Job Description

Onboard a team of data analysts and data scientists that are aiming to develop, design, and roll-out a dazzling new suite of analytics products. In working as a Senior Quantitative Analyst for 12 months, you will be able to kick start your career in data insights, and embed yourself in a rich financial exchange market.

Our client is a leading Financial Market Utility institution: as a company, they cover 17 different currencies, and focus on transactions that result in one-way payments. This position offers financial stability and the ability to significantly impact and change the way that the business operates.

The Senior Quantitative Analyst will take responsibility for all phases of the analytical, model, and product development process. Coverage area includes identifying data sets using statistical analysis; prototyping models and foreign exchange products; implementing, validating, testing, and documenting the production of the products; building efficiency to ensure products and methodologies can easily be altered to meet specific customer needs; and reviewing the model product in light of new information and feedback.

The most qualified candidate for this position will have a degree in a mathematical/quantitative subject, including a bachelor's, Masters and/or PhD. Experience with statistics, data mining, cluster analysis, and decision trees is also critical, as is previous exposure to quantitative modeling, R, SQL, and model validation.

If you are forthcoming and creative in leveraging data, and appreciate the impact that data can have on business insights and development, please call Michellie McDonald-O'Brien at 646-766-1203 for a confidential consultation.
