Our client is a fintech in the fixed income markets (fixed income primary issuance, securities services, custody, secondary market trading and brokerage) scaling for growth and Excelsior recently placed the CTO to take the companys’ technology infrastructure to the next level. As they continue to strengthen the team the next hire is a Business Analyst to play a lead role in further development of their technology platform.
It's a varied high profile role working with various stakeholders and clients to gather requirements, create business requirement / functional specification documentation, user stories, wireframes and workflow diagrams for product development, assist with QA testing and write user documentation etc. There really is the opportunity to play a key role in creating ‘something special’ with this financial firm set to disrupt the fixed income markets.
Appropriate applicants will have the following skills & experience:
- Experience as a Business Analyst with either a financial institution or technology vendor.
- Although our client would consider a strong business analyst with any financial markets related experience, any particular exposure to fixed income trading, settlement, securities services or custody etc would be advantageous.
- Strong written and verbal communication skills and client interfacing ability.
- The ability to think about technology functionality in conjunction with business, customer and market needs today and into the future.
- A driven and determined attitude conducive to a dynamic high growth business environment where you'll have the opportunity to make a significant impact.
This fintech which will compete with investment banks and trading venues for both fixed income primary issuance and secondary market trading, is re-inventing and disrupting traditional markets and this Business Analyst will play a key role in platform development. A great career opportunity that will offer a lot of variety, responsibility and career growth as the operation grows.
