A Global Hedge Fund with offices around the world are looking for a Director of Databases to join them in their London Office.

This is a hands-on role reporting directly to the CTO with the individual being responsible for global data warehouse, database administration and data pipeline in the business.

The ideal candidate will have experience leading a team of DBAs. You will also have 10 plus years of hands-on DWH and DBA experience managing enterprise "always on" database platforms, primarily MS SQL and MySQL, data warehouses as well as ETL and reporting services.

The role owns the complete database lifecycle from architecture and data modeling to deployment, optimization, monitoring, and management of all data related services.

Successful candidates must have excellent communication skills and the ability to work closely with executives, portfolio managers, traders, analysts, front, middle and back office, finance, compliance, software development, devops and infrastructure teams to achieve desired outcomes.

Knowledge of financial services database offerings, scripting/automation and global teams spread across multiple time zones are all preferred.

This role will migrate on-premise database and reporting services to AWS, update an in-house data warehouse, consolidate multiple ETL process into a single enterprise data pipeline model, automate critical processes and implement operational best practices, data controls and governance frameworks.

Any experience with AWS or Cloud in general would be ideal but the client would also consider someone who is willing to learn these things as part of career growth.

This is an excellent opportunity for the right individual to join a face paced organization who are looking to use some advanced technology over the next year to push the business forward.
