Join as a founding member of a brand new team building out a database and analytics framework from scratch within one of the leading Investment Banks on the street. The part of the business is one of the fastest growing and most profitable and are looking for a highly technical data engineer to have a significant influence in the build out. The impact of this team's work on the business will be very visible, as such your work will involve solving complex real world problems faced by the bank. Highly competitive compensation. Strong Python coding skills necessary!

My client is a Tier 1 Investment Bank looking to significantly expand their data analytics capabilities across many facets of the business including trading, sales and the franchise offering. The London-based team is headed up by an extremely experienced leader with a very strong track record in the investment banking industry. 


He is putting together a brand new team that will be creating, building and managing data across the bank to produce insights. Immediate deliverables include designing and building a completely new database unique to the bank, as well as a new analytics framework. He is looking for someone with the ambition to come into a seat and have a very visible impact on the business and the bank's PnL. 


The role has a high level of business engagement, and the impact of your work will be highly visible. Not only does this mean the work you'll be doing is solving interesting real world problems and building something from the ground-up, but also that the remuneration will be very competitive compared to data engineering seats in other organisations and reflect the impact you're having on the profitability of the bank. 


This will appeal to someone who has extensive experience, and who enjoys playing with large amounts of data and seeing the impact of their work on a day to day basis. Strong python coding skills are essential, as well as a good knowledge of machine learning frameworks/techniques and data-related technologies (i.e Hadoop, Spark), strong optimization skills, and a sense of entrepreneurship and ambition. For someone with the desire to throw themselves at the problems that need to be worked on, and get paid very well for doing so, this should be a very exciting prospect. 


The ideal candidate will have:

- Exceptional academic background in a quantitative/technical discipline from a leading academic institution

- Very strong Python coding skills

- Good experience with Big Data Technologies

- An interest in, and knowledge of Machine Learning frameworks and techniques

-Experience building data pipelines, databases, modelling large amounts of data etc

- No prior finance knowledge is necessary, however an interest in tackling data related challenges in the domain would be useful


This team has heavy backing from the business and have been able to pull in some very impressive figures to head it up. This is the opportunity to join a team that has all the pieces in place to be hugely successful over the coming years as one of the founding members.
