Lansing Proprietary is a data-driven investment manager specialising in the agricultural commodities that underpin the global supply of food, such as wheat, soybeans, corn and sugar. We combine a deep and specific understanding of these markets with expertise in state-of-the-art quantitative and statistical techniques, including machine learning.

Reliable and timely data feed the models that inform our multi-million dollar investment decisions on a daily basis, and our software platform robustly automates an increasing part of the collection and analysis of this data, as well as running and managing a suite of quantitative trading strategies.

We are searching for a talented and pragmatic software developer to join us as the third full-time member of our growing team in central London, close to Shoreditch and the City. This is a rare opportunity to work in a startup-like environment that combines the autonomy and breadth of responsibility of a role in a small, agile development team with the market proximity and excitement of a role at a trading desk.
