· 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.

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