We look for students, young academics and professionals across different disciplines from economic and financial research, software engineering to business management or other sciences.
If you have bold idea, Lykke will help you to realise it.
We invite you to submit your CV, a short motivation letter and any other material that you want to share with us, such as a recent research paper or sample code.
Members of the network participate in our research and development projects on a time and material or fixed fee basis. Lykke project work is open source and can be used for scientific publication.

Topics of research and development are:

  • Market making and investment management: Using our paper: The Alpha Engine: Designing an Automated Trading Algorithm, see link as a starting point, we are looking to improve our algorithms and add new features of risk management.
  • Software projects: We look to innovate blockchain technology and face software challenges – currently we are looking for crowd-based mechanisms to store private keys.
  • Social networks: Lykke is active in social networks and has an interest to investigate network effects. We launch projects to better understand network activity and what factors influence different outcomes.
  • Value generation: The Lykke company is organized as an emergent organization. We want to better understand, who and how contributes to organizations success.
  • Economic and political impact and new business models: The creation of a global marketplace for all asset classes has a profound impact on the global economic system.  

    Please submit your CV with a motivation letter of why you want to join the research network. The motivation letter can include a research proposal.

    Prizes in this competition are an invitation to participate at one of the research conferences or workshops organized by Lykke.

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them in the project comments.

No winners! Wow

Unfortunately, for this project, none of the submitted results matched our experts' expectations, so we decided not to award the first prize.

Hi there, how many "winners" will there be in total? Just curious to know how big the research community is going to be. Thanks!
