The Client

One of the world's largest hedge funds, this is an excellent opportunity to join one of the most prestigious technology teams in systematic trading in a wide-ranging development role.

The Role

Looking for an experienced engineer to join the Data Engineering team. You'll collaborate with the Data Science team, delivering unique solutions to solve their big data challenges. You'll also design & implement strategies and tools to monitor & validate data quality for thousands of datasets in use across the firm.

Their core systems almost all run on Linux and most code is in Python, including extensive use of numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn, etc. Systems that require the highest data throughput are implemented in Java, and they use Dataiku, Snowflake, Prometheus, and ArcticDB heavily. New tools and libraries are constantly assessed, meaning you can shape the technology landscape and make an impact early on.

Requirements
  • Expert programming experience (ideally in Python)
  • Understanding of the challenges of dealing with large datasets (structured and unstructured)
  • Solid Linux platforms experience with various scripting languages
  • Knowledge of modern practices for ETL, data engineering and stream processing
  • Degree with high mathematical and computing content - Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, etc. - from a top-tier university
  • Working knowledge of at least one database technology, e.g. MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Snowflake, Oracle

Nice to have
  • Proficient with a range of open-source frameworks and development tools e.g. NumPy /Pandas, Spark, Apache Kafka
  • Previous experience of working with financial market data, especially tick data
  • Experience with AWS

Benefits
  • Competitive salary + generous bonuses
  • Extra perks including a personal development allowance and sponsorship
  • Central London office with a very smart, friendly tech team
  • Flat-structured, transparent and collaborative environment, 'no-attitude' culture
  • Regular social events, plus annual company trips and team offsites
