Production Engineer

Global Quant Firm


Posted 4 Wks Ago

Salary: up to £150k + bonus



Lively, positive spirit of a start-up, with the stability of a longer-established player, this leading quant firm is looking for a pragmatic Production Engineer to join one of their most established teams, where you’ll take ownership of post-trading analysis and operational issues.

Developers here are highly valued and well-rewarded for hard work, and as a result, are some of the brightest minds from across the trading, tech and start-up industries. This role will involve working with colleagues across the business, writing and maintaining a complex Python infrastructure to make the deployment process for production trading scalable, fault-tolerant and automated. You will also identify and fix issues which prevent trading of deployment of new code.

Here, technology is viewed as key to their continued success, where traders and software engineers work on their own proprietary trading algorithms. If you would value having the autonomy to pursue your own projects to help the team’s trading, and manage your own workload, this role would be perfect for you.
