Statistical Modelling

Preplay and inplay predictive modelling of sports is our main focus. Our CEO has a Doctorate in Statistics from the University of Oxford and we can therefore take on highly theoretical work. Our CEO was fortunate to be mentored in the field of sports statistics by Dr. Stuart Coles, co-author of the Dixon and Coles (1997) paper on forecasting football scores. Dixon and Coles' ground-breaking work launched the football modelling industry.

Technology

We have done extensive work on Unix platforms, developing real-time trading applications and linking data feeds to trading platforms. We have optimised clients' trading applications and pricing libraries, often improving speeds by orders of magnitude by identifying and eliminating performance bottlenecks.

Using state of the art computer science and machine learning to model sport

We use state of the art computer science and statistical methods to model sport. We come to work each day for the thrill of discovering and quantifying the dynamics of sporting performance. We do what we do because we love learning, we love being the first in the world to make new discoveries, and using those discoveries to implement simple, elegant, reliable software.

Success to the outside world is being recognised as one of the only companies in the world to be able to tackle the most challenging problems in sports analytics. Success in the eyes of our clients is a substantial and sustainable increase in their profits. Success inside the organisation is achieving these two goals but also growing a skilled, motivated, engaged and productive team who all share our passion for discovering new insights into sport.

To achieve all our goals we must hire the best employees and provide them with an excellent work environment. We’re always looking for team members who can bring new perspectives and life experiences. If you’re looking for a place that values your curiosity, passion, and desire to learn, if you’re seeking colleagues who are big thinkers eager to take on fresh challenges as a team, then you should consider applying to join us.
