  • £200,000 plus bonus & benefits
  • London, , United Kingdom
  • Permanent
  • Software Engineering
We're seeking a passionate and experienced software engineer to spearhead the creation of a brand new Data Engineering team. You'll play a pivotal role in building a robust system for processing and managing daily data that fuels our entire organization. This includes critical information like corporate actions, fundamentals, and index membership data.

The Focus:
The vision is not to overwhelm with countless data sources. Instead, they prioritize collecting the most business-critical data, both present and future needs considered. The aim is to create a singular, clean, and readily accessible repository that's seamlessly integrated. As the owner of this daily data, you'll be responsible for anticipating their evolving business needs and ensuring a well-structured, yet streamlined data schema.

Leadership Style:
They believe in empowering leaders who focus on exceptional engineering rather than solely managing a team. This role will heavily involve hands-on engineering work.

What You'll Bring:
  • Several years of experience working with financial data, particularly with an in-depth understanding of corporate actions.
  • Proficiency as a confident programmer with at least one statically typed language (e.g., Java, C++, Go).
  • Strong analytical and statistical skills for maintaining clean data. The ability to perform regressions and possess some knowledge of statistics or basic machine learning would be a plus.
  • A willingness to learn and integrate with our existing software stack (primarily Go). Prior Go experience is not required.
  • Be at the forefront of building a critical system for the company's success.
  • Work in a collaborative and fast-paced environment.
  • Opportunity for professional growth and development.
  • Competitive salary and benefits pack
