A Collaborative Force

We build teamwork into everything we do. That means embedding engineers with portfolio managers to develop smarter trading systems. Pairing researchers with business development to offer more valuable answers to clients. Bringing together analysts from all specializations to support our research with meaningful data.

The work here is challenging. And as thoughtful, curious problem-solvers, we challenge everything—together.

Each day is different at AQR. There are always new questions to tackle and fresh opportunities for working together. Talk to any of us, and you’ll see.

I’m working on a new platform that will allow one of our largest funds to re-imagine how we think about research problems and portfolio management. The core challenge is building a system that allows for a high degree of flexibility with the precision needed in managing multibillion-dollar portfolios.

Mariya Feldman

Executive Director, Engineering
M.B.A. MSA Institute

I work in Sales, Marketing and Services Engineering, developing systems and tools to support the Operations and Business Development teams. Our goal is to enrich the client experience, simplify operational processes and enable better access to data. While the projects vary in complexity and technologies involved, they always require collaboration. One of my current projects, for example, challenges us to rethink ways multiple critical systems communicate with each other and requires design discussions between the engineering and business teams. It is both exciting and challenging to design and implement a scalable, future-proof solution, where we can see how our work has direct impact on the firm’s success.

We aspire to give our employees an exceptional experience and to help them become the best professionals and people they can be.
