Summary

Based in London, they are looking to expand their exchange trading development group, which takes trading ideas from the Quant Research team and makes them reality utilising the best technology.

As Python Engineer, you’ll be part of a small team – which works to their advantage – responsible for managing a global network plus multiple hundreds of servers across almost 50 sites. Sitting in between datacentre support and the main development function, you’ll leverage your programming skills to find the correct solution from the start, rather than using repetitive manual work or ad-hoc scripting.

Benefits

  • Significant compensation package – you are making a direct impact on the PnL
  • Collaborative and friendly environment with highly engaged colleagues

  • Breakfast and lunch provided four days a week
