I’ve seen a lot of Project Manager roles in HFT/Hedge Funds but no product roles so I’m curious - who gives Quant or Devs direction? Is it “waterfall” and still project based as everything is tested and retested internally?
Is that why FAANG avoids HFT/HFs?
I’m eager to hear from Jane Street, Two Sigma, Citadel, DE Shaw, Tower, and others.
Maybe some clarification if product exists in your org, your experience with it (vs project), TC, experience, and location? Thanks!

Most teams are small enough that we don't use any formal methodology. Pick off tasks as time allows, with deployment varying mostly between continuously and weekly, with a thin tail of less frequent deploys.
