Cambridge
to £85k DoE and excellent benefits

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Only the best and the brightest need apply

If you are ambitious, bright and eager to make a positive impact in a short amount of time using machine-learning and artificial intelligence, this may be the role for you.

Unlike some of the bigger names around, this successful, self-funded, Cambridge start-up, with an established advantage in a competitive market, is offering the opportunity to develop your career in analytics and financial trading at a much faster rate than would be possible following the usual corporate route.

If you can handle responsibility, they will give it to you. If you crave mental stimulation, you will find it here. If you want to constantly challenge yourself and see how far your potential can take you, joining this company could make the difference between achieving your goals in three years instead of ten.

Their applications are machine-learning and AI processes applied to financial trading and modelling tools. They are looking for the brightest mathematicians and computer scientists to work on demanding projects, critical to the success of the business. The type of work you will be doing includes: developing APIs to support data pipelines; machine-learning; exploratory data analysis and live deployment of data processing pipelines.

The emphasis is on giving you the space to produce quality work and ensuring you are continually challenged. It is a hard-working environment but to ensure their employees can perform at their best, the company does offer an unlimited holiday allowance.

Minimum experience and skills necessary for this role:

  • An excellent STEM degree (2.1 or above) from a university ranked in the world's top twenty
  • An enthusiasm for providing reliable, elegant solutions to real-world challenges in data manipulation and processing
  • Great skills in Python, R and a real desire to keep learning the latest technology in machine learning applications

Full permission to live and work in the UK without time limit, restriction or sponsorship is also required.
