Job description

At Longshot Systems we’re building advanced platforms for sports betting analytics and trading.


We are a small start-up company working in a rewarding and challenging industry. Having developed a lot of our core platform infrastructure we are looking to begin expanding our trading strategy research activity. Our core systems handle thousands of events per second, 24/7. We have similar problems and constraints to high frequency trading firms, but in the sports betting world.


You'd be working closely with the CEO, CTO and Machine Learning research team to design, test and implement new high frequency sports betting strategies based on machine learning models. Due to us being a small startup the role suits someone who wants to be involved in all aspects of the R&D process, from high-level design through to production implementation. Our ML stack is Python based and communicates with our core infrastructure, written in Golang, by RPC.


The ideal candidate will be highly creative and enjoy generating new, innovate ways to tackle problems and suggesting improvements to existing methodologies; you'll have a high level of autonomy to research whichever methods you felt would be best suited to the problem at hand. A strong mathematical understanding of the fundamentals of Machine Learning is very important for this role and ideally you'll have experience in doing research on cutting-edge models either in industry or academia.


If you're the kind of person who enjoys knocking up a prototype model based on something you read the other day in a research paper you'll enjoy our working environment. We have weekly research afternoons where each member of the team reads up about a new topic, technique or academic paper that interests them and discusses or presents it to the rest of the team afterwards to ensure we're always learning and staying on top of recent research and technologies. The team attends (and presents at) conferences to further aid this research.


We've got a pretty relaxed atmosphere here with team lunches / after work drinks a regular occurrence (our local pub does excellent Thai food, we go frequently). Our customary office hours are week days, 10 til 6. We don't much like peak rush hour. If that doesn't suit, let us know and we can talk, we're flexible. Our office is based in Marylebone, London.


Benefits


Our salary range for the role is £70,000 to £85,000, depending on experience and interview performance. We offer 10% matched pension contributions as standard for all staff.


We do not currently offer other benefits such as private health or dental insurance, but we are open to negotiating if this is something you need.


Choose your own hardware & setup for your development environment. Adjustable standing desks provided

We have similar problems and constraints to high frequency trading firms, but in the sports betting world.


You'd be working closely with the CEO, CTO and Machine Learning research team to design and build the tooling & distributed cluster computing frameworks to support strategy research and development, help turn prototype trading models into production-ready systems as well as architecting the high-level design of the strategy software to minimise trading latency and scale effectively. Our strategy stack is Python based and communicates with our core infrastructure, written in Golang, by RPC. We use AWS EC2 and S3 for our cluster computation.


The ideal candidate will have a strong software engineering background, with broad experience across a range of topics related to general high performance computing such as multi-threading, networking, profiling and optimisation. Experience working with the NumPy/SciPy stack is essential, as is experience with tools like Cython, Numba etc for performance optimisation. Our work often involves a lot of custom algorithms, so an understanding of core mathematics and linear algebra are important. Knowledge of common machine learning algorithms & techniques is a plus, although not essential.


Most importantly we're looking for intellectually curious engineers who enjoy learning about new technologies and techniques, solving problems and encouraging engineering best practice. We have weekly research afternoons where each member of the team reads up about a new topic, technique or academic paper that interests them and discusses or presents it to the rest of the team afterwards to ensure we're always learning and staying on top of recent research and technologies.

Simple, progressive and gameful, we bring to life all the sound traditional financial principles we were brought up with (or wish we were!) and make managing money smart, fun & relevant for the modern world.

We believe the world would be a better place if we all talked about money a little earlier on in life. Research shows that our money habits are formed by the age of seven. That’s a pretty amazing opportunity to help give kids a head-start in building habits that will stick with them for life.


WHY ROOSTERMONEY?

RoosterMoney has been featured in The Times, Telegraph, Guardian, FT, Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Australian Herald to name a few.

We have a generous share option scheme and you’ll be joining us as we expand across a number of new territories.


THE ROLE:

We're looking for a software developer who has held mid-senior positions on front-end engineering teams, who will operate with a high level of autonomy.

You will be developing our core RoosterMoney app and working across the platform as a whole within our small but growing product team (currently 8), building an application that is used by families around the world. You have a passion for UX and UI, best practice development and building a product that delights users on a daily basis, taking pride in shipping quality code that is easy to test, maintain and build on. You care deeply about building applications with well thought out architecture.


Aside from developing front-end applications, we expect you will also become involved with ops and back-end work with our Node API’s where required.


We are a small team so it’s important that the successful candidate isn’t just technically highly competent but is a good cultural fit. We run daily stand-ups, two week sprint cycles, retrospectives and utilise Slack for Chat and Jira for ticket and stream management. We use video calls to stay in contact and monthly all team meetings (State of the Rooster). We gather together every quarter for All Hands to celebrate successes, share ideas and plan for the next quarter of hustle.


Apply if you want to:

  • Work closely with a small group of determined, like-minded people to reshape the way families talk and engage with money around the world.
  • Play a critical role in the design and development of our app.
  • Ship and take ownership of impactful new features and functionality.

In addition to a competitive salary:

  • Work with a fun, passionate team building something awesome.
