Junior-Mid Python Developer - Expanding Hedge Fund: Excellent career opportunity for a bright and motivated Python developer to join the technology team at this rapidly expanding hedge fund. The company is a systematic hedge fund - a well-funded CTA (commodity trading advisor) - with a top management team who have a highly successful track-record in the industry.

Python Developer - the company:

The company offers a great working environment. Small enough to be politics-free and for you to have a visible and rewarding impact. As they are a systematic HF, their processes are entirely automated and, with this, they have a rich technology environment.

Python Developer - the role:

Joining a team of 6 technology resource staff, with more off-shore (who are going to be in-sourced), this exciting role will see you utilising your full development skills, working on various projects, with the longer-term aim of helping transform the company to an institutional-grade CTA.

Python Developer - the person:

The CTO requires a Python Developer with perhaps 1-3 years experience, within Banking or Finance; someone who is a bright, logical thinker and problem-solver. Python is the key language, now and moving-forward. NumPy is used and Pandas will likely be utilised soon. There is a smattering of Java (mainly for API use - to access Reuters data - but this is minimal) and a little C# (though this is going to be 'retired'). MS SQL Server is the main database, with Mongo keeping track on the trading model data.

This role requires a good blend of technical skills with user interaction abilities - strong requirements gathering and analysis.

Python Developer - summary:

For the right individual this could be a terrific opportunity. In addition to technical growth, the company is ready and able to offer more insight into the workings of a busy hedge-fund; invaluable experience for you going forward in this industry. The company is fast-paced and agile and needs people who want to be part of its success. Services advertised by Dupen are those of an Agency.
