A recent crypto hedge fund launch, that have huge backing, a strong AUM + great performance figures, are looking to make a key non-investment hire.
The non-investment function currently solely consists of a COO (the wider business is made up of investment, quant and tech professionals). He is looking to hire a ‘number two’ to oversee operations (which is all outsourced), fund control / finance (oversight and analysis as opposed to hands-on) and take on ‘shadow COO’ responsibilities from him. Ahead of operations + fund accountant hires in 2023 (that the new hire will manage), you will work closely to the COO on key infrastructure development projects / build outs.
Candidates should have 5-10yrs buy-side operations experience, ideally having had a focus on quant / systematic trading strategies, albeit we are flexible. Crypto experience isn’t required, but a strong interest in crypto is. You must have a strong academic profile. Advanced tech skills are preferred.
The role will ideally pay up to an £85k base salary (potential flexibility). The hire will receive a mid-year discretionary bonus tied to individual performance + a year end formulaic bonus tied to fund performance (highly lucrative based on current performance figures).
