London, UK | Singapore
Ripple is looking for an intern to support the Trading & Markets team in all things related to Crypto and FX trading, liquidity and quantitative analysis. You will get a chance to see the inner workings of one of Crypto’s oldest firms and see a team of traders and quants apply institutional trading techniques to an emerging market. You will also get a chance to build on your understanding of macro forces and what that means for asset prices, market microstructure, advanced statistical analysis and get an opportunity to meet some of the brightest minds in Crypto within the firm as well as at conferences.
The ideal candidate will be hyper focused on detail, have an understanding of financial markets and have proficient data analysis skills. The ability to clearly present complex ideas, data and solutions is a highly valued skill within the Trading & Markets team. We prefer a candidate that is proficient with Python for data analysis or another major data analysis language as that marries well with our internal technology stack.
Among other aspects, the internship will be structured in a way that allows you to be relatively autonomous. A project will be discussed with the successful candidate but it will not be the sole focus of the entire 10 weeks. We encourage interns to really immerse themselves in the Crypto landscape may it be through regional conferences, cross-functional team interaction and participation in company events. Assessment of a successful internship will be based on not only quality of output but also feedback from peers, communication skills and leadership traits. We are not looking for a foot soldier but rather someone who can stand their own and potentially grow within the organization down the road.
Interviews will test market knowledge of traditional concepts as well as crypto concepts, there may also be a data based case study. We expect interns to visit the office at least part of the week.
