GAM Systematic Cambridge is investment science in action. We apply our scientific backgrounds to developing statistical strategies and fully-automated execution systems, as well as optimising our Friday lunch order.
Our Culture Beyond Science
Our fascination with science and programming is evident in everything we do – when we socialise, do sports, celebrate our colleagues’ birthdays or invent new gadgets.
Wednesday Food OrderWe are so passionate about programming that even our monthly Wednesday lunch order is decided by a voting algorithm, which takes preferences and previous orders into account to ensure a variety of tasty food.
Baking - Chief Pastry OfficersOur ‘Chief Pastry Officers’ are in charge of making sure each employee has the best Birthday cake imaginable. Previously our pastry officers have made a server cake, Half Life, Lego blocks and impressively a Gustav Klimt ‘The Kiss’ cake.
Keen CyclistsCambridge is a city famed for its cycling culture. The cyclists amongst us organise regular rides out into the countryside, as well as annual cycling trips to the Pyrenees and French Alps. Bradley Wiggins' sleek track bike also takes pride of place in our office.
Passion for sportsMost days a group of us run along the picturesque riverside in Cambridge. It’s a great way to get out of the office together and come back energised for the afternoon. If running isn’t your thing, we also have a gym in our building, play football and head off for annual ski trips.
Dragon Boat RacingWe often participate in the annual Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival, in aid of Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT), which is the dedicated charity for Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals. Naturally, we don't shy away from the fancy dress code, winning the best dressed team award one year.
Games roomWe like solving puzzles, so we built a games room full of them. We also have table football and a piano. It’s a space where we can relax, take a break and refresh our minds before getting back to work on our projects.
