NON TRANSITIVE DICE CHALLENGE

Efron created a set of dice for which "red beats green beats blue beats white beats red", each with 66.7% probability.

Can you do better?

Can you improve on the 66.7%? What if the dice are replaced by arbitrary random variables? What is the best "mutual beating probability" if you have only three dice? Or more than four?

We are based just off Tottenham Court Road in the vibrant West End. This means that a short walk will take you to Oxford Street, Theatreland, Leicester Square, the British Museum, Regents Park or even St Pancras International ahead of a weekend in Paris! After work there are pubs galore, and those wanting more than a quick drink can head to Soho which is on our doorstep. What's more there are three tube lines within five minutes of the office – you really couldn't ask for a better location.

In addition to this, we offer a range of benefits & perks that are outlined below.

    Avantages

    Working at G-Research has been like a breath of fresh air. You are surrounded by ambitious, driven and talented colleagues (some of whom are genuinely world-class experts in their field), which are contagious traits that drive you to improve. More than this, you have the resources and backing to exceed your goals and have a real impact on the company. The salaries and benefits are excellent, there are ample development opportunities, and the scope of extracurricular activities (including the legendary company weekends away to Europe) is the envy of all my friends. Love my job!

    Inconvénients

    Historically, I understand there have been some blockers related to security. These are barely noticeable now, continues to improve, and is heavily outweighed by all the other positives. Work from homes opportunities have been limited but, again, are starting to increase.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you’re doing, keep listening to employees, and keep taking proactive steps to progress the company – and G-Research will continue to be a great employer.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à G-Research.

    Entretien

    I applied to G-Research via a recruitment agency. The first step was to take a written, 90-minute test. I don't live near London, so they booked a room in my city where the test was administered. Some of the questions were actually vey tough. The test covered topics in stats, probability, programming and some finance.
