OMS Developer

Man Group plc London, United Kingdom
Posted 3 days ago Hybrid Job Permanent Competitive
The Role

As an engineer within the AHL OMS team you'll be building the Order Management System underpinning the systematic investment process for AHL. This is an opportunity to work closely with our trading desk, quant strategy teams, and operations to deliver an Order Management System which is flexible, robust, and performant to safely trade millions of orders annually and enable the development of new investment strategies. You'll have direct exposure to a wide set of asset classes covering both listed and OTC markets, building deep understanding in how they're executed and booked.

The Team

We are a small team within our Markets Platform Engineering group, with the OMS sitting between AHL strategies and our execution systems which act as the interface to the market. We're in the core position of the investment process and interact with many other parts of the firm, providing a unique opportunity to build comprehensive knowledge across the trading lifecycle. It's a particularly exciting time to join as we're currently investing heavily, evaluating our stack to increase both its performance and agility in onboarding new flows to support AHL's future growth.

Our Technology

Our systems run on Linux via containers, with most systems built using Java. We use Git for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, Docker for containerisation, Ansible for architecture automation, and Slack for internal communication. That said, our technology is never static: we constantly evaluate new tools and libraries.

Working Here

Man Tech has a small company, no-attitude feel. It is flat structured, open, transparent and collaborative, and you will have plenty of opportunity to grow and have enormous impact on what we do. We are actively engaged with the broader technology community.
  • We host and sponsor London's PyData and Machine Learning Meetups
  • We open-source some of our technology including parts of our Data Platform. See https://github.com/man-group
  • We regularly talk at leading industry conferences, and tweet about relevant technology and how we're using it. See @ManQuantTech
We're fortunate enough to have a fantastic open-plan office overlooking the River Thames, and continually strive to make our environment a great place in which to work. We offer flexible working, competitive compensation, a generous holiday allowance, health and other benefits. We are also committed to continuous learning and development via coaching, mentoring, conference attendance and sponsoring academic and professional qualifications.
