Principal Data Engineer - Up to $500,000

We're currently working with a leading, tech-driven Asset Management firm, which is looking for a very senior Data Engineer to join the engineering function for a new Data Science & Analytics division they have created.

This group faces off with the Data Scientists in the Front Office and has a direct impact on the bottom line. This technology function prospects new, cutting-edge data sources and integrates them into the current Data Lake, allowing the Data Scientists to create more efficient ML models and better trading decisions.

You'll be joining a small group of data engineers to build a massively distributed data analytics platform, working with a host of modern Big Data tools to push/pull data across the entire firm. This is a senior role, looking for someone who can define the technical direction of the team and also comfortably face off with business stakeholders (Data Scientists and Analysts).

Required Skills
  • Minimum of 8 years of commercial experience in software engineering or data engineering
  • Strong Python and SQL programming skills
  • Experience creating and implementing ETL data pipelines
  • Strong communication skills
  • Exposure to financial services and front-office trading systems is beneficial but not necessary

Salary range
  • $350,000 - $500,000 total compensation (base + bonus)

If this role isn't right for you, but you know of someone who might be interested, we have a market-leading referral scheme in place to thank anyone who refers a friend who is successfully placed! T&Cs apply.
