A leading global investment management firm, data is the core of the investment process. Data Engineers architect and build our data platforms which drive how we source, enrich, and store data that integrates into the investment process.

- Build tools and automation capabilities for data pipelines that improve the efficiency, quality and resiliency of our data platform
- Drive our evolution of our data strategy by challenging the status quo and identifying opportunities to enhance our platform
