Doesn't look like 2Sigma, Citadel, or Jane St have offices in Tokyo, but I'd guess with it being a big finance hub there should be some similar opportunities there. Looking for high comp opportunities since Tokyo software eng pays much less than SF market.

- Yeah kinda depends. At my firm we work maybe 40 - 45 for most roles. Two Sigma is also 40 - 45 for quant devs, quant analysts and quant researchers. Back office mostly the same. Citadel is 45 - 50 for front office dev/research, but 50 - 55 for back office devs. Jane Street is basically like Two Sigma.Oct 31, 2018 3
- Larger firms have forced attrition to keep the profit per head smaller, for incentive comp reasons (among other things). Smaller firms with large AUM tend to have conversely much lower turnover and really focus on making it extremely difficult to get into.
I'm not aware of a forced attrition policy in place at Two Sigma or Jane Street.Oct 31, 2018 4
- Indeed tookerjerbGoldman Sachs has a huge office there, I hear they pay well. Indeed also has an office in Tokyo and pays 30-40% above market for the right talent.
- If you can get a book and be responsible for good PnL, pay anywhere on the street is amazing,
- You would most likely have to come up with a trading idea that doesn't compete with your team (and perhaps other teams) and be the right person to make it happen. In the end, it's a very political process. You have to think about how giving you this PnL opportunity affects the rest of the troupe. If it's a win for your management, and it won't cause anyone they care about to leave, you have a shot. Doing important work and having your own leverage helps a good deal.Nov 2, 2018 0
