This is an outstanding opportunity to join one of the largest alternative asset managers in the world. Technology is central to Man's business strategy and we are constantly looking at better ways of doing things. Our culture embraces change, and change is the norm rather than the exception in a constantly evolving organisation and industry. Due to a mixture of natural turnover, team expansion and upcoming projects we are looking for multiple candidates to fill a number of roles at varying levels of seniority, with the opportunity to advance over a relatively short period of time.
We are looking for skilled developers with a genuine passion for technology to work within Investment Management Technology. The group is responsible for the technology solutions implemented across a wide range of business lines, including Investment Risk, Solutions, GPM, Compliance, Sales and Marketing, Funds Treasury, Operations and Risk & Performance Reporting.
All roles will have a balance of BAU and Project work. BAU work will involve maintaining the existing tech stack, 3rd line support and supporting the business with smaller enhancements and fixes. While project work will consist of longer term, more far reaching changes that are a mixture of extending existing systems, incorporating new technologies and building out our strategic technology platform in line with our long-term vision.
These openings have the potential to be high profile roles with extensive interaction with business stakeholders and senior management across the Man Group, so would suit individuals who thrive in those environments.
