“You can be better tomorrow than you are today!”- Mike Bellafiore, The PlayBook


Have you built a profitable trading system and now want to work with an experienced team? We want to scale up your models to their full potential.  We want to work with talented, driven individuals who believe that through collaboration, they can achieve more.


SMB Systems, in a “JV” (joint venture) with Kershner Trading Group in NYC, is looking for experienced, quantitative traders of U.S. equities and futures. The JV is seeking individuals with a strong entrepreneurial spirit, exceptional work ethic, and strong analytical skills to implement models for the firm. Candidates must have a demonstrable track record of quantitative model profitability with actual trades. We are interested in profitable experience regardless of the current trading platform.  We can help expand your profitability through advanced technology, generous splits, cost savings, access to risk tolerant capital, order route options, post trade analysis, and a strong knowledge base.


KTG is a leading proprietary trading and technology firm headquartered in Austin, Texas with a second office in midtown Manhattan, NY. The JV provides capital and infrastructure to in-house quantitative and bionic/discretionary traders who actively trade financial instruments on behalf of the firm. The traders share profits from their trading activity with the firm. We focus on U.S. equity markets. Trader compensation is performance-based and considers risk adjusted returns.  Please review our website to learn more about our culture and environment. We will not field phone inquiries for this position.


The JV provides unique opportunities to talented, energetic people, rooted in the philosophy that everyone can do more than they realize if they try.  The JV empowers independent thinkers who have the discipline to set long-term goals, the adaptability to “shift gears” but still stay on course, and who are open to being both a student and teacher in a learning organization.


This JV offers the chance to join a high-performance team of:

  • experienced traders pushing their skills and adapting to new market opportunities;

  • talented technology professionals developing leading-edge trading and market analytics systems;

  • quantitative/business analysts providing tools and insights to fuel business growth;

  • top-notch support staff who keep everything humming and meet all challenges in a cool, casual atmosphere.


Our JV is currently seeking candidates who are excited about the prospect of pushing their own professional limits. Think you can do more? What are you capable of?
