Built by coders. Led by coders.
At Hudson River Trading (HRT) we are mathematicians, computer scientists, statisticians, physicists and engineers. We research and develop automated trading algorithms using advanced mathematical techniques. We have built one of the world's most sophisticated computing environments, and our researchers are at the forefront of innovation in the world of algorithmic trading.
Since 2002, HRT has grown from a small group of founding partners who brought a fresh, scientific take to trading stocks, into a global company of over 600 brilliant minds from a variety of disciplines — from highly technical to deeply mathematical to the liberal arts. We are critical thinkers and eager automaters, chasing new solutions to any problem we encounter. We value openness and transparency, and celebrate great ideas from HRT veterans and new hires alike. At HRT we’re friends and colleagues – whether we are sharing a meal, playing the latest board game, or writing elegant code. We embrace a culture of togetherness that extends far beyond the walls of our office.
We trade on nearly all of the world’s electronic markets, and are a leading voice for fair and open markets. Our internal code of ethics far exceeds the expectations of the regulatory environment in which we operate. We are conscientious market participants advocating for fair and transparent markets for everyone. This philosophy influences every aspect of our research.
