Come for the challenge. Stay for the company
If you are in your senior year and you are one of those that love to put their abilities to the test, have a look at our Winter Development Challenge. If you solve it properly, you’ll get an internship for the academic year here at ETS. And maybe interesting career opportunities too if things go well.
The Challenge is an algorithmic problem that the sharpest minds will love to resolve. We are all very busy, we know. But if you find some time to do it anyway, it’s probably because you are going to have fun doing so. And that’s exactly what we like the most: people that enjoy thinking, programming, learning, growing…
You may choose which language to use to program your algorithm. We work with Python and it’s our favourite nowadays, but feel free to pick the one you feel more comfortable with.
Efficiency, creativity, clean coding, and simplicity will be valued.
Show us how you think and how you face problems. We will reward the three candidates who solve the problem in the most original and efficient way (if any). The winners will enjoy an internship with our IT team during the rest of the academic year. It's a paid internship: the wage is 900€ a month for full-time (if the collaboration agreement with your University allows full-time internships. If it does not, we will arrange a part-time one).
Our company builds algorithmic investment strategies using the latest scientific techniques and technological tools. We organise ourselves in autonomous teams. Each team is responsible for a project, for choosing which methodologies and which technologies to use. We encourage life-long learning and curiosity.
You have ONE WEEK to complete the challenge*, starting from the day we visit your university. You may download the problem instructions below. Please attach your curriculum vitae in the CV area (to get to the form, click where it says 'This is for me' at the bottom left of the page). Submit your solutions in the 'Challenge results' area (also at the link on the bottom left).
We will post the results and contact the winners by email or phone. We wish you the best of lucks!
