Algo Internship – Summer 2021 at Hudson River Trading (New York, NY)

We are currently accepting applications for summer 2021 internships, and we will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis starting in July 2020.

HRT is seeking exceptional, full-time students across all degree levels to join our algo summer internship program. Algo developers at HRT focus on research and implementation of automated trading strategies. As an intern, you will have the opportunity to rotate with our high-frequency trading, multi-frequency trading, and/or machine learning teams. In close collaboration with your mentors, you will apply sophisticated quantitative modeling techniques to understand and predict market behavior and write software to improve our trading strategies.

We are looking for quantitatively-driven and practically-minded programmers, scientists, and mathematicians who want to work on the most challenging problems in our field, enjoy collaboration, and hate the idea of climbing corporate ladders. 


  • A fast-paced summer training program to give you an introduction to the quantitative trading industry. You will have the opportunity to get exposure to our high-frequency trading, multi-frequency trading, and/or machine learning teams.
  • Leverage our proprietary infrastructure (Python/C++) in conjunction with third-party tools to conduct quantitative research and data analysis.
  • Use machine learning and time series techniques to derive novel insights regarding market behavior from large and complex datasets.
  • Work on real projects in close collaboration with experienced researchers, traders, and developers.
  • Use our world class compute cluster to run simulations and crunch data
  • Build predictive models for financial markets using a combination of market and non-market data.
  • Participate in seminars that will give you an overview of markets and HRT’s trading philosophy.
  • Enjoy a curriculum of talks, trading games, mentorships, and social events throughout the summer.


  • You are a full-time undergraduate, masters, or PhD student in a quantitative discipline (e.g. math, physics, computer science, statistics, or a related program)
  • You will be graduating and looking for full-time roles in 2022.
  • Experience programming in Python is a must; C++ is a plus for those interested in high-frequency trading.
  • You have experience with statistical analysis, numerical programming, or machine learning in Python, R, or MATLAB.
  • A passion for applying quantitative models and technology toward solving real-world problems.
  • Strong communication skills.
