You will use your knowledge of data blending, statistical analysis, and machine learning methods to help scale and automate the way we analyse, validate, and visualise diverse data sources; and you will help build tooling to enable data science initiatives across the company.

This is a team at the forefront of the company’s data strategy, responsible for finding solutions to some of the many important data challenges within the firm, meaning you will have a unique opportunity to make an impact from the beginning.

The successful candidate will be comfortable working within a multi-disciplinary team, collaborating with industry leading data scientists and financial experts, developing solutions that adapt to a rapidly changing data landscape.

  • Experience in Python, in particular packages such as Pandas, Numpy, SciPy, Matplotlib
  • (Optional) Practical understanding of SQL databases
  • Demonstrable enthusiasm for owning end-to-end machine learning projects
  • Curiosity and critical thinking about real-world data, through exploratory data analysis and data visualisation
  • Interest in building data pipelines for extracting/transforming data for productionised platforms
  • Confidence to build relationships with both internal teams and external vendors, and ability to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Previous financial experience is not required, although an interest in financial markets and securities is desirable
  • Self-starting positive attitude, ability to thrive in an autonomous environment and willingness to learn

The following would also be beneficial:

  • Active Git Hub/Kaggle profiles
  • Experience selecting, developing and refining machine learning models
  • Knowledge and/or interest in Natural Language Processing

  • Active G-Research community with weekly intern events
  • Informal dress code and excellent work/life balance
  • Monthly company events

These roles will be fully on-site in our London offices.
