, and data science.
  • Contribute to the growth of the AI team by sharing knowledge, providing mentorship, and fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration.


  • Master or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, or a related field preferred.
  • Minimum six years of experience in AI engineering, machine learning, or a similar role, preferably within the finance industry or at a leading technology company.
  • Strong expertise in algorithms, data structures, multivariate calculus, and linear algebra.
  • Proficient in Python, TensorFlow, PyTorch, or similar languages and frameworks, with experience writing CUDA kernels and profiling GPU code a plus.
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to work effectively in cross-functional teams and present complex ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences.

Nice to have

  • Knowledge of finance, quantitative methods, and trading strategies is a strong plus.

We appreciate there isn’t a lot of information to go off from a company perspective. However, we can be very open about this and what we are looking to achieve throughout the screening and interview phase of the recruitment process.

At AGITProp, we believe the power of AI lies in its diversity, just like the teams who build it. We are committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment where individuals from all backgrounds and experiences can thrive. We understand that a diverse workforce leads to richer perspectives, more innovative solutions, and ultimately, better results.

If this position is something that you are interested in, to apply, please submit your resume, brief cover letter, and any relevant publications or research work that might be of interest.

If this role isn’t exactly what you are looking for but feel you could add value and are interested in hearing more, please check out any other relevant roles across the company. We have several openings and would love to speak to anyone who has a background in quantitative finance and AI.

Please let the company know that you found this position on this Job Board as a way to support us, so we can keep posting cool jobs.
