IT Systems Manager/Engineer - (Trading House) 50-65K+ Strong Bonus and TC

Sector: Finance/Trading

Location: London City

A boutique financial trading house is looking to hire a highly autonomous IT systems engineer/manager to take ownership over maintaining and developing the organisations IT infrastructure and associated trading systems (Financial experience is not important, Technology is the key driver). This is a highly hands on technical role and the sole point of contact for IT within the company so will require someone who enjoys having the responsibility and being the subject matter expert for IT design, roadmaps and support. Key focuses are: Networking, Virtualisation, Datacentre, Windows Platform and associated System Hardware.

This is a rare opportunity for an Infrastructure Engineer/Lead who is genuinely passionate about IT and technology to join a forward thinking organisation where they are keen for this person to not only maintain their systems but also drive the technology forward to optimise and improve performance long term so there will be a number of side projects and technology research opportunities. Therefore, this role will suit someone with a broad infrastructure skill set, particularly focusing around the following technologies:

  • Networking - Cisco, R&S, Firewalls and Voice (CCNP etc ideal)
  • Virtualisation - VMware, heavily virtualised environment (VCP etc ideal)
  • Windows - Server and Microsoft Packages (MCSE/MCP etc ideal)
  • Hardware - HP, Blades and Datacentre LD4 setup
  • Storage - SAN

This is not the kind of role where someone will pick up the phone to vendors to get solutions, they will have the opportunity to work out and deliver these solutions themselves for the Trading House. Financial experience is not really important for this role, it is more about attitude to technology, new ideas and the ability to deliver it.
