  • Understanding users requirements and how they translate in application features
  • Perform / support various testing throughout the development cycle
  • Support performance testing and tuning
  • Ensure deadline is met


  • University graduate in Computer Science or related disciplines

  • Competence in managing Data Warehousing and Data Management projects
  • Experience in banking business and operation
  • Exposure in Risk Management will be an added advantage
  • Knowledge in SQL/PLSQL, Unix scripts and Oracle DB (understanding is key, not hands-on ability)
  • Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English is required but Cantonese/Mandarin will be a massive advantage.

This role is extendable or convertible to perm.
