  • Working with data validation members and information technology professionals to assess integrity of data behind the model.

  • Making recommendations and suggesting improvements related to the applicability of the different models assessed in meeting their objectives.

  • Master in Statistics, Data Science, Finance, Economics, Mathematics, and/or other quantitative discipline. Exceptional candidates with a Bachelor's degree and 3+ years of relevant work experience might also be considered.
  • Work experience in a Financial Services Firm preferred. Model Validation experience a plus.

  • Strong communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Good project management skills, with the ability to work independently on multiple tasks and/or projects.
  • Knowledge of financial markets and products, familiarity with structured asset classes a plus.
  • The candidate must be able to take initiative and meet deadlines.
