Who are FRM? Man FRM is part of Man Group, and provides a full range of investment services and capabilities to help clients invest in and maximise the benefits they receive from hedge funds. FRM works with clients in a variety of ways from managing portfolios of hedge funds on a discretionary basis to sharing our global resources, data and analytical tools with our clients' internal teams.

The Role:

The FRM dev team is responsible for the continued growth, evolution and support of the systems that are essential to FRM's ongoing success, by collaborating with hedge fund professionals across fund manager research, quantitative analysis, client services and investment operations.

The team works to improve our technology stack as we go, refactoring or replacing systems that fail to meet our standards, and creatively introducing new technologies to meet business goals. This is the ideal time to join our efforts, as we move to technologies such as .NET Core, ASP.NET Core Web API, scalable micro-services, and HTML5. We work closely with the other dev teams at Man, sharing ideas, discussing technical solutions, and collaborating on shared libraries for common problems.

It's not just code that we seek to improve; to ensure we're frequently delivering robust systems to our users we are improving our practices with greater emphasis on Agile delivery, user story definition, BDD, DevOps, and modern platform monitoring techniques.
