Python Engineer/Developer/Programmer – Python, Django, Flask, Pandas, NumPy, JavaScript, React, SQL, AWS, Equities, Front Office, Investment Management

A Senior Python Engineer is urgently sought after by one of our leading Investment Management clients to join on a contract basis.
The position will sit within Front Office Equities Technology, specifically working on their bespoke Portfolio Management platforms, helping to both modernise the applications (using a cloud-native approach) and ramp up their exposure across the wider business, with a focus on international growth.  
To do this, you will work directly alongside both the core Portfolio Management Development function and the Equities Portfolio Management business to understand their requirements and deliver modern technology solutions.
In addition to core Python engineering, this will also involve analysing and processing complex financial data using tools such as NumPy and Pandas.

To be successful, you will require the following:

  • A strong background in Python development, working on large data-driven platforms.

  • An interest in Data Analysis working with tools such as Pandas, NumPy and SciPy

  • Hands-on experience with JavaScript is ideal, preferably using the React framework

  • Good experience in SQL engineering

  • Any exposure to cloud-based development (preferably AWS) is highly beneficial.

  • A proven ability to engage confidently with both internal and external stakeholders across the business and technology.

  • Ideally you will have a good understanding of the Front Office lifecycle (Equities or Fixed Income), with any knowledge of Portfolio Management being extremely beneficial, however any experience across Buy or Sell side is a strong plus


This is an excellent opportunity for a talented Python Engineer to join a truly tier 1 Investment Manager, delivering high quality technology solutions within Front Office Equities.

Please note, this position will be offered as a Fixed-Term Contract (FTC) initially for a period of 12 months.
