Job Description

A Career with Point72's Canvas team

Canvas sits within Point72's Market Intelligence platform - a platform that is inventing the future of finance. Market Intelligence combines the most innovative data sources, analysis, and investment tools with the Firm's traditional strength in deep, fundamental analysis of how companies and industries operate.

Canvas is the fundamental research division within Market Intelligence, developing proprietary supply chain insights through compliant qualitative research. Our Analysts provide rich, independent, and timely research, ranging from current trends to competitive dynamics to industry structure. This research serves as an input to the investment processes of our Long/Short investment professionals.

What you'll do

When you intern with the Canvas team, you're signing up for the learning experience of your life. You'll never look at anything the same - from grocery stores to tires to semiconductors. Other Market Intelligence divisions do quantitative research to explain what is going on in an industry. As a Canvas Analyst intern, your qualitative research work will help explain the why.

More specifically, you will:

* Adhere to the highest ethical standards and Point72's Compliance program
* Learn about industries you may now know nothing about-as a Summer Analyst you will be assigned to two of four sectors (Consumer, TMT, Healthcare, or Industrials) to conduct fundamental, bottom up, proprietary research
* Identify sources of information, collecting against critical information requirements
* Work collaboratively with a small team to provide timely and accurate insights

Desired skill sets

The team is seeking college juniors and seniors who are intellectually curious, ambitious, and have a strong desire to work hard. We are looking for students with:

* Demonstrated academic success as reflected in a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0 in their undergraduate studies
* Commitment to integrity and strong ethical standards
* Strong analytical and organizational skills, attention to detail, and excellent written and verbal communication abilities
* Intellectual curiosity, creativity, great work ethic, energy, and enthusiasm
* Coachability and the ability to work as a member of a tight-knit team
