STUDENT JOB AT INTERNATIONAL FINTECH START-UP

Symetrics is a European FinTech50 startup with offices in Apeldoorn, Breukelen and London. We build SyMath, an integrated risk management application platform. SyMath's core consists of a macro-economic scenario generator that allows asset managers to conduct a range of in-depth risk analyses. Examples are stress-testing, risk-return analysis and asset and derivatives valuation. Our clients include (central) banks, pension funds, insurers and asset managers.

We model behavior of macro-economic agents such as central banks, investors and consumers using nonlinear dynamics (chaos theory). This allows, among other things, simulation of financial crises. Our approach reduces data-dependency and improves model output in terms of realism and relevancy. SyMath is based on Wolfram Mathematica technology.

For our Software Development team in Breukelen we are looking for three talented students in econometrics or mathematics with programming experience (Wolfram Mathematica).

You will join a team of econometricians with strong programming skills. Our Software Development team builds a broad financial risk application platform satisfying modern IT standards. Areas of activity include algorithmics, cloud computing, dataset management, testing and user interface design. You will have the chance to gain experience in these fields. Also, you will be working with Symetrics’ clients, including global banks, asset managers and institutional investors.

Job requirements:
· Studying Econometrics, Actuarial Sciences, Mathematics, or Computer Science
· Some programming experience, preferably in Wolfram Mathematica
· Experienced in or an interest in macro-economic topics and financial risk management
· Good communicator, flexible, positive critical thinker and a team-player
· Analytic and accurate
· Result-oriented, pro-active, high energy-level and a good sense of humor

If you think you meet this profile, we invite you to send us your application letter.

Compensation and benefits:
· 16 to 24 hours a week
· Competitive salary
· A dynamic and challenging working environment in a diverse team
· Room for personal development, creativity and initiative
· A unique opportunity to be actively involved in building the next generation of risk management models.
