Data Engineer - £150k-£200k TC

Job description

Big tech is fragile and career outlook right now is very uncertain. What about working at a hedge fund where their growth is almost certain? This data engineering team hired multiple people last year – most from big-tech – and plan to do the same this year. A large portion of your work will technically be non-finance, with the main finance focused work completed by other teams. The real-world, complex data engineering problems are all yours. You’ll be joining a team that builds and has built thousands of ingestion pipelines, with data coming from every single potential avenue it possibly can. To get the best understanding of an investment, all data points are considered. You’ll bring the data into the business, build the data infrastructure around it and deliver the data to the right person in the business to build their investment models. Tech is also completely flexible. Most of the work is done within Python, C# and Scala with a range of databases. Snowflake is widely used, as are Docker and Kubernetes for containerisation. ETL and ELT tech are also used every day, primarily Airflow, Spark, Hive and a lot more. You’ll need to come from a strong academic background with some commercial experience in a data heavy software or data engineering role. Financial experience of some kind would be a huge plus, but absolutely not a requirement. Experience with as much of the tech stack above is preferred and most likely, but you don’t need experience with all. Picking up new tech will be part of your job. This is a $60 billion plus fund, where being at the cutting edge of technology in general, let alone finance, is key for them. With this amount of ambition, it’s why their bonuses can be some of the biggest in the industry. First year total compensation could be as high as £200,000 and this has the potential to get better year on year, based on your performance. When in the office you have a fully catered canteen with a Michelin standard chef, barista coffee, a gym and more. Want to explore (or to continue exploring) high-tech in the Hedge Fund world? No up-to-date CV required initially, we can work on updating it together if need be.
