The Role

Our Technology

Our technology platform consists of a mix of Windows and Mac laptops and desktops.

In our data centres our servers run a mix of Linux and Windows (physical, and virtualized in VMWare and OpenStack). Kubernetes is widely used and all internal applications are deployed in containers. Linux is used to provide a developer/researcher desktop environment, accessed through Citrix.

Our technologists and researchers use a constantly evolving set of tools and libraries. Most of our code is in Python, with the full scientific stack: numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn to name a few of the open-source libraries we use extensively. We implement the systems that require the highest data throughput in Java and C++.

We use Airflow for workflow management, Kafka for data pipelines, Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana & Prometheus for metrics collection, ELK for log shipping and monitoring, Docker and Kubernetes for containerisation, OpenStack for our private cloud, Ansible and Terraform for architecture automation, and Slack for internal communication.
