Quantitative Trader

Tzu-Ming Kuo

My eyes open and I know it’s not yet 6am as my alarm hasn’t rung – I check the alerts channel to make sure all trading strategies are functioning properly and that I hadn’t missed anything urgent

Oh good, only minor issues from a new push. All fixed within 15 minutes and I head into work. My job is to lead the flow business and also oversee the trading across all other strategies at Kronos.

I used to trade a variety of traditional assets but nothing compares to the crazy volatility of crypto. As a trader, I naturally am attracted to fast moving markets and high volatility – it gives me more room to craft profitable strategies.

We are constantly looking for awesome programmers.

I graduated from National Taiwan University (NTU) with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics and a Master’s degree in Financial Engineering. Throughout my time at university, I also served in the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica (ASIAA), publishing highly cited articles, which laid the foundation for modeling the evolution of dust content in high-redshift galaxies
