Job Description

Tell me about the company

We like to do things differently. Nominated as one of the UK’s most disruptive companies, we are experts in financial risk forecasting. While other companies try and manage or mitigate risk using historical data to anticipate future events, we detect changes in the market as they happen with absolutely no hard wired models or other pre-existing assumptions.

Our world class unsupervised machine learning technology engine provides advance warning of major directional market movements, hours or days before they happen. No other company out there is doing this. This risk forecasting technology gives traders, wealth managers and brokers real time market insights and decision analytics, vital for today’s ever changing financial climate.

As Full Stack Developer, you will be heavily involved in designing, developing and deploying the product suite responsible for providing these unique insights across most global markets and asset classes, yes even a bit of crypto coverage!

We provide forecasting instruments for a wide range of different markets including emerging markets and ESG sectors. And the list doesn’t stop there. An ambitious, fast-moving company, we are continually looking for new ways to expand and develop as demonstrated by the diverse and ever-growing list of products we offer. Our customer base is growing rapidly as we develop our highly sought-after product range. The AI FinTech space is one of the most exciting spaces to be, the developments in this industry are changing the world of business and beyond. Here at AlgoDynamix, we are excited to be the drivers of that change.

Tell me about working for AlgoDynamix

Though we say so ourselves, we are a relaxed, friendly bunch who enjoy a beer on Friday as much as getting our heads round the latest developments in AI. We are a young business, growing rapidly, that started out as a spin off from Cambridge University. As anyone who has dipped their toe into the world of start-ups, working for AlgoDynamix is not your bog standard 9 to 5 job. We offer flexible hours and a dynamic, fast-paced and exciting working environment. You’ll be based in Barclays Eagle Labs in the centre of the beautiful city of Cambridge with the occasional trip to London’s Canary Wharf. The labs provide a friendly, collaborative office space for progressive, like-minded individuals at the heart of Cambridge’s AI hub. Our salaries are competitive and we can offer part or full time positions.

If you’re interested and can see yourself working here at AlgoDynamix, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
