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.

The Data Analytics team is responsible for time series data collection and analysis at Maven. Each day we collect terabytes of data in real time covering all the options and futures markets traded by Maven. Our analysis ranges from nanosecond-level investigations on low-latency trading systems to research on trading strategies covering entire markets.

In the short time since the team was formed we have directly improved our business’s trading performance and helped to maintain Maven’s competitive edge in options and futures. 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.

Role Specifications

Maven is looking for outstanding Python developers with the engineering, analytical and quant skills to help drive our continuing success to the next level. You will work alongside the best traders and developers, using open-source and in-house tools to build our time series data platform and produce measurable improvements across Maven’s systems and options trading business.

Previous experience in Python, pandas and related tools is a must, as are a fluency in programming fundamentals and mathematical techniques. Experience in financial markets, derivatives or time series data is beneficial but not essential. This is a full-time, permanent role based in London, with a competitive remuneration package comprising a base salary, benefits and bonus.

  • Strong Python skills (numpy, pandas); 
  • Business communication skills & ability to present information clearly and concisely;
