Man Alpha Technology
Front Office technology at Man is known as Alpha Technology. Alpha Technology was formed in 2018, bringing together a number of Investment Manager specific teams into a single business entity. Alpha Technology's purpose is to create a team, environment and technology platform which promotes the highest level of innovation and agility across all of our investment managers, whilst minimizing unnecessary duplication of technology, tools and process. It is structured into the following teams, each with their own CTO or Head of Technology reporting into the Man Alpha Technology CTO, who in turn reports to Man's Chief Investment Officer:
As a Quant Platform Developer in Alpha Tech, you will be building the tools, frameworks, libraries and applications which power our Quantitative Research and Systematic Trading. This includes responsibility for the continued success of Raptor , our in-house Quant Platform, next generation Data Engineering, and evolution of our production Trading System as we continually expand the markets and types of assets we trade, and the styles in which we trade them. Your challenges will be varied and might involve building new high performance data acquisition and processing pipelines, cluster-computing solutions, numerical algorithms, position management systems, visualization and reporting tools, operational user interfaces, continuous build systems and other developer productivity tools.
Our systems are almost all running on Linux and most of our code is in Python, with the full scientific stack: numpy,scipy, pandas, scikit-learn to name a few of the libraries we use extensively. We implement the systems that require the highest data throughput in Java. For storage, we rely heavily on MongoDB and Oracle.
We use Airflow for workflow management, Kafka for data pipelines, Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, ELK for log shipping and monitoring, Docker for containerization, OpenStack for our private cloud, Ansible for architecture automation, and HipChat for internal communication. But our technology list is never static: we constantly evaluate new tools and libraries.
