We're working with a profitable FinTech who need 4 x mid - snr level Python Engineers to join the core platform team, working on high volume data analytics that are close to becoming industry standard in the Hedge Fund sector.

Specific industry experience is not required.

You need at least 5yrs of commercial Python development experience, ideally in a large-scale system. It doesn't need to be finance-related but a desire to work in and learn the financial markets is essential.

As well as strong Python knowledge, experience with some of the following will be useful (what you don't know, full training will be provided):

  • MySQL
  • RabbitMQ
  • Docker
  • AWS (EC2, S3, Serverless, Cloudformation
  • GitLab
  • Elastic stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana)

The interview process is as follows:

  1. You spend 30 minutes talking to the Head of Development - he will run through your CV and talk to you in detail about the role.

  1. At home coding test in your own time - 3 basic skills test questions (approx. 1hr)

  1. Technical VC interview - approx. 90 minutes with the Head of Dev and a senior engineer, talking through your coding test plus a live problem-solving exercise.

  1. Chat with the CEO, who'll give you a broader overview of the business goals and make sure you're up for the ride!

That's it.

These roles are only open to British citizens, EU Citizens with UK residency or candidates with ILR - unfortunately no Tier 2-5 Visa will be able to apply on this occasion.
