Position Details

Our client is an active investment management firm focused on delivering attractive performance and client portfolio solutions. They believe that technology will play a key role in the future of finance, and have built a robust trading platform to handle scale, complexity and customisation.

Their systems are almost all running on Linux and most of the code is in Python, with the full scientific stack – numpy, scipy, and pandas being some of the libraries they use extensively.

They use Kafka for data pipelines, Apache Beam for ETL, Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, ELK for log shipping and monitoring, Docker for containerisation, Kubernetes for container orchestration, OpenStack for our private cloud, and Ansible for architecture automation.
