Prashant focuses on the firm’s growth into new markets and asset classes, Jason on the ongoing expansion and improvement of HRT’s trading technology, and Oaz on developing HRT’s trading algorithms. As leaders, they provide support and guidance to HRTers as the company grows, and new generations of talent take on more responsibility. All partners work with the code base on a daily basis.

HRT’s History

Past

HRT’s founding partners graduated from Harvard and MIT with degrees in computer science and mathematics, and founded HRT in 2002. Armed with programming skills and sharp quantitative minds, the founders hypothesized that by applying a fresh take to trading stocks, one that truly leverages the power of technology, they could meaningfully impact a world still dominated by manual operators. Very quickly, their algorithms saw success in the markets and HRT grew from their origins in US equities to a global, multi-asset class trading firm.

Present

Today HRT employs over 400 brilliant minds from a variety of mathematical, scientific, technical, and business disciplines. We trade on nearly all of the world’s electronic markets, and are a leading voice for fair and open markets. HRT’s comment letters can be found here.

Careers

Join Our Team

We’re always on the lookout for the best and brightest. Think you might be an awesome candidate?

Meet Jason, Prashant, and Oaz

 

When not making us all a little nervous with his penchant for daring hobbies, Jason is a true philomath. If there is something to learn and conquer, he will, especially if it involves programming. Jason seeks adventure on the water and in the sky; he is a world-champion sailor with a passion for aviation. When not in the office, Prashant can probably be found on a tennis court, or in Tribeca with his wife and two daughters. And our newest partner, Oaz, is above all else passionate about expanding HRT’s trading. Reading, swimming, and yoga are all activities Oaz enjoys when he’s not engrossed in exploring a new trading idea.

All of the partners embody HRT’s culture of hard work, ethics, and the tireless pursuit of opportunity.
