We are looking for a well-rounded senior manager with 8-12 years of investment analytics data management. The ideal candidate should have at least 7 years overseeing Fixed Income analytics and risk management systems.
The role will be responsible for a global team of 5-10 individuals supporting on-going data integrity, risk technology and market data vendor management.

This includes: supporting the full data acquisition and scrubbing process, developing/integrating with our quality control program, tuning/enhancing the existing batch stream, and developing business logic enhancements to the existing analytics data.

The candidate will be required to develop an understanding of the FIT technical architecture including the database and application design, and the impact of design decisions on application performance, maintainability and data quality. The role requires managing multiple projects within the fixed income risk program, strategic initiatives and tactical enhancements.
