What we do

21strategies is a B2B deep tech company named “Tech Innovator Germany 2021” by KPMG.

We leverage ML/AI for strategic and tactical decision-making under uncertain conditions and in complex situations to change how organizations make decisions. Our flagship AI HEDGE21 fuses internal data from international trading companies with Al-generated market insights to compute optimal hedging activities protecting a firm’s bottom line from price swings in currency and commodity markets.

We are looking for a motivated and highly self-driven data enthusiast to complement our tech team which hosts outstanding thinkers and engineers.

  • You can communicate complex models in a simple manner to a non-technical audience of both clients and data providers, in both verbal and written formats
  • You work diligently in a hybrid working environment with conceptual guidance in an Agile development process

Your qualifications

  • Master degree or PhD in a data-related field like Physics, Mathematics, Data Science, Statistics, Computer Science, or any related technical discipline
  • 5+ years senior experience in the field of ML/AI or related areas
  • An understanding of equity, fixed income, alternatives, derivative markets and analytics, and B2B trading venues
  • Experienced in programming languages such as Julia, Python, and C++
  • A friendly and highly professional attitude when being involved in client relations
  • Pride in 21strategies’ technologies and capabilities, of which you will both be part of as well as contribute to
  • Bonus: Experience in Financial Services or Defense industry
  • Willingness to self-contained work from remotely, yet very reliably and responsibly
  • Native German skills as well as business level English language skills

What we provide

  • The feel of a dynamic and international startup with highly advanced math solutions to optimize algorithmic decision making under uncertainty
  • Exciting and proprietary ML/AI research and development of both capital market and security-focused applications
  • A very team-oriented, but business-focused culture
  • A demanding tech team relying on strong ML/AI capabilities to solve complex optimization challenges and control problems, wrapping them into large operational computer systems
  • Hybrid working with flexible working time, but regular physical update/planning meetings and mentoring calls
  • A competitive salary and the opportunity to be part of 21strategies’ growth
