DeepMacro is a Fintech company that provides early, independent assessment of global
macroeconomic conditions, based on data collected from the internet, and applies these assessments
to financial markets. We believe there is great demand for alternatives to the market echo chamber
to assess the global economy and its implications for asset prices. We also believe that economics and
market research is too dry and emphasize new and engaging ways of conveying views about
economies and markets.


DeepMacro applies insights from our global macroeconomic system to financial markets. As a
portfolio strategist, you would be in charge of constructing asset portfolios on the back of the
automated system DeepMacro has created to monitor the global macroeconomy and its features that
are important for asset prices: growth, inflation, sentiment, and sectoral developments.
DeepMacro is a “Fintech” company that is applying technology to idea generation. As such, you
would be working with the firm’s chief economist, and with its growing data science team.
Requirements:

  • PhD in finance, economics, or related field
  • Coursework or experience in portfolio construction and optimization
  • Passion for macroeconomics and its implications for markets
  • Coding ability in python (plus Matlab, preferably)
  • Experience in markets a plus but not required

The emphasis will be on incorporating macro information into portfolio construction across multiple
asset classes.


The DeepMacro founding team combines many years of expertise in global macroeconomics,
systematic portfolio strategies, Internet data acquisition, unstructured data mining, and the
entrepreneurial delivery of Internet growth analytics and Intelligence as a Service (IaaS).
We are currently acquiring and analyzing large amounts of data to deepen our understanding of the
global economy. If you want to learn more, please contact us!
