Do you want to directly impact the success of a global trading business?

Maven's Python Quantitative Developer will play a key role in the development of our systematic trading business, deploying scalable and performant tools for research on large data sets and for generation of trading signals. This is a hands-on development role that will be focused on building production-ready applications, not a data science or machine learning research oriented role.

You will work closely with our Portfolio Managers and Researchers to implement advanced statistical techniques and to unify them into a market-leading research platform.

What you'll do at Maven:

  • Implement tools for performing statistical analysis and algorithmic trading
  • Curate a library of generalised techniques and processes for use in later research or trading strategy design
  • Raise the standard of Python engineering performed by End Users (PMs/Researchers) by providing guidance on architecture, sharing expertise and setting coding standards
  • Provide ad-hoc support to resolve production issues and lead investigations to determine what re-architecting is required to prevent recurrence
  • Helping to create scalable, and modular solutions to standardize implementation and use of common methods and functionality

What you'll need to be successful:

  • Excellent Python skills with proven experience in writing, deploying and maintaining python in a production environment as part of software development, including experience with review, testing, check-in, and release processes
  • Fluency in programming fundamentals and mathematical techniques
  • Enthusiasm to rapidly learn new technologies and skills
  • Business communication skills and the ability to present information clearly and concisely
  • Efficient and diligent with a strong attention to detail and quality

We'd love if you also have:

  • Experience working with large data sets
  • Experience working with time series
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes
  • Experience with relevant Python libraries: sciPy, numPy, pyTorch, pandas, pickle, hd5, feather
  • Knowledge of financial markets & securities (e.g. equities, futures, fx, & options)

Why work for us:

  • We have a great engineering environment where technology is key to our success
  • We use the latest technology available and update our technology stack to stay at the forefront of the development world
  • Working in our Sydney office will give you an upside of start-up culture without the associated risks
  • We are growing fast! You will have plenty of opportunity where you will have significant impact
  • We are flexible and care for our employees - you will have a range of flexible working arrangements available, monthly well-being allowance for you and your family and a subsidy when you start to set up your home office
