Working on one of our self-organizing teams you'll pair with other engineers, product managers, and users to set and achieve goals that help GLG continue to define the future of work.

By integrating more and more data we are constantly striving to boost recall while maintaining high numbers for accuracy and keeping an interface that is simple and intuitive. * Artificial Intelligence -- We currently make 10% of our matches with AI and machine learning techniques and are looking to steadily increase that percentage. This is a great start, but there is huge opportunity to improve our accuracy and scale. Engineering at GLG We are a rapidly growing team with a lot of programmers and relatively few managers -- a trend we're hoping to keep as we continue to expand the team. We value results and flexibility over process and dogma. As a GLG engineer you will: * Pick your own team and work with that team to set and achieve business objectives. * Program in the languages you and your team choose. * Work remotely when you want, but also access any of our amazing offices, worldwide. * Make top-of-market salary.

Our clients rely on GLG's 650,000+ member-experts and 1,800 employees around the globe to provide 24/7 insight and exceptional service within a rigorous compliance framework.
