Leon - Quantitative Researcher

"Having started my university education in Engineering at MIT, finance didn’t initially seem like an option. But, after a discussion with my peers, I steered my PhD research towards more applied maths topics – positioning myself for a finance role.

There was a lot I didn’t know about the G-Research, so I gained insights from those who interviewed me. They all came across as intelligent, curious, and interested in exploring problems from different angles. I figured if people like this enjoy their jobs then I most certainly will.

And over two years in, there’s nowhere I’d rather be. The atmosphere is very relaxed and, as a quantitative researcher, we can pretty much spend all our time doing what we like the most: finding solutions to interesting and challenging problems. There are no office politics and the performance metrics couldn’t be clearer cut, which is a big motivational factor."

 

Samantha - Software Engineer

"I completed a BSc in Natural Sciences and then went on to do a major in Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. After university, I worked for a large bank but quickly realised I was looking for a more exciting challenge. After speaking to a friend who worked at G-Research, I knew it would be the place for me.

My favourite part of working for G-Research is the great working relationship we have with the people we write software for: it feels like we’re working with them, not for them. I also really enjoy the structure of my working day and the proportion of my time spent writing and designing my own code."

 

Roshni - IT Service Desk Team Lead

"After completing a BSc (Hons) Degree in Network Management and Security at the University of Middlesex, I was fortunate to be put forward for the IT Service Desk position at G Research. My previous role was working within an IT Service Desk, however since joining G-Research I have discovered that this is not a traditional service desk. We are supporting and working with cutting-edge technology in a fast paced environment, making the role both challenging and exciting all the time."

 

Simon - Cyber Investigation and Response Analyst

"I was looking to move into a pure Information Security role after being a Systems Engineer at a company that made HSMs. G-Research looked like an attractive place to work because they put themselves forward as needing security to protect their core assets – as opposed to security to maintain some arbitrary compliance checklist.

After a few interviews, I was convinced that G-Research was the place I wanted to be. I knew that working alongside the people who conducted the interviews would help me grow professionally. The best part of working at G-Research is the calibre of people that work here. I have learned so much since starting here and have been supported every step of the way, enabling me to pass my CISSP, Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) and Network Forensic Analyst (GNFA) exams."

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at G-Research.

    Interview

    I applied to G-Research via a recruitment agency. The first step was to take a written, 90-minute test. I don't live near London, so they booked a room in my city where the test was administered. Some of the questions were actually vey tough. The test covered topics in stats, probability, programming and some finance.
