Lansing Proprietary is a data-driven investment manager specialising in the agricultural commodities that underpin the global supply of food, such as wheat, soybeans, corn and sugar. We combine a deep and specific understanding of these markets with expertise in state-of-the-art quantitative and statistical techniques, including machine learning.

This is a rare opportunity to work in a startup-like environment that combines the autonomy and breadth of responsibility of a role in a small, agile development team with the market proximity and excitement of a role at a trading desk.
