The ideal python CTO will be highly proficient at writing robust Python software for web applications in a fast changing environment with rapid release cycles but also have the ability to lead a small team of seriously bright developers. You’ll be working within a team of highly skilled python developers and quants that love to build amazing things. I am looking for someone who is passionate about mathematics and python data science as well as building a business.

You will be a python quant technologist or mathematician motivated by what’s new to ensure you’re always ahead of the curve. You will understand the need and importance for zero downtime, secure and reliable backups and building maintainable one click solutions.

    • Dimensionality Reduction
    • Projection into an information sphere
  • Designing and implementing a mechanism to make and track changes through time on the complex system

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.
My client is based in Oxford but are happy for people to only work a day a week from the office (travel to and from paid for)
