MAVEN HPC & DATA PLATFORMS TEAM

The HPC & Data Platforms Team is responsible for the delivery of reliable, timely and accurate data and visualisations for the trading and research teams at Maven. Our data pipelines handle terabytes of exchange traffic, performing numerous transformations in real-time covering all the markets traded by Maven. We also provide perform analysis ranging from nanosecond-level investigations on low-latency trading systems to research on trading strategies covering entire markets.

We are a small team who sit on the trading floor in Maven’s London office, and we partner with the trading desks, software development teams and IT operations. Over the next year HPC & Data Platforms Team will be building out the Maven Data Lake. This will become the central repository for data loads and processing pipelines. The Data Lake will allow easy discovery of and access to different data sets, as well as the ability to create and maintain derived data sets as required by our users. Due to the volume and number of data sets we manage at Maven, this is a formidable challenge that will require innovative technical solutions. 

Maven is a proprietary trading organisation formed in 2011. We employ the most talented traders, developers and engineers in the market, executing a diverse range of strategies across global equities and derivatives. We are the most active participant in many of the products we trade, contributing significant liquidity to markets around the world. 

Maven has a culture that is relaxed and informal but highly rewarding of strong performance; there's no dress code, plenty of free food and regular social events.  We have offices in London, Hong Kong and New York and will be opening a new Chicago office in early 2020 as part of our plans to expand our coverage of derivatives markets.
