Operations Analyst

Astral is looking for an Operations Analyst to operate its groundbreaking platform and solve the electronic trading industry’s toughest problems.

Global brokers and institutional asset managers bring their most important trading and technology challenges to Astral. You will synthesize disconnected sources of clients’ trading data into a single cohesive library, develop a comprehensive understanding of the clients’ challenges, and offer clear and practical insights to resolve them.

Delivering practical insights requires an inquisitive and analytical mindset, a strong intuition for product, and a high degree of empathy with users inside and outside the firm.

On a typical day, your first responsibility will be to coordinate directly with brokers, investors, and specialist technology partners to resolve any roadblocks that hinder effective usage of Astral’s products. However, your work will be varied based on the changing needs of clients and colleagues.

Clients will enlist your help to connect, address urgent support inquiries, and understand their algorithmic trading strategy. Colleagues will rely upon you to clearly define functional requirements for tools and automation that streamline processes, enhance the user experience, and continuously promote Astral’s stability and operational scale.

You will quickly become proficient with the mechanics of electronic trading, U.S. equity market structure, and the composition of Astral’s data integration technology. You will demonstrate the composure, aptitude, and initiative required to solve complex issues with integrity in a dynamic and unstructured environment.

  • Open-minded and able to quickly acquire new concepts and ideas
  • Self-motivated
  • Committed and available to accommodate a flexible work schedule and an on-call environment

What you’ll do:
