I studied computer science at Cambridge, and knew I wanted to work at a technology company. Economics and finance has always been something that interested me, so G-Research was a perfect fit as it allows me to use my software and programming skills in a financial environment.
Having had no experience with finance before starting here hasn't been an issue at all, as G-Research provided training for this and I pick up new things while working with my team. It's really good to be able to learn more technical skills with programming and software development while learning about how these can be applied to finance as well.
G-Research is a really good place to work and a very supportive environment. I'm working with a great team of developers who are happy and willing to help. There are plenty of social events including team breakfasts, monthly drinks as well as summer and Christmas parties.
