Simply Wall St is looking for an Quantitative Equity Analyst to join the Simply Wall St team and help us on the mission of transforming the way everyday people around the world invest, through empowering them to understand complicated financial data and make better, non-emotional decisions.
You’ll be managing and building the underlying financial analysis system that powers our research platform and News site.
Simply Wall St is a world-class product revolutionary in many ways – we use unique data visualizations and automation to make traditionally complex and complicated things simple and accessible. We are solving a very interesting problem in a very underserved space; the average retail investor massively underperforms the market but they really don't have to.
This is an opportunity to work at a well-funded, fast-growing Fintech startup with a global impact that is still in its early stage. We are growing really fast but the team is still very small – your work will directly impact every part of our product and will be used by millions of investors around the world every month.
This role would be best suited to somebody with equity research experience who also has programming knowledge for building analysis models.
Take some time to explore our product (including the News site!), if you get invited to an interview we expect you to know it inside out. We have an open source analysis model that also acts as an educational tool for our users.
We love suggestions on how we can improve our analysis, visualisations and user experience. How do you think our analysis system works? How would you improve it?
You’ve probably already figured our equity research system is entirely automated. The person for this role will be investigating and proposing improvements to our models, testing the improvements and finally implementing and monitoring them. Currently we have a company analysis model, an industry averages model and a portfolio analysis model. However as a startup this is constantly changing.
