Who are we?
We're ALPIMA: a tight-knit and innovative group of engineers, quants and finance professionals on a mission to increase client centricity in investment management. We have built a fast-growing next-generation portfolio construction and analysis platform to help our clients – Banks, Asset Managers, Wealth Managers and other financial firms - build investment strategies with conviction and deliver personalisation at scale. After making waves in the finance world (and having our best year ever!) we're looking to bring on new talent to work on key platform and client projects.
How do we work?
We run fortnightly sprints, with each engineer estimating the time needed for their tasks. Our project managers trust us to estimate things fairly and deliver good technical solutions; we're not micromanaged. We keep a tight feedback loop and demonstrate whenever we've built something new. We value team contributions and encourage every person to challenge the status quo.
