About The Role

I am working with a Trillion Dollar Asset management firm spanning across the UK& US. They are looking for an OO Python Developer to join their Fixed Income division and work on several business critical platforms and toolkits. This group generates and distributes core analytics that drive business decisions in the Front Office.


This firm is one of eleven trillion dollar asset managers, what sets them apart is two things:

  • Collaborative culture and true work-life balance

  • Agile Engineering mentality

  • What sets this firm out from others in the market is that they see tech as the key driver for the business. For this reason, they have just invested heavily in their front office tech as they look to expand their Engineering presence in London. This funding has launched a multitude of new projects, making it a pinnacle moment to join the business. Coming in at this crucial moment, you will have technical ownership and autonomy from the get-go, as well as the freedom to speak with the business and input your opinions.


  • They are looking for 4 years plus OO backend developer.

  • The systems are primarily written in OO Python, but they are happy to cross-train and will also look at any strong Java or C++ Developers who are happy to work in a Python environment.

  • 4 years+ experience in OO Python/Java/C++ programming

  • Cloud experience (using cloud commercially, doesn’t have to be AWS)

  • Interpersonal skills/ willingness to collaborate with your team and the business

  • This firm welcomes Engineers from both in and outside of finance, as they believe it brings in a good combination of ways of working – but those coming from outside of finance must show a willingness to learn the business domain


  • Above market standard base salary, with lucrative bonus structure grown year on year

  • Constant exposure to a strategic business area of the company without needed any prior experience within the financial domains

  • Opportunity to upskill in Full stack development (systems are primarily backend but you will gain exposure to JavaScript systems and tooling also) and AWS – You will be solving complex computer science problems alongside some of the best Engineers in the market
