About The Role

Wanna be a “Quant” working for brands like Ladbrokesbwin and Coral? We bet you do.  

You’ll deal with complex questions around sports betting and online gaming together in a team of highly skilled Mathematicians. Sounds exciting? 

There is even more: you’ll improve the performance of our mathematical models, which are used in products dealing with hundreds of millions of pounds, and thereby directly influence the company results.  

 

What you'll be doing:

  • Build, implement and maintain mathematical and probability models for sports betting and Customer Management based on sound mathematical principles.
  • Follow a data-driven approach by collecting information from databases and bookmakers.
  • Work with Trading teams, key stakeholders, and product managers to understand requirements for trading and risk management tools.
  • Demonstrate technical skills and abilities with technologies used.
  • Act as a conduit between Trading, IT, and other key stakeholders being able to explain mathematical models to non-mathematicians such as Trading Operations, Client Risk etc. in the delivery of trading and risk management tools.
  • Review the existing modelling techniques and come up with new approaches where required, sometimes in ambitious timelines. 
  • Ensure that solutions delivered are fit for purpose and appropriately tested so that standards are upheld to a high level. 

 

What you'll need:

  • A University degree (ideally MA / Ph.D.) in Mathematics and/or some field in applied mathematics such as statistics, control theory or theoretical physics.
  • Ideally, you’ve already worked with quantitative finance modelling or similar role within the gaming industry or exposure to a trading department where modelling / quant data research has been practised.
  • Experience in finding patterns in data and applying machine learning techniques to derive models.
  • A highly organised and structured approach to work.
  • Keen on challenges that require you to head into the unknown in search of a novel solution, and you have the drive to deliver it in full detail.
  • Willed and skilled to learn new domain fields quickly and being able to apply your knowledge and skills to new challenges immediately. 

Bonus Points for:

  • An understanding of Agile development methodologies.
  • Knowledge of Mathematica, R (or some other statistical software), SQL and F# (.Net & OOP) is an advantage.
