Job Purpose
The Electronification Program is a key strategic priority for the Markets business. The capital markets industry is undergoing an electronification transformation, and Citi Markets has many innovative business initiatives on this new front, across all asset classes.
The objective of the Electronification Program is to define the overall Markets strategy and to promote and facilitate the implementation of the electronification efforts, which will allow sales and traders to increase speed, accuracy and business intelligence, increase volumes and profitability, and to better serve our clients. The program encompasses all asset classes and the entire trade life cycle at the front office, from client communication to trade booking, using innovative technology solutions on dealerboard, trading data, markets analytics, client interaction tools, pricing, and eTrading.

The role requires project management and analytical skills, entrepreneurism and innovative mindset, solid communication and presentation skills, and interpersonal skills for frequent interaction with technology, sales and trading staff.

The Electronification program has strong senior management support and presents a large opportunity for growth. The successful candidate will be able to not only have significant impact, helping implement new technology tools that will improve the interaction between clients, sales and trading staff, but also to develop an in-depth knowledge of front office and technology of each business, get significant exposure to senior executives, and to build a strong network across all Markets businesses.
