Project Manager Fintech

Quant Capital is urgently looking for a Project Manager to join our high profile Fintech client in central London.

  • Experience working with formal project methodologies (e.g. APM PRINCE 2, PMI/BOK) and associated
  • Degree, preferably in a Technical / or Business related area

I am looking for full blown project managers who have experience in a small Vendor and who want to take on real responsibility.


The environment is that of Facebook or Google, relaxed open with time to think and make the right decisions. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed with an open dress code. This is a role for techies, those who are motivated by the sharp end of technology and the possibility of making serious money doing something you are passionate about.
