Machine Learning Researcher

Quantitative Research London, United Kingdom


Description

You will join our team of exceptional mathematicians & machine learners researching systematic investment ideas that predict the future of financial markets, applying scientific techniques to find patterns in large, noisy and rapidly changing real-world data sets. We employ cutting edge machine learning methods drawn from diverse areas such as neural networks and deep learning; non-convex optimisation; Bayesian non-parametrics and approximate inference.

You will work on a small number of projects concurrently, extending classical methods and developing entirely novel ideas; you will read the latest publications in the field, discuss them within the firm's research community, and attend the leading conferences worldwide. This is a pure research role where you will have the freedom to develop and test your ideas with real-world data in an environment that resembles academia: you are only limited by your imagination!

Who are we looking for?

An interest in practical and theoretical machine learning is a must! You will also have either a post-graduate degree in ML or related discipline, or commercial experience developing novel ML algorithms; we will also consider exceptional candidates with a proven record of success in online data science competitions (e.g. Kaggle).

Excellent reasoning skills and mathematical ability are crucial: the textbook methods rarely work on our data, and you will need to understand how to fix them.

Experience with object-oriented or functional programming is highly desirable: you will be developing your own models and need to operate with our existing codebase.
