As an Execution Developer at Man you will be building the tools, platforms and algorithms that enable Man’s investment engines – AHL, Numeric and GLG – to drive forward their centralised global trading operation
Your challenges will be varied and might involve building new execution algorithms, the platforms on which they run, simulation environments, intelligent order routing, connectivity to execution venues and brokers, tools for manual traders, monitoring capability, post-trade performance analysis and software to optimise all aspects of the trading lifecycle.
We are continually expanding the markets, asset classes and regions in which we trade as well as the styles in which we trade them. The team is responsible for designing imaginative and flexible tools to keep pace with this change.
We are looking to hire talented software engineers across the experience spectrum, and previous experience with almost any asset class will be an advantage.
The team is currently undergoing significant investment in order to rationalise the trading capability across AHL, Numeric and GLG. The engineering team works exceptionally closely with both the Trading Desk and the Execution Research team in order to design, build and maintain a world-class trading capability. We have trading floors in London, Hong Kong, Boston and New York and are responsible for trading in excess of 5 trillion dollars annually.
Our systems are almost all running on Linux and most of our code is in Java, with some Python and TypeScript.
We use Kafka as the backbone of our platform, Git for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, Docker for containerisation, Ansible for architecture automation, and Slack for internal communication. But our technology list is never static, we constantly evaluate new tools and libraries.

You will be an expert software developer and ideally have an understanding of the financial markets with relevant electronic trading experience in at least one of the asset classes that we trade.
