SWE and Quant at same firm

I never applied to SWE positions at hedge funds or prop shops because I just thought quant as more fitting of my background and my coding skills aren’t amazing compared to those who studied it. But now I’m thinking I should maybe consider it as well but my question is will a firm consider me for both or only for one? If i apply to both at the same place would I get interviewed for both or would they select one for me?

You’ll just be considered for one, keep in mind even though the role doesn’t differ immensely, the bar for quant during interviews is significantly higher.
