Ex-Goldman Sachs MD wants to hire you for his AI trading firm

A managing director who left Goldman Sachs earlier this year has reappeared with a new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered trading company. And he's looking for recruits. 

Enrico Ottavian spent over 11 years at Goldman Sachs, where he was made MD in 2013 and was most recently head of EMEA and US interest rate product structuring. Ottavian resigned from Goldman in April 2019. As of last month he's launched Deep Grey Research, a London-based trading and technology company which applies AI to finance.

Ottavian declined to comment for this article. However, his new company is understood to be hiring across the electronic trading spectrum and is looking for quantitative developers, machine learning expertise and technical operations profiles. 

Deep Grey's website describes the company as a collection of, 'engineers, developers, data scientists, sales[people] and traders looking to change how finance is done.' It's not clear, though, who currently works there alongside Ottavian. It's early days, however - Deep Grey was only registered with the UK's Companies House on 3 September 2019.
