Not to be too rude, but WTF are you located/is this job?

Google is one of my best friends, but I shouldn't have to use it to discover who & where you are, anymore than I should expect you to read my LQ posts to figure out my qualifications.

BTW, do you have a web site? If so, why no link in this post? yields:

An error occurred while loading

Timeout on server Connection was to at port 80

& goes to a NetworkSolutions

Coming Soon! This site is under construction.
generic page.

Some interesting Google results --
1st, your listed name in quotes:
1 - 100 of about 391 English pages for "Stevens Capital Management L.P"
A quick scan appeared to show that all were job postings.

Next, remove the word "job" from the search criteria:
1 - 25 of 25 English pages for "Stevens Capital Management L.P" -job
Quick scan shows the first few still job postings.

So, remove "position" from the criteria:
1 - 17 of 17 English pages for "Stevens Capital Management L.P" -job -position.
Finally, the top result was not a job posting, only the 2nd & 3rd & 4 others. 6 out out of 17.

Until I found a NYSE governance link, I was having Enron flashbacks. You ought to look at why your Google results profile makes it look as if your business is hiring people, rather that actually managing money.
