G-Research – Why Work For Us?


G-Research is a leading quantitative research and technology company. We use scientific techniques, big data and world-class technology to predict future movements in financial markets, and develop the platform to deploy these ideas globally.

Based in the heart of Central London, we are served by 5 stations and 6 tube lines, with the closest station Goodge Street within seconds of the office. Being situated in the vibrant West End means you are in walking distance of many top London attractions and shopping districts.


We are always looking to expand our Quantitative Analyst, Software Development & IT Infrastructure teams. We often have other positions open that can be seen on our vacancies page.

Here we give very talented people the freedom to explore the best ideas and turn them into reality within a team of like-minded others. You'll work with inspirational people, applying science to real world problems in a relaxed yet dynamic environment. And get paid for doing it.

We offer an exceptional employee package which includes top private healthcare and an annual discretionary bonus. The social aspect of the company includes team weekends away, theatre evenings, dinners, Christmas parties and a Summer Ball. Many employees also participate in lunchtime runs through Regent Park, 5 a side football and cricket.

Our working environment is positive and informal, with no dress code, and people are judged on the quality of their work. There is also a lively social side to the company, with regular sponsored events, football games and weekends away.

We are based just off Tottenham Court Road in the vibrant West End. This means that a short walk will take you to Oxford Street, Theatreland, Leicester Square, the British Museum, Regents Park or even St Pancras International ahead of a weekend in Paris! After work there are pubs galore, and those wanting more than a quick drink can head to Soho which is on our doorstep. What's more there are three tube lines within five minutes of the office – you really couldn't ask for a better location.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at G-Research (London, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Online test, followed by 2 on site interview sessions each consisting of 3 interviews of an hour each.

    The online test was easier than similar tests I have taken at other companies, but seemed pitched fairly well to weed out weak applicants without making it unreasonably hard.

    The first day of interviews were all with members of the team I applied for, and all almost exclusively technical.

    The second day was a mixture of technical interviews and more qualitative interviews with senior staff.

    Generally a well organised process.
