Company: Endeavor
Location: Beverly Hills
Posted on: May 10, 2022

Job Description:

The current system is not futureproof! It was designed 10 years ago with approaches and techniques of the time. New services have been bolted on in order to trade new products, alternative data pipelines have been attached, trading volume has increased dramatically and demand for predictive analytics and insights has increased tenfold If you have been helicoptered into this scenario before and successfully tackled the re-design and implementation of a large scale Portfolio Management system, please do keep reading and then reach out for a conversation. The company is one of Wall Streets finest funds. Their growth has been phenomenal and their Equity Portfolio Management system has been Frankensteined into purpose year on year. Now, like a lot of the market, following record years they have excess capital theyre ploughing straight into technology with one clear goal level up the ecosystem! Technology budget has never been an issue for this firm to recruit the best engineering minds or provide the best tech and tools. But, this vastly increased level of capital is providing the additional funding needed to move past BAU thinking and bring on senior ICs across the firm placed specifically into areas that need a special situations mindset. I.e. lets hire a seriously impactful IC who has solved these problems before and partner them with the incumbent tech team to help level up the ecosystem. Simple. Now, this is not changing the planks of the boat while its moving, but the systems cant be turned off they manage millions of dollars of shares traded across the globe on a daily basis so someone with an aptitude for re-architecting existing systems into microservices and then tackling the right issues, in the right order, is likely going to get the backing and confidence to lead this. This is a large scale, multi-year, big-budget project. They need a seriously impactful engineer who can also do the hearts and mind piece with the heads of the trading businesses. Someone who has designed and implemented large scale portfolio management systems before and ideally knows the trials and tribulations of how to get this done right. Youll work as a technical lead, architect and engineer. You will not need to manage them but will work with a team of six talented engineers. You must love programming (ivory tower architects will not suit this firm) perhaps youre working in a large IB and want to ditch people management but still get paid at VP/ED/MD level. If youre at another fund, 6-12 month NC is ok for the right person. Your Role: Requirements gathering with Heads of Trading Businesses. Engineering team meetings Understanding current system design and architecture. Roadmap and project planning. Design/architect new systems. Implementation alongside the team. Code reviews. Experience Required / About You: Must have tackled large scale, business-critical systems in the past, wrangling them into this century. Must be a passionate technologist at heart whose tool of choice is Python. Youll work with experts, so you need to know it inside out. Youll be hands-on here. Design/architecture expertise honed in a product focus ecosystem is a real advantage. You have a fundamental understanding of Portfolio Management Systems ideally with experience on systems that have a good level of scale.
