I strongly recommend BAML is a great place to apply your python skills. I enjoyed working there. 
As weird coincidence just today i was checking exactly the same video, one of the comments  of that video points to the MDF data flow toolkit does anybody have experience with it? 
BAML has something similar that is proprietary as the video explains, I have personally used,  is a very impressive module.

 Subject: [Chicago] Open spots for python devs on my team
Hey Chipy,
I work at Bank of America as a Quartz developer, the bank's platform for managing trades, risk etc. developed in Python. We currently have a couple spots open on my team for developers and we are actively searching to fill those roles soon so I thought I'd reach out to see if anyone in the community is interested. 
Why this is fun...
It's hard to give an accurate view of Quartz in a couple lines but the platform is pretty unique. First, we work in the enterprise, so it's Python at scale and problems of scale. There's about 3,000 python developers spread across the world working on an open-source inspired code base with ~20MM lines of code -- viewable, searchable, editable to any developer on the platform. 
Second, as a large investment bank, we have access to all aspects of development from front-end, back-end, cloud computing, and distributed no-SQL object oriented database (think storing serialized Python, not serialized JSON/BSON), etc. 
You can Google around for some info on Quartz for more information (JPM has a similar system called Athena, and Goldman Sachs, too, called SECDB/SLANG). 
This is also a good video to watch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTOP_shhVBQ

We are looking to hire VERY soon, so please reach out and send a resume to me or my manager, Tara, or ask any questions.
