The Role:

As an Equity Trader Intern, you will spend the summer learning about the markets as well as Trillium’s proprietary technology. Working closely with a designated mentor, you will research and enhance our existing trade strategies. You will develop a solid understanding of US, Canadian, and OTC equity markets and strengthen your communication, quantitative, and analytical skills. Here you’ll practice and grow your understanding of economics, risk assessment, and decision-making by making split-second buy and sell decisions by placing simulated orders on our proprietary keyboard-based trading platform.

Our intention is to set our interns up for success before graduating from their respective college and thoughtfully challenging each to expand their exposure and knowledge. Interns who prove that they are a great fit for Trillium during the internship will receive offers to become full-time equity traders after graduation, at any of our three locations: Manhattan, NY, Chicago, IL, or Miami, FL.
