While the role is not client-facing, our business analysts are asked to follow regulatory news that affects our customers and to propose updates to the application.

This position also provides an excellent opportunity to gain an understanding of finance, operations, risk, and regulation.

Responsibilities: 

  • Collect, organize, and analyze regulatory information

  • Follow established procedures to convert regulatory information into logical pieces required for integration to our application

  • Evaluate data collected through task analysis, review of business and legal documentation, and review of business processes

  • Document the results of all analysis, and transform this information into tech-consumable form using internal and external tools

  • Demonstrate a proactive approach by proposing creative solutions to enhance software 

  • Partner with Development, QA, Best Practices, and Data & Analytics teams to ensure new features meet requirements  

  • Partner with QA team to design test cases and to complete internal UAT  

  • Partner with technical writer to create documentation related to new features and calculations


The ideal candidate will have: 

  • 0-3 years of professional experience

  • Strong Excel skills

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Rigorous insistence on detail, analytical thinking, and problem-solving

  • Ability to gather and interpret relevant data and information

  • Facility with complicated documentation (legal experience a plus)

  • Ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment and to juggle several projects at the same time 

  • Capability to own a task and ability to find solutions through collaboration

  • Knowledge of financial products and markets

  • Familiarity with financial regulations is a plus

  • Knowledge of SQL is a plus

  • Bachelor’s degree in Business, Finance, Information Systems, or related
