Fabian - Quantitative Researcher

"Before joining G-Research, I completed an Applied Mathematics PhD at Oxford, where I worked on modelling flows of customers inside supermarkets (in collaboration with Tesco). As a Quantiative Researcher, I work on producing forecasts of market returns using mathematical models and various data feeds.

The two biggest things that I like about working at GR are the smart and incredibly friendly colleagues as well as being able to strike a really good work-life balance (in contrast to a lot of the finance industry)."

 

                                     

Annie - Software Engineer

"I was 2 years into my BA in Computer Science at Cambridge when I first joined G-Research as an Software Developer Intern. I then came back to G-Research after I finished my degree, returning to the data development division as a Software Developer.

I first came across G-Research at a careers fair, where I was looking for something to fill my summer and get some valuable experience. After interning here for three months I knew that I wanted to come back.

I love the fact everyone continues to learn and adapt with the changes in technology. You have the freedom to try out new technologies and find the best fit for each application. The company is also very sociable, with monthly company drinks, a summer ball, and an annual weekend away, which is a great way to meet other people around the company. This creates a very friendly work environment. "

                                         

 

Ross - Cloud Engineer

"I studied Computer Network Management and Design at the University of Portsmouth, following this I worked at a small UK hosting company for several years, running their OpenStack-based public cloud platform. I’ve been at GR for around 18 months and in this time I’ve been solely focused on engineering and operating an internal compute platform based on open-source software. 

My favourite thing about working at G-Research is the people. G-Research strive to hire not only the brightest minds, but good people, which in turn creates a brilliant collegiate and social atmosphere at the company."

 

                                     

Charlotte - Security Support Specialist Team Lead

"I studied Forensic Computing and Security at Bournemouth University and completed a placement year here at G Research in the Security Operations team.  I knew GR had access to a lot interesting and innovative technologies so I was very excited and pleased when I received the internship. After a successful year on placement, I was delighted to be offered a graduate role when I completed my degree.

Being a part of a central support team means you get to learn about multiple areas of the company and see what others teams are involved in. It’s the people here at GR which make it an amazing place to work, everyone is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. With new technology being developed all the time there’s so many new projects to be involved in and always more to learn. "

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à G-Research en août 2019.

    Entretien

    I had a first video interview, one 90min test on quantitative skills (math-stat-coding) and a second video interview. After these 3 they told me I did not performed good enough.
    Nice experience overall, fun problems to solve and nice and kind people in both interviews and in HR.

    I had no previous experience in interviewing for quantitative finance jobs and I have an academic background (phd+3years postdoc).

    I found it a bit strange that they put strong emphasis on being able to solve fast simple mathematical problems (high school level - math olympiad style) or coding simple python functions. In my experience as a researcher, this correlates poorly with being a good researcher (finding the right questions, fighting with hard problems for months, have reliable results).
    I felt I could have performed better in a interview like that when I was an undergraduate student.
    I think this approach is common in these types of interviews for quant jobs, but I don't find it very optimal

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • - first videochat was mostly a coding interview, implementing a simple function in python (number theory inspired problem) I was also asked some stat/ml questions
      - second videochat was in math, number theory problem and some probability problems
      - test was in math, stat and coding   Répondre à cette question
