Intern in a Global Market strats team. I was implementing features for a client within a smart router used to execute trades optimally across different venues. This primarily involved understanding the actual algo/strategy i was going to be adding, getting familiar with the codebase surrounding the area i was going to be working in and then adding the feature using C++. Also spent a lot of time networking with employees and other interns to find out more about the different sections of the firm.

As a summer analyst in the sales team, I took on the role as a sales support. This includes supporting the sales people in their daily tasks.
