Quantitative Researcher – Sports

  • Dependent on previous experience

THE ROLE

We are looking for Masters/PhD level computational statisticians and data scientists to join our Quantitative Research team. Successful candidates will work on the most interesting problems in order to help us achieve our mission, which is to establish sports betting as an alternative asset class for sophisticated investors.

Our Quantitative Research Team works to develop and implement statistical models for analysing and predicting the outcome of sporting events.  We use the signals generated by these models to inform sports betting by professional traders.  We currently model football, tennis and basketball and we are looking to extend our range to cricket, golf, American football and ice hockey.

We have positions for candidates who have achieved a Masters and/or PhD in a subject that heavily utilises computational statistical modelling or data science. Candidates with in-depth sports knowledge, experience of modelling sporting events or experience in financial quantitative analysis are particularly encouraged to apply. Equally we are seeking candidates eager to take their first steps on a career path, or looking to move from an academic to a commercial environment.  

THE COMPANY

Stratagem was founded in 2012 and represents the culmination of knowledge and expertise derived from a wealth of experience in both the financial markets and the sports betting industry.  In 2015 the company was named one of the 20 Most Promising Sports Technology Solutions Providers by CIO Review.

YOUR PROFILE

We are seeking talented and motivated candidates with a background or experience in computational statistical modelling and / or machine learning.  You will join us to work with a group of high-achieving quantitative researchers who love sport and who love solving difficult problems. You will be able to demonstrate your abilities through tangible work and discrete projects, with constant feedback from real world events and you should be confident enough to contribute ideas and challenge assumptions from your first day.

You will have achieved a Masters or Phd in a scientific subject with considerable statistical or data science content. This will be backed up by an excellent first degree.

While applicants are likely to have specialist skills in specific areas, we want team players who love what they do and are willing to push themselves beyond their comfort zone. Our existing technology utilises Python, C++ and MongoDB, and where possible we use open source technologies. However, we strongly believe in using the right tool for the job, so are always open to new approaches that present the opportunity to improve business value.

HOW TO APPLY

To apply for the role please email your CV and a covering letter (with the job title ‘Quantitative Researcher’ in the subject of the email) to recruiting@stratagem.co

Tell us how working for Stratagem will help achieve our goals and yours.  Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview and will be required to demonstrate proficiency by completing an in-house technical exercise.

We respectfully note that we will not be retaining recruitment consultant for this position and will simply not reply to unsolicited applications or enquiries from such parties.
