Grey suits, legacy systems, long hours - you know finance, right? Think again.
Founded in 2010, we're a small tech business run by programmers.
Now 80 people and growing, we're a close-knit team who enjoy learning and collaborating closely on interesting problems. Our people are Kind, Collaborative, Humble and Entrepreneurial - these values are important to us and are the foundations of our inclusive culture. We like to work with thoughtful people who are passionate about what they do and enjoy using their skills to solve real-world problems. We don't expect the people who join us to be experts or have existing knowledge of our industry; we care more about curiosity, attitude and mindset.
Our friendly and diverse people have joined us from the likes of Apple, Facebook, Google, Yandex and tech startups. We're a small business, so everyone has the opportunity to own their work from day one, whilst being surrounded by people who are happy to help.
We analyse large amounts of data in a way that's impossible for humans and look to bring automation to everything we do. As a Trading Operations Engineer, you'll help make this possible.
You'll have real impact in this role, helping to deploy, support and maintain our infrastructure by partnering with teams across Quadrature. The QuadOps team was formed at the beginning of the year, and you'll be working with our Head of QuadOps to ensure our platforms are operationally efficient, as well as collaborating throughout the business to enable improvement and automation.
As this is a new role and we're still in the process of building out the team, you can expect your remit and projects to evolve over time. That said, to give you an idea of what you'll be working on, the scope of the role will include:
Working on automation of the work needed for all kinds of trading operations tasks, such as monitoring, deployment, high availability and resiliency.
Collaborating with multiple teams and functions (internal as well as external) to facilitate our response to changes and incidents as needed.
Providing first-line support for our trading infrastructure projects which will involve close collaboration with the Quant Developer team.
You will be working together with many other teams across the business in this role, so communication skills are important. We work with Python and Linux on a day-to-day basis, so these are also good skills to have, and an interest in automation is great too! If you are inquisitive, with a keen eye for detail, and like the sound of a dynamic role with wide exposure to teams and operations, we'd love to hear from you!
We're fortunate enough to have a fantastic office in the Cheesegrater building with excellent views of London. We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, much of which is focused around wellbeing, health and learning. Our large breakout area is full of food, drinks and games - it's also where we host monthly all hands meetings, events and many of our socials. Professional development is very important to us and we work hard to support people's progress. You will have access to a vast range of development opportunities such as funded training, workshops, reading groups, postgrad study, coaching and as many free books as you'd like.
There's so much that we want to build and we've only just begun. If you like the sound of us we'd love to hear from you! You can submit your application below and one of our team will respond to you within a few days.
