The Client

One of the world's largest hedge funds, this is an excellent opportunity to join the Responsible Investment Tech team in a pivotal, wide-ranging development role. With a flat-structured, 'no-attitude' working environment, this is a great time to join as engineering is currently undergoing significant investment.

The Role

Working in small, diverse, cross-functional teams, you'll collaborate closely with the Responsible Investment team on the strategic build-out of cutting-edge technology to achieve ESG goals. Your projects will be varied and cover everything from onboarding the best vendor ESG datasets for research, analysis & reporting, creating Python APIs to facilitate easy access to ESG data, to developing tools to ensure actionable ESG data is available firm-wide

The majority of the company's systems run on Linux and most code is written in Python, including extensive use of numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn, etc. But they're also constantly evaluating new technologies, tools and libraries, 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 handling large datasets (structured and unstructured)
  • Proponent of collaborative software engineering techniques and agile methods
  • Solid Linux platforms experience with various scripting languages
  • Working knowledge of at least one database technology, e.g. MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Snowflake, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server
  • Degree with high mathematical and computing content - Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, etc. - from a top-tier university

Nice to have
  • Proficient with a range of open-source frameworks and development tools, e.g. NumPy SciPy/Pandas, Spark, Jupyter
  • Previous experience of working with financial market data or alternative data
  • Familiarity with the ESG space
  • Experience with git

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
