  • Leverage our (fundamental) data & models, by designing, testing, and developing (systematic) trading strategies.
  • Build quantitative models to support Market Research (e.g. yield prediction, demand forecasting).
  • Investigate and extract signals from our internal and external datasets to create a more data-driven decision-making environment throughout Cefetra (e.g. logistics).
  • Reconcile trade confirmations & statements.

  • Strong mathematical and statistical skills
