Technology

Technology

Front and centre of our business

Our technology teams are responsible for developing and supporting the infrastructure at the core of our investment strategies. Working collaboratively with teams from across the business, we are tasked with solving a wide range of technically complex challenges. We offer a stimulating and varied working environment, where both cross-team and cross-functional interaction is essential for delivering on Winton’s objectives.

Emphasis on dynamism

Stacking up

We develop applications and tooling that facilitate data ingestion, quant processing, execution, post-trade activities, and everything in-between.

Operating in a hybrid-cloud environment, we continually appraise and integrate the latest technologies to ensure we can scale both proprietary and open-source applications to meet business demands.

Continued personal development

Ahead of the curve

Our in-person working environment maximises the opportunities for learning through continual interaction with our stakeholders. Development teams operate across the stack and work closely with business users, facilitating the growth of strong, long-term relationships throughout the firm and removing the need for product managers.

We share our latest insights and projects over pizza at regular Tech Talks; we encourage the attendance of conferences to keep us up to speed with the latest tech developments; and we sponsor those looking to upskill through training and courses.
