Technical Operations Analyst

Information Technology London, United Kingdom


Approximately four years ago one our core development team were finding it increasingly difficult to create viable applications. We had to take a step back and create the Technical Operations team to focus on process improvements and disciplines.


In the beginning, we were responding to the developer’s needs, we still focus on the day-to-day improvements to the core parts of the platform, however a lot of our attention is towards what the platform needs in order to develop a highly scalable and sustainable infrastructure. Technical Operations are an integral part of G-Research.


We focus on technical business processes rather than infrastructure management. We understand all the different aspects of the G-Research platform and consistently research the release process, making short term and long term process improvements.


What will you do?


  • Gain end to end knowledge of the G-Research infrastructure.
  • Consistently research the release process, making process improvements.
  • Create ideas around using new technologies to improve the infrastructure.
  • Refine new operational and investment platform features.
  • Become a platform expert, offering cross-platform consultancy to all other teams.
  • Help us move into "Infrastructure as code" taking on more platform ownership, accessing more IP data and code we don't currently use, in order to make more substantial platform improvements.


You will have:


  • Experience in a technical role with an understanding of software deployment and systems architecture. Our current infrastructure is mainly .NET, Linux and Windows. However, experience with these technologies is not essential.
  • Confidence to learn a brand-new platform from an operational perspective and translate observations into low-level technical diagnoses.
  • Acuity to maintain constant awareness of technical developments across multiple domains and continuously assess their likely production impact in both isolation and tandem.
  • Interest in financial markets and financial market theory.


The current team has been sourced from a mixture of backgrounds including application support, development and infrastructure. As well as technical skills, the team's success has been built upon adaptability, resourcefulness and the desire to deliver the best platform possible. If you believe you have the ability to contribute in the same way then we look forward to receiving your application.
