We are working with an elite hedge fund who are looking to add a data analyst / engineer to their team in London. They are looking for a top tier candidate with strong Python programming skills coupled with advanced knowledge of statistics. Due to the dynamic nature of the team and the regular interaction with the quant and PM team strong communication skills are vital along with knowledge and interest in financial markets. Candidates should have exceptional academic backgrounds in highly quantitative subjects from top tier universities. There is scope for this role to evolve into a Data Scientist position.

The hedge fund we are working with are one of the most attractive to join in London. Their culture is one that blends high performace with a supportive and friendly atmosphere. They are relatively new but already established firm who have a highly enviable reputation in the market. As they are still relatively small, there is great opportunity to work on greenfield projects and work directly with extremely senior stakeholders in the business. The fact this role reports direct to the CTO is an example of this. 

They are looking to add a data analyst / engineer to the team to work on a range of data centric tasks including but not limited to data assessment, extraction and storage, data cleansing, data standards, infrastructure and management. This role will work very closely with the quant team so this position requires knowledge of quantitative and statistical knowledge to be able to collaborate accordingly.

There will be substantial ownership of responsibilities from an early stage in this position so the successful candidate will be someone who enjoys such pressure and who is capable to working to high level on an independent basis.

Requirements

  • Top tier Education – specifically a MSc from a globally renowned (top 10) University in a highly quantitative subject (Maths, Stats, Physics, Computer Science etc)
  • Exceptional Python programming skills (as a functional language, not just scripting)
  • Other programming skills a plus
  • Understanding of financial markets
  • Strong communication skills both in person and in writing

This is a unique opportunity to join a top hedge fund in an environment that allows for skillset development (supportive senior colleagues) and excellent chances for owning responsibilities and associated career progression.

We are only able to respond to highly relevant candidates.
