Capula invests in talent.
“My journey at Capula has been truly remarkable. Starting as a tech developer in London, I relocated to the Hong Kong office which gave me the opportunity to work closely on projects with different trading desks. It was also possible for me to transition to a trading role - a testament to the professional development and career advancement opportunities possible at Capula. From my journey as a tech developer to a rates trader, I have always been amazed by the talent Capula has and continues to attract; I think that’s one of the biggest strengths of the firm.”
“Starting as an intern at Capula and progressing through the Capula Analyst Programme (CAP), I have now found my niche as a trader on the bond RV desk. As a junior trader, I have greatly benefited from the collaborative culture at the company, where the knowledge and ideas are shared and debated every day. This open dialogue, alongside the hands-on responsibilities involving research, analysis, decision-making and execution, offers me a rich learning experience and opportunities.”
“After completing my undergraduate studies, I was thrilled to join Capula's operations team. My focus quickly centred on a variety of projects where I was able to directly assist with enhancing our daily operational efficiency and controls through automation and enhancement. Embracing the possibilities for advancement and professional development that Capula offers, I transitioned to the RAD (Rapid Application Development) team. Here, my priority shifted towards developing company-wide solutions, predominantly aimed at data streamlining and automation. Having been involved in a wide array of projects, I have gained a deep understanding of the collaborative and ever-evolving landscape at Capula.”

“The internship experience has given me a valuable glimpse into the dynamic life here at Capula. In addition to building out my internship project, I have also enjoyed being able to see the investment decision-making process up close. Capula has fostered an environment that welcomes intellectual curiosity, making it an excellent place to ask questions and learn. From the formal training sessions to my project to the time spent with my team, the program offers ample opportunity for growth and development.”

“Through the Capula Internship Program, I not only obtained exposure to rigorous and extensive quantitative methods, but critically, I gained insight into the economic and market forces propelling exciting avenues to investigate. Capula’s collegiate and collaborative environment granted me endless development opportunities and an ability to learn from the great traders of the industry.”
