CTO at tier 1 Hedge Fund is targeting top level junior developers with Financial Services experience to join a varied and strategic technology team.

Attribution Search is currently targeting high performing junior developers to join a strategic and forward-thinking technology team at a top Multi Strat Hedge Fund. 

The tech stack covers C#, .NET, SQL, Python, Tableau visualisation and Powershell to name a few. 

The tech projects are varied across multiple business lines covering back and front end development, greenfield, upgrade and maintenance.  All development initiatives add significant value to the Portfolio Managers, Traders and the business and technology is viewed as the vehicle for the fund to reach its appetite for further growth and scale. 

Given the smaller and flatter set up of the hedge fund this role is extremely visible, reporting into the CTO and working alongside the Head of Development.  The role is far from reactive looking to challenge the status quo and improve the technology already in place and therefore will require the self-motivation and work ethic to match. 


As a Developer in an experienced and highly engaging team, this seat offers an accelerated learning environment and huge personal trajectory.


Duties will include but not limited to:   

  • Writing code both under supervision and autonomously
  • Data Structures and Algorithms
  • Using a diverse array of coding languages with an initial focus on SQL
  • Building and analysing Data Sets and Data Warehousing
  • Bespoke Data production for Portfolio Managers to support Investment Decision
  • Produce functional specifications
  • Follow and interpret functional specifications
  • Developing applications and ensuring the quality of applications delivered to production
  • Engaging directly with the business and ensuring technology delivers significantly to the Investment team and the wider business

 

This is mostly likely to suit a candidate at an Investment Bank or larger corporate house who is looking to gain the benefits that converting to a smaller hedge fund brings.  You will welcome the change in environments from a culture of cost cutting and maintenance to that of growth, change and continuous improvement. 

 

Given the demands of the role, the right candidate will have experience in/come from

  • 1-2 years Development experience within financial services
  • Excellent academics, ideally Computer Science or equivalent STEM like degree
  • Excellent technical understanding of:
    • Structured Design and Software Engineering, especially OO programming
    • Relational Databases
    • Data Structures and Algorithms
  • Strong business knowledge, particularly asset class knowledge, risk and trading
