We're looking for talented individuals to join our team.

The Role

You can expect:

  • To work closely with expert traders and developers to improve your models

Experience

You will need:

  • A 1st class mathematics-based degree from a top university or a 2:1 from Oxbridge
  • A solid understanding of the fundamentals of statistical prediction and probability theory including (but not limited to) an in-depth knowledge of regression and model fitting
  • Intellectual curiosity, creativity and confidence to try new approaches
  • Excellent problem solving and communication skills
  • An interest in sports or competitive games
