Trading Intern - Sydney Office

Overview

This internship will run from December 2019 through January 2020 and is available to students attending a university in Australia or New Zealand. Interns spend time in both our Sydney office and our Philadelphia headquarters to take full advantage of the trading and educational resources that SIG has to offer our interns. Students with a STEM or Actuarial background will learn how SIG uses decision-science, game theory and technology to make trading decisions. The goal of the program is to provide interns with a deep exposure to trading, so they can decide if it is what they want to pursue full-time.

SIG Perks

  • Roundtrip airfare and housing accommodations provided during the portion spent in Philadelphia
  • Relaxed dress code: jeans and sneakers are the norm
  • Food, beverages, and snacks available all day
  • A gym with cardio, cross fit and strength machines
