Company Overview

Insight Investment Management Limited (‘Insight’) is a leading global asset manager with over £550bn in AUM. Launched in 2002, we have won industry recognition for our investment capabilities across liability driven investment, fixed income, specialist equities, multi asset and absolute return. In technology, we seek to emulate the fin-tech industry’s finest in developing next-generation solutions for our investment capabilities.
Innovation drives the development of our investment capabilities. We nurture a collaborative culture: it encourages long-term thinking, rewards both individual excellence and team players, and reminds us to put our clients first. The key to our success are our people and the partnerships we build with clients.

Division Description

The Technology Transformation team are driving the adoption of new cloud technologies and modern full stack development practises at Insight Investment.
We are making full use of Azure cloud capabilities together with a modern Microsoft Tech Stack (C#, .NET Core 2.x, REST, Containers) to transform our application estate into a service-based architecture hosted in the cloud. We are embracing DevOps practises such as Infrastructure as Code together with tools such as Terraform and Chef. We are building continuous delivery pipelines to build, test and deploy our applications and infrastructure into Azure securely, reliably and repeatably. We are currently exploring how to implement agile practises at scale.
You will join a full stack development team with a mission to migrate and build out our service-based application architecture in Azure.
If you know how to shift left, and are as comfortable consuming Azure PAAS services as you are breaking down a monolith into microservices in C# / ASP.NET Core, and can’t wait to start using AKS in Azure, then we want to hear from you.
