This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly skilled and experienced cross-divisional team to deliver on several programmes of work, delivering technology solutions to enable the LSEG Index business which includes the well-known brand FTSE Russell. The role will be focused on demand from the business for our new Data Platform and Services for Index (IDPS); primarily to deliver on the strategic Index Refactoring programme, as well as deliver against ongoing demand for data services from the BAU Index Portfolio.
