    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The insight was pretty focused on the SDE roles, but I was also given insight to the possibility of applying for the Quantitative Researcher/Trader role. I had the opportunity to talk with SDE Graduates and I found it very interesting to hear the different specializations they chose, which gave me the impression that there is a great variety of options for the SDE role.
