G-Research Coding Challenge with Hired

G-Research Coding Challenge with Hired

27 February 2023
  • Software Engineering

Together with Hired, we ran a coding challenge between October and November 2022 for aspiring Software Engineers, Software Developers, Quantitative Engineers, Quantitative Developers, Research Engineers, Architects, and Machine Learning Engineers.

The challenge consisted of a technical test with a 45 minute time limit, giving participants the chance to demonstrate their coding skills and win a MacBook Pro.

After much deliberation, we’re pleased to announce that the winner is Liang Song, based in Beijing, China.

Hear about Liang’s experience participating in the challenge:

“I found out about the G-Research Coding Challenge from Twitter and LinkedIn, and through a friend who kindly shared the information with me. Prior to the challenge, I didn’t know much about G-Research beyond it being a London-based quantitative finance research firm.

“The coding challenge was different to other challenges I have participated in before, with the questions gradually increasing in difficulty.”

“Generally, each question required a simple implementation for each step, but there was a need for deeper thinking for better performance as well, which wasn’t straightforward given the challenging the time limits.

“I was pleasantly surprised to hear that I had won and I am grateful for this opportunity. I learnt a lot from the experience and I think opportunities like this greatly benefit individuals like myself to continue our growth and development.”

Enter our next coding challenge

Our next coding challenge is live and running between 28 February to 11 April. The G-Research Coding Challenge is a 45-minute technical test that allows you to showcase your coding skills to the G-Research hiring team.

Sign-up and take the challenge, and be in with a chance to win a Apple MacBook Pro.
