I am finishing my Ph.D. in Computer engineering and need to get my feet in the door. Not being from a top ten university, I don't think my profile meets the expectation of giants like J. P. M, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank etc. However, I am interested to know what are some other banks which have reasonable pay and quality quant positions, in areas of derivative pricing, interest rate modelling etc.?

I don't mind even if it is not a top tier bank provided I can learn along the journey and there is reasonable career progression.

Location: Singapore, Hong Kong. I am flexible to relocate outside Asia, but I heard getting visa is terribly difficult.
