Technical Lead - Investment Management
£80,000 + bonus + benefits
Technology: Python, Excel VBA, Machine Learning, Java, SQL
A global investment management firm based in the heart of the City are seeking a technical lead to help take their front office team to the next level.
Currently, this team operates in a reactive way to challenges that are thrown up from the front office trading team. The purpose of this hire is to take this exceptionally talented team and help them to take the solutions they're currently building through to a more strategic, long-term solution for the business.
Initially, this is not intended to be a management role however this is certainly an option if that's where you want your career to go. The purpose of this role is to be a technical leader.
Technically, you will already be an expert in Python, Excel VBA and have some experience with machine learning, but you will also be someone who is aware of the broader technology landscape and someone who is not afraid to try new things and recommend different solutions.
If that sounds like you, you will be rewarded with an excellent salary package (the bonus will be discretionary, but targeted to be higher than 20%, the benefits are exceptional) and an environment where continuous improvement is actively encouraged. If you want to get AWS certified, for example, this will be actively encouraged.
