How much bous, base, sign on and equity?
Role : Algorithmic Engineer C++, Python
New grad: 150k base, 100k bonus (25k/quarter), 50k sign on is typical
Specialist person who’s really good at FPGAs/ML/other things: 500-600k TC; 150-200k base, 200-300k bonus, 100k sign on
Bonuses grow about 10% per quarter.
Pretty hard to hit 1M TC at HRT unless you’re good/have been around for at least 4-6 years.
Jump/DE Shaw comp way more. I know a guy who’s 3 years out of undergrad who makes 975k there (Jump Core Strategies). At Shaw, there are PMs who are 35 who take home over 3M/yr.
