Yes, I met one of the partners/senior traders who runs one of the groups there. However, the company is a bit like a consortium of independent traders and a feel that a lot depends on who you work for at the company. This partner wrote the book, http://www.amazon.com/Volatility-Trading-CD-ROM-Wi....

I'm also curious about this firm and would like to learn more. What sorts of strategies do they employ?

They are a hodge podge of former traders, mostly from the sell side and take more of a market maker approach to making money. Lots of types if products and more of an independent type of philosophy.

I know one of the partners... He used to be the head of equities at a BB shop and recruited me there out of undergrads... Some really smart successful people there, but it's probably a place more suited for someone who has a track record and wants more of their PnL. They may or may not be willing to really teach young guys.

My friend got an interview through applying online and it seemed pretty basic... simple coin-flip type brainteasers, quote S&P, etc. He attends a non-target and would have been straight out of undergrad, leading me to believe that they are willing to hire undergraduates.
