Your role in the team
Your task will be to run a project generating risk reports important for the entire IG. The tool is currently under consideration for a complete renovation. The main scope of responsibilities is the implementation of new functionalities, adding new reports, writing tests, pipeline analysis and active participation in the team's scrum life. Technologies used: Python, pandas, numpy, Kafka, Airflow, Rest, GCP, JVM technologies (Java, Scala), bash. Candidates do not need to have big data knowledge or a lot of cloud experience - it's important that you are willing to expand your skills!
What you'll do
You will be responsible to ensure a high quality deliverable within Data Engineering Team. You will be:
* Adding new reports
* Writing tests
* Building deployment pipeline
* Analyse and design technical solutions
* Actively participate in the team's scrum life.
Who we're looking for
You're curious about things like the client experience, the rapid developments in tech, and the complex world of fintech regulation. You're also a confident, creative thinker with a knack for innovating. We know that you know every problem has a solution. Here, you can try new ideas, and lead the way in creating inspiring experiences for our clients and everyone around you. We don't fit the corporate stereotype. If you want to work for a traditional, suit-and-tie corporate that just gives you a pay cheque at the end of the month, we might not be for you. But, if you have that IG Group energy and you can stand behind what we believe in, let's raise the bar together.
What you'll need for this role
You will be someone who can demonstrate:
* Deep knowledge in Python
* Knowledge in data processing (pandas/pyspark)
* Good knowledge of SQL
* Understanding development life-cycle (CI/CD, git, conda)
* Unit testing
It would be great if you have experience on:
* Cloud (preferred GCP)
* Apache Kafka
* Apache Spark
* Message formats AVRO/Parquet/ORC/Json
How you'll grow
When you join IG Group, we want you to have more than a job - we want you to have a career. And you can. If you spot an opportunity, we want you to chase it. Stretch yourself, challenge your self-beliefs and go for the things you dream of. With internal and external learning opportunities, and the tools to help you skyrocket to success, we'll support you all the way. And these opportunities truly are endless because we have some bold targets. We plan to expand our global presence, increase revenue growth, and ultimately deliver the world's best trading experience. We'd love to have you along for the ride
It really is more than a job. We'll recognise your talent and make sure that you can still have a life - at work, and outside of it. Networks, committees, awards, sports and social clubs, mentorships, volunteering opportunities, extra time off... the list goes on.
Where you'll work
We follow a hybrid working model; we reckon it's the best of both worlds. This model also feeds into our secret ingredients for innovation: diversity, flexibility, and close connection. Plus, you'll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive workforce with a lot of creative energy. Ask our employees what their favourite thing is about working at IG, and you'll hear an echo of 'our culture'! That's because you can come to work as your authentic self. The things that make you, you - like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, age, gender identity/expression or physical capacity - can bring a fresh perspective or new skill to our business. That's why we welcome people from various walks of life; and anyone who wants to help us realise our vision and strategy. So, if you're keen to connect with our values, and lead the charge on innovation, you know what to do
