Job Description

Combine your passion for stats with your love of sport

Our Quantitative Trading Analysts are well known in our company as the brains behind the bet. You’ll join a small team in Leeds who develop statistical models for our trading systems. Your models will support our bookmaking function, producing odds for sports events that see over £4bn turnover every year, and enable us to analyse and evaluate customer behaviour and create effective marketing offers.

Internal role title: Graduate Quantitative Trading Analyst.

About Us

We make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and we thrive in a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition to promote safer gambling.

Your role in the team

You’ll play a key role in building statistical models, making sure everything we produce meets the needs of the business and our customers.We’d like you to bring ideas – you’ll have the chance to analyse the way we work and use mathematical techniques and modelling to improve our performance and profitability. Colleagues across our business will come to you for expert advice, so you’ll need to present your analysis to various audiences in a way they’ll understand.

Learning and development will be part of your day-to-day role – using cutting edge tools and techniques to find new ways to improve model accuracy and bring exciting new opportunities to our customers and sports traders.

This role is available to you if you’ve already graduated or graduating in 2022, with a preferred start by September 2022. If you are available or due to graduate after this, you are welcome to join our talent pool for future vacancies.

Skills Needed

We need you to bring us First Class Honours or any Postgraduate degree in a numerate subject e.g. Maths, Stats, Physics, Computer Science. Evidence of any Stats modules taken during your qualification will be seen as a big plus. You must be a keen sports fan, and also be genuinely interested in bookmaking and betting. We’re interested in your approach to work too – we’re looking for people who are full of initiative and willing to learn. Problem solving is fun for you– especially when you’re working against the clock to meet a deadline or two.

You’ll certainly stand out if your technical expertise includes a statistical programming language (preferably R or Python), or any general purpose programming languages, (preferably Java or JavaScript). Experience using databases (preferably MySQL), building mathematical models in a professional working environment, or sound working knowledge of Excel/VBA would be considered a useful base to build upon.

Your in depth training programme will allow you to make the most of your natural talents, and develop all the skills you need to become a fully-fledged and experienced analyst. Along the way, you’ll be exposed to big data and machine learning technologies including Spark, H2O, Keras, TensorFlow and Sklearn, as well as Cloud technologies (AWS, GCP, Azure).

What we offer

We’ve welcomed our teams back to the office and have a balanced approach to office and home working.Here, you’ll have the opportunity to work from home up to 80% of the time with 20% office time built in to ensure we get some face-to-face collaborative team time - and the chance for a coffee and a catch up!

As well as offering you the opportunity to fuel your sports obsession within your full time job, we also want you to feel comfortable at work, offering a casual dress code. We’ll also welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare (or a cash alternative), an attractive pension package, life assurance, healthy gym discounts and a flexible benefits scheme.

Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.
