The teams invest across a diverse range of strategies and asset classes with highly specialized approaches, with long only and alternative strategies run on a discretionary and quantitative basis in single and multi-manager formats. Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and we engage in close dialogue with our investors as strategic partners, to understand their particular needs and constraints. Man Group's investment teams are empowered and supported by our institutional infrastructure and technology, which aims to facilitate the efficient exposure to markets and effective collaboration across the organization.

About Man Numeric
Man Numeric employs systematic security-selection processes that are underpinned by a bottom-up, fundamental approach, offering both long only and alternative strategies. The team's highly experienced professionals operate collaboratively, distilling their analytical and investment expertise into systematic processes which are applied across regions, styles, and capitalizations.
Man Numeric has a strong history in public equities, focusing on bottom-up stock selection processes based on fundamental, causal market relationships and reinforced by continuous research. Its approach seeks to capitalize on temporary market inefficiencies, with models that look to identify mispricing opportunities. Furthermore, the engine seeks to innovate continually and research new areas and opportunities. Man Numeric has significant capabilities in systematic responsible investing, with around half of its assets managed employing some form of sustainability screen.
Founded in 1989 and becoming part of Man Group in 2014, Man Numeric's funds under management were $34.7bn at 30 September 2018. Further information can be found at www.man.com/numeric.
As an Execution Developer at Man you will be building the tools, platforms and algorithms that enable Man's investment engines - AHL, Numeric and GLG - to drive forward their centralised global trading operation. This includes internal algorithmic execution in Futures and FX, systematic routing of Global Equity as well as enabling access to liquidity in almost every other asset class.
Your challenges will be varied and might involve building new execution algorithms, the platforms on which they run, simulation environments, intelligent order routing, connectivity to execution venues and brokers, tools for manual traders, monitoring capability, post-trade performance analysis and software to optimise all aspects of the trading lifecycle.
We are continually expanding the markets, asset classes and regions in which we trade as well as the styles in which we trade them. The team is responsible for designing imaginative and flexible tools to keep pace with this change.
We are looking to hire talented software engineers across the experience spectrum, and previous experience with almost any asset class will be an advantage.
The team is currently undergoing significant investment in order to rationalise the trading capability across AHL, Numeric and GLG. The engineering team works exceptionally closely with both the Trading Desk and the Execution Research team in order to design, build and maintain a world-class trading capability. We have trading floors in London, Hong Kong, Boston and New York and are responsible for trading in excess of 5 trillion dollars annually.
Our systems are almost all running on Linux and most of our code is in Java, with some Python and TypeScript.
We use Bitbucket for source control, Jenkins for continuous integration, Grafana + Prometheus for metrics collection, Docker for containerisation, OpenStack for our private cloud, Ansible for architecture automation, and HipChat for internal communication. But our technology list is never static, we constantly evaluate new tools and libraries.
