The sky is the limit in this position at Numerai. You’ll be joining a small, elite team of mathematicians and machine learning experts. We want a ferocious entrepreneur who will relentlessly push the company forward in every direction.
Numerai is a global artificial intelligence tournament to predict the stock market. You download our data, build a model, and upload your predictions. Because we encrypt our datasets with structure-preserving encryption techniques, we're able to give away all of our data for free. This turns the stock market into a machine learning problem — so you don’t need to know anything about finance to participate.
We believe there is predictive power in distributed artificial intelligence — so we built a hedge fund for you, that’s going to trade your predictions. You don't need capital. You don't need data. You just apply your mind.
