Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"I have really enjoyed my year at G-Research because the role, my team and my manager were all great and I cannot wait to come back."
University and Degree Title: The University of Reading, Information Technology Bsc
I chose to apply for G-Research because I enjoyed the presentation given by Dom Snook at my university, and found myself extremely interest in the FinTech industry. I found the interview process rigorous and tough, considering the number of interviews and the test. However it was a pleasant experience none the less and one which I feel is good to experience for the future. I was convinced to join G-Research because I was really interested in the field of work, as well as the scale of operation. The cutting edge technology that I knew they used here and the centralised location also played a large part in my decision.
My role involves ensuring upkeep and uptime on servers, locally and remotely in addition to day-to-day support for the business, audit checking and monitoring alerts. We were put through two weeks of presentations and guides, and practice questions. Then a week away to further learn windows infrastructure. It was extremely useful, if slightly overwhelming at times but the help and support from others meant this soon washed over.
I have really enjoyed my year at G-Research because the role, my team and my manager were all great and I cannot wait to come back. My favourite part about working here has been being able to take sole responsibility for the development of a new on boarding process for our team, which is now extensively used for all new members joining the Service desk team. Above all I really enjoyed the working environment and the people that you interact with daily and I would definitely recommend G-Research as an employer to a friend. The subsidised gym membership, location and monthly drinks are definitely part of this reason!
