Information on the company
Specialists in sports betting analysis. Their clients rely on them to maximize their returns, requiring a clever, fast and well organised approach.
There are endless opportunities here that best suit talented individuals who want management to get out of their way while they make stuff happen - creatively and reliably. Such people are really valuable and can be kept busy, interested and rewarded.
This is a permanent position, based near Kings Cross, Central London, paying £23-25k per annum.
Over the past 15 years the technology at the heart of our business has produced consistent and significant returns for our clients. We are a small but rapidly growing team of mathematicians, data scientists and software engineers constantly striving to refine our world class betting models while also researching and deploying new ones.
Our work bridges three domains, each challenging in its own right - betting and gambling, quantitative research and software development. The nature of our work and the relative immaturity of modern betting markets means opportunities to exploit are not in short supply. But people with sufficient skill and versatility to attack these projects are hard to find! So we are always looking for graduates or working practitioners in any technical discipline with an aptitude for analysing betting markets or for writing software to bet into those markets. Our very best people combine those skills with the capacity to see projects through from start to finish, and much else besides.
As the company continues to expand, we are looking for an energetic individual with a basic understanding of betting processes to join our Betting Analysis team in our London office. This role will require availability for day, evening, and weekend shifts. The successful applicant will have a love of sports and data, with a growth mindset and proactive approach that will assist our administration team in achieving their targets.
Recording and analysing data across a range of different fields.
Monitoring market and betting activity, within the organisation and across competitors.
Making quick decisions based upon changing information and circumstances.
Maintaining constant and clear communication with other members of the team.
The ideal candidates' skills and experience:
Demonstrably strong attention to detail
A focused and diligent work ethic under pressure.
Fast mental arithmetic and numeracy skills.
Proficiency in Microsoft Excel and the ability to present data in a compelling manner.
Flexibility to work outside of the office, evenings, weekends, and holidays as required. We offer a lot of flexibility in the role regarding preferred working schedule
Strong communication and collaboration skills
Attention to detail and able to retain information
Positive ‘can do’ attitude, and ability to meet deadlines
Willingness to learn and adapt to new environments
Experience/ interest in betting is strong bonus
