Compensation: £80k to uncapped, we are seeking top talents

We are seeking a skilled modeler who will straight away be responsible for building market-leading predictive models. By the end of your first year, success would mean having personally improved our models’ profitability by 20% across all markets we trade.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor or Master's degree from a leading academic institute
  • Minimum 1-year experience with real-world data science (can be from industry or online/personal projects)
  • Excellent reasoning skills and mathematical ability
  • Any track record of winning data science competitions (i.e. Kaggle) is a bonus
  • Any personal algorithmic trading project is a bonus

Top 3 reasons why we are a bad fit for you:

  • We are solely outcome-driven, implementing fancy models for the sake of it does not interest us
  • As a small company (15 people), directions change and things can get very chaotic at times
  • We have a policy of radical transparency, which means we value giving each other tough feedback

Top 3 reasons why we are a good fit for you:

  • We are solely results-driven, the Quant Research team is razor-focused on improving held-out dataset performance
  • We have crystal clear evaluation metrics and fast feedback loop. If you have a good idea, you can expect it to be traded within 48 hours and see the exact profit it has added to the company
  • Our people are our greatest asset, you will be working with a team of Cambridge graduates who share similar values to you

Here is our tech stack:

  • Python + Tensorflow + Scikit-learn + XGBoost/LightGBM + statsmodels + Gitlab CI/CD
