Marshall Wace

Machine Learning Intern

Sep 19, 2023


Get a taste of working in a fast-paced, tech-led environment on any of our London office. Our intern programme provides the opportunity to work directly with our Development teams. These projects support areas such as Finance, Operations, Risk, Trading, and Portfolio Management.

During your internship, you will gain valuable hands-on experience with a multitude of technologies and disciplines such as devops, data engineering, cyber security, web development, business intelligence, software engineering, and stream processing.

We are on the look-out for people who have a real passion for technology.

This is a 4-month internship in partnership with Imperial College London’s MSc AI course. During your time with us you will hone your ML ops and applied ML skills while working on a project within the ML team.  You’ll join a cutting-edge team with the ability to assume as much responsibility and autonomy as you can take on.

The project that you will work on will be of real importance to the team. As one of our recent areas of development, you will be an integral part of the development of our ML capabilities.  
All interns receive end-to-end support from our teams – from an initial induction to a performance review as you complete time with us. This includes personalised mentoring, regular seminars with senior managers and key staff, social events and the chance to participate in the firm’s charitable activities. At the end of the internship, you will present your project to the entire Technology team. 

This placement is ideal for an innovative problem solver who can demonstrate inventive and creative use of technology. Successful participants will have the possibility to return full time as a graduate when they complete their studies.
