Collective2 Job Openings

Position title:

Data Scientist / Quant Dude (or Dudette)

Work from anywhere. Telecommute a-okay.


Predict which Collective2 strategies will succeed. Predict which will fail.


You, relaxing

You, during a moment of relaxation.

The challenge

Collective2 is an open platform where thousands of people post their trading strategies, and issue go-forward buy/sell recommendations as they occur.

What if you had access to the entire Collective2 database? Every strategy, every histroical trade, every buy and sell, since 2001?

Would you be able to predict which Collective2 strategies will perform well? Which will fail?

Who you are

You are a quant, an algo developer, a data scientist. You understand trading, of course.

You also are able to program.

You have experience taking a steaming pile of turd that some people call “data” — most of it not particularly clean or well-structured — and turning it into something well-formed and beautiful. And then using this beautiful stuff to make testable predictions.

You have experience at a hedge fund or CTA. You have developed and tested trading strategies. You are fluent in English.


This is a contract position at a scrappy, under-funded startup company. Read this as: Compensation will be “creative,” and will include a large performance-based component.

If things go well, and you love C2, there will be an opportunity to expand your role within the company. This is a great, low-risk way to test the waters at a fintech startup before formally committing or jumping ship.

Send your CV and any thoughts (in confidence) to, subject: “Data Scientist.”
