Project Description


Our client is a leading global Financial Markets data provider that runs a number of change programs to deliver high-quality software that connects Financial Markets across the globe in real-time, high frequency, and low-latency data management chain.

The main objective is to refactor the current fragmented system estate into a modern, scalable Index Platform to drive through significant scale up of the LSEG Index business through quicker time to market and self-service/direct indexing solutions, as well as harness strong data and distribution capabilities from the wider organisation making FTSE Russell index data more easily and widely available to the market.

The role is a Business, Data and Technical Analysis focused role supporting the Index Data Platform Services work stream within LSEG Technology working within an Agile Delivery framework.
