Trader

Arrington Capital is expanding its team and hiring a Trader to manage the liquid portfolio of its hedge fund, which includes the major cryptocurrencies as well as liquid tokens from the fund’s portfolio of private investments. The liquid portfolio is primarily long-focused crypto, but the trader should have a deep working knowledge of perpetual futures, options, margin trading and other derivative products and experience applying leverage to portfolios. As a trader at Arrington Capital, you will work closely with a small team of seasoned technology entrepreneurs and crypto investors. 

The trader will provide the hedge fund partners with market commentary on Bitcoin, derivatives and alt coin sectors. The trader will research and propose trade strategies as well as run simulations to track and measure risks across market scenarios. Recommend timing and degree of leverage that is appropriate to apply to specific trade strategies. The trader will use trade sheets to propose trade parameters such as portfolio risk, entry and exit parameters and invalidation statistics, and actively monitor open positions.

Trade execution is conducted primarily through leading third-party OTC desks, but will also involve some direct work on exchanges and defi platforms.

The Fund is remote-first but being located in Miami, Florida or an east coast US time zone is preferred. Intense, unconventional and flexible work hours are required for any successful trader candidate.

The ideal candidate has experience analyzing and investing into crypto in both professional and personal capacities. They are hungry self-starters and deeply curious about crypto. It’s a strong plus if you can demonstrate a track record or deep technical knowledge, whether it be coding smart contracts, yield farming or publishing insightful content. Compensation includes a salary and discretionary, performance-based annual bonus.

  • Analyzing and tracking market catalysts

Skills & Qualifications
