Production Support Manager

Tech-Driven Global Hedge Fund


Posted 2 Mths Ago

The Client

This is an outstanding opportunity to join one of the largest alternative asset managers in the world in a wide-ranging leadership role. With a flat-structured, ‘no-attitude’ working environment, this is a great time to join as engineering is undergoing significant investment.

The Role

They’re looking for a highly motivated manager to join Production Support, a 3rd line team which digs into logs, SQL tables and queries, looks through source code, troubleshoots infrastructure, and pores through performance metrics – as well as building the tools to make all of those things easier. You’ll work closely with software engineers to support traders, portfolio managers and clients by building and maintaining complex systems that underpin the firm’s platform and central functions.

The majority of the company’s systems run on Windows and most code is written in C#; they use Microsoft SQL Server, Kafka and MSMQ for messaging. But they’re also constantly evaluating new technologies, tools and libraries.


  • Proven experience in a management or team leadership role within Application or Production Support
  • Track record of managing a complex application ecosystem
  • Knowledge of financial markets, asset management processes, and market data
  • A good understanding of core infrastructure components supporting an application & troubleshooting – Windows, Linux, Kafka & MSMQ, load balancing
  • Scripting ability (e.g. Python, PowerShell or Go), one or more database technologies (e.g. SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MongoDB), and monitoring & observability tools (e.g. Nagios, Prometheus, Grafana, the ELK stack)

Nice to have

  • Ability to read, debug, and write C# and SQL
  • Implementing SRE and DevOps practices to improve support
  • Vendor management


  • 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
