Posted 5 days ago Hybrid Job Permanent Competitive
The Role

We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced engineer to join the Data Engineering team within Man Platform Technology. You will have the chance to boost your career in a fast-paced and ambitious team that strives to create state-of-the-art tools for a range of data-related activities including onboarding, analysis, sourcing, quality checking, and lifecycle management. We don't just have a standard data warehouse - our data estate is varied and highly optimised to deliver the needs of the business. Your challenges will be varied, involving:
  • Developing and maintaining core tools for analysts, quants, and engineers to on-board and analyse datasets at multi-terabyte-scale.
  • Collaborating with the Man Data Science team as we design and develop unique, bespoke solutions to solve their big data challenges.
  • Designing and implementing strategies and tools to monitor and validate the data quality for thousands of datasets in use at Man Group.
  • Working with front office engineering teams as they leverage our data platform.
  • Discovering and leveraging best-in-market 3rd party tools and cloud technologies that can help to optimise the full data pipeline from scouting to trading.


Our Technology

Our systems are almost all running on Linux and most of our code is in Python, with the full scientific stack: numpy, scipy, pandas to name a few of the libraries we use extensively. We implement the systems that require the highest data throughput in Java. Within Data Engineering we use Dataiku, Snowflake, Prometheus, and ArcticDB heavily.

We 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, Ansible for architecture automation, and Slack for internal communication. Our technology list 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. 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 organise regular social events, everything from photography through climbing, karting, wine tasting and monthly team lunches
  • We have annual away days and off-sites for the whole team
  • As well as PC's and Macs, in our office you'll also find numerous pieces of cool tech such as light cubes and 3D printers, guitars, ping-pong and table-football, and a piano.
We offer competitive compensation, a generous holiday allowance, various health and other flexible benefits. We are also committed to continuous learning and development via coaching, mentoring, regular conference attendance and sponsoring academic and professional qualifications.
