What is the highest base you have seen in a HFT or quant non-pm role?

I am guessing it tops around 500k including signon.

    Just curious, why do you care about base as opposed to bonus?

      Firms spend 1/3 of their time in recession and paying zero bonus, it hasn't happened recently but will. Just three years ago banks weren't just deferring, they were laying off a quarter of their staff.

    It's meaningless to include sign on. Have seen multi-million sign on bonuses

      That's interesting, for what roles? I can see that for PMs but it would dwarf your base otherwise.

      QR, PM mostly
      It varies firm by firm but quant usually has higher base and lower bonus than pms
