Our culture is collaborative, supportive, and (quite frankly) fun. We’re no longer a tech startup but we aim to maintain all the benefits of a smaller, lean organisation and combine these with the fire power of a mature, successful business.
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 Quantitative 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).
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.
In 2014 I completed a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Instituto Superior Tecnico, Lisbon. After moving to London, I quickly discovered my passion for coding and transitioned to a programming role, developing optimisation software for the chemical industry.
I joined G-Research in 2019 and couldn’t have made a better decision. Working as part of such an incredibly talented team has been extremely rewarding; in particular I am constantly impressed by the drive for excellence that lies behind everything we do. This motivates me to deliver my best work and to focus on always improving. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and Engineers are given the autonomy they need to be fully productive.
I studied Computer Science in Greece followed by an MSc in Software Engineering at Imperial College. Before I joined G-Research I worked at Skype (Microsoft).
My favourite part of working in GR is the people: from my colleagues to our customers. The culture is relaxed which encourages collaboration and makes it easier for everyone to work together. It’s also great to be able to use the latest tech, like Kubernetes and Kafka.
