Our client is an established Asset Manager with exceptional pedigree. With offices in Sydney and London, the firm offers a quantamental investment approach across long-short and long only global equities strategies.

Key to their research and rigorous investment decision making processes are in-house built and be-spoke quantitative tools.

These tools ingest large data sets across thousands of market indicators from a variety of sources, but their performance is attributed to the creative quantitative data engineers, who shape and develop these tools to drive meaningful insights.

As the senior engineer in the team you will take ownership of the front-to-back development of these tools, including the delivery of commercial grade web-based applications which interface with both internal and external parties, alongside the management of their data environment and infrastructure. This will include the re-platforming and migration of their existing R based applications to an in-house built solution that will be architected and designed by the Systems Engineer.

In order to be successful in this rewarding and high performance role, you will need to possess deep technical software development skills (such as PHP/Python; Java /.NET; R; SQL; JavaScript/CSS and Linux OS) and possess a commercial aptitude that allows you to question the norm, pick-up new concepts quickly, problem solve and demonstrate creative and independent thinking.

There is the flexibility here for you to show case your technical skills and help shape the direction of this build in a technology stack that not only plays to your strengths, but showcases best-in-class technology and design.
