Tesseract, a diversified digital asset start-up, is looking to expand our DeFi team. You will work at the cutting edge of finance exploring and acting on opportunities in DeFi. You will be collaborating with other DeFi team members to create strategies that we can use for capital deployment. As your work will require an understanding of different blockchain-related concepts and functionalities of DeFi protocols, you are not scared of working with technical subjects.
Currently, we are deploying institutional funds to different protocols that offer enticing risk/reward ratios. We are constantly expanding our strategy universe with more complex options, such as DEX arbitrage and liquidity provision optimisation. In the future, we plan on pushing into DeFi further by launching our own protocol. You will work with our DeFi team on the design side, and if skillset allows, also on the production side.
We encourage master/doctoral students to apply for this position.
- Research and keep track of new developments in the DeFi space
- Complete due diligence on protocols and their opportunities
- Work with the DeFi team on crafting, iterating, and executing new strategies on different protocols
- Track and manage our positions and exposure
- Suggest and audit new proprietary trading strategies
What we expect from you
- Experience in a technical or quantitative field, perhaps from an internship
- Interest in decentralised finance and financial markets
- In-depth understanding of blockchains, especially Ethereum
- Experience in using DeFi protocols & Layer 2 solutions
- Intermediate programming skills (e.g. Python)
