About White Swan Data
At White Swan Data we decide what is worth betting on. Over the past 15 years the technology at the heart of our business has produced consistent and significant returns for our clients. We are a small but rapidly growing team of mathematicians, data scientists and software engineers constantly striving to refine our world class betting models while also researching and deploying new ones.
Our work bridges three domains, each challenging in its own right - betting and gambling, quantitative research and software development. The nature of our work and the relative immaturity of modern betting markets means opportunities to exploit are not in short supply. But people with sufficient skill and versatility to attack these projects are hard to find! So we are always looking for graduates or working practitioners in any technical discipline with an aptitude for analysing betting markets or for writing software to bet into those markets. Our very best people combine those skills with the capacity to see projects through from start to finish, and much else besides.
