“Above all, I love the technical excellence and the collaborative atmosphere of G-Research. That’s why I chose to come back as a full-time engineer.”
After completing a two-year technical degree in France, I obtained my MEng Computing in 2016 from Imperial College. As part of my degree, I was required to do an industrial placement. I had interviews with several companies, but G-Research really stood out. Every single person that I spoke to came across in a personable and intelligent way. This internship gave me the rich experience I was looking for as I learned a lot from working full stack and being given meaningful projects.
“I worked as a Software Engineer for about five years. Now I manage a team of 15 people.”
I have been at G-Research for over ten years, having joined after obtaining my PhD in Theoretical Computer Science from Imperial College. I had done a few internships at some big investment banks and wanted to work for a company that was different from the large multinationals. I really enjoy working as a manager as I still occasionally get to be involved with the technical aspects of development.
“The work has been challenging at times but very satisfying”
After finishing High School in Romania I moved to London and started my degree at Imperial College, where I studied the MEng Joint Mathematics and Computer Science course. I had heard that G-Research hired excellent people and had a healthy company culture, and I was pleased to confirm this. A big plus is that people here are easy going and a pleasure to work with.
“With an emphasis on quality, a refreshing lack of politics and a wealth of interesting and hard problems, G-Research is an excellent place to be writing code.”
After studying Computer Science at Cambridge I worked with video and telephony tech at a couple of startups. I’m now the tech lead for a team whose mission is to create cutting-edge tools, libraries and systems for our colleagues. I must say that after more than seven years at G-Research, the calibre of the people is still one of the best things about working here.
