Spring Alphathon™ - 2017

LEARN and EARN through the WorldQuant Challenge Spring Alphathon!



Spring is a great time for new and challenging beginnings. WorldQuant is currently offering a unique opportunity to apply your quantitative skills through our Spring Alphathon, which is part of the WorldQuant Challenge.

The WorldQuant Challenge provides interested candidates with an opportunity to test their trading ideas and strategies using WebSim, WorldQuant’s web-based market simulator. Qualified candidates earn points by identifying high-quality trading signals - what we call Alphas - and these points can lead to Bronze, Silver and Gold status.

Individuals who achieve Silver and Gold may be considered for Research Consultant positions with WorldQuant.

How the Spring Alphathon Works

The Spring Alphathon makes the WorldQuant Challenge even more exciting by offering the top 100 Gold finishers the opportunity to receive a ONE-TIME STIPENDS from a total potential pool of over $40,000.

Top scorer in Level 1 (as defined below) may be eligible to receive a SPECIAL one-time stipend of up to $2,500.

  • Level 1: The top 10 scorers that reach Gold level during the Alphathon period.
  • Level 2: The next 40 ranked scorers who reach Gold level during the Alphathon period.
  • Level 3: The next 50 ranked scorers who reach Gold level during the Alphathon period.

(Note: One-time special stipend amounts may vary depending on scores and the number of participants.)


In each case, stipends are subject to WorldQuant’s discretion and will be given only to participants who become Research Consultants.

Note that only Alphas created, simulated and submitted on or after March 1, 2017, will be considered for Alphathon scoring.
