The Role

As an Engineering Manager within the Risk Engineering team you will work with Investment Risk Managers and other Engineers to deliver novel solutions to investment teams and executives within Man Group. Your team's work enables daily risk analysis and ongoing risk research while supporting and refining the existing processes. You will collaborate with other risk engineering teams providing risk data, analytics and visualisation primitives.

This is a highly collaborative role, requiring linking together data & analytics from varied sources into a uniform, actionable, high level risk-focused view. We are looking for a hands-on technology manager with excellent product management skills and good financial markets knowledge. You will be continuously educating and looking for ways to grow your team in terms of capability and knowledge.

Your role will be varied, including overseeing the implementation and rollout of new risk models, optimising, and maintaining analysis and reporting from 100s TiB data, architecting and implementing new datamarts and providing thought leadership and strategic direction for the future architecture of the Man Risk Platform. You will be continuously looking for ways to link together much of our risk subsystems into a consistent high-level view. The role is a unique opportunity to play a pivotal part in building a state-of-the-art investment risk platform, aligning with our complex trading needs and advancing our multi-year business goals.

The Team

Risk Engineering are part of the wider Man Group Enterprise Engineering team, comprising over 100 individuals. We have varied backgrounds ranging from Classics to Advanced Computer Science, but share a passion for trying to find elegant working solutions to hard problems. We work side by side with the quant part of the business, both supporting them in their day to day work and building scalable, strategic platforms to position the company for future growth.

Our Technology

Within Risk Engineering we run a mixture of Linux and Windows, and use Python and C# as primary languages, with an emphasis on Python and the Python scientific stack: numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn, etc. We implement the systems that require the highest data throughput in Java. We implement most of our long running services and analytics in C#.

We use Airflow for workflow management, Kafka for data pipelines, Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, ELK for logs, Grafana, Prometheus & InfluxDb for metrics, Docker and Kubernetes for containerisation, OpenStack for our private cloud, Ansible and Terraform for architecture automation, and Slack for internal communication. We heavily utilise ArcticDB (https://arcticdb.io/) our in-house developed DataFrame Database alongside SQL Server and ClickHouse stores. Our technology list is never static: we constantly evaluate new tools and libraries.
