Radix on campus July 5 and 6

Radix is a research-driven trading startup (~35 people) led by Michael Rauchman (former CTO and lead architect of GETCO), and Ben Blander (UChicago math PhD and former head of Citadel's high-frequency group). 
Over the past two seasons, we've added 12 graduating students from Princeton, Harvard, UPenn, MIT, Columbia, and UChicago, and we’re excited to expand our efforts to Waterloo!
Having a technologist as an equal partner in the firm gives us an appreciation and understanding of how much impact technologists can have to the bottom line, so we're excited to throw a ton of responsibility at new grads, provide complete access to our entire stack, mentorship from industry leading technologists, and top tier compensation. 
We’re visiting campus next week (Wednesday, July 5 and Thursday, July 6) to meet students interested in full-time opportunities in 2018 and beyond (even if you're already committed to fall and winter internships).
Below is when we’re available to meet, foll…

The Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre and Public Safety Canada (CCIRC) and Public Safety Canada would like to extend an invitation to current students or recent graduates of Computer Engineering, Computer sciences, Information Technology and /or any related program to participate in our annual event, GeekWeek (https://g33kw33k.ca). The event is held from October 19 to 27 2017 in Ottawa at the Library and Archives building. This is not an internship offer as participation is not remunerated.

The previous edition of GeekWeek welcomed more than 100 participants from Canada and six other countries representing no fewer than 60 companies in varying sectors.
