Three New Senior Level Job Opportunities for a Leading Financial Services Firm in Southern CT - Not For the Faint of Heart!

I have been asked to expand my searches for talent for a leading financial services firm in Southern CT. They are growing, and looking for people who are the best of the best.

The latest batch of positions are senior level positions in the back of the house that require technical skills and background. Three particular positions I am focusing on at the moment are:

Data Team Lead

The Trading Department has an opening for a Data Team Lead. The Data Team Lead will be responsible for building a team and developing key competencies in data management for the department. The data group will be responsible for all aspects of the coverage, quality and timeliness of data provided to and generated within the Trading department. This is a key role, instrumental in the planning, prioritization and execution of strategic projects, as well as the day-to-day operations required to manage data for and provide data to the department.

Accounting Technical Lead

The Back Office Technology Team is looking for an experienced technical lead or manager who has experience dealing with the many challenges facing a Back Office Accounting Department. The successful candidate will have been managing or leading a small team of developers for at least 5 years. This person needs to be passionate about technology and have proven experience in transformational efforts. It is also important that the candidate have strong communication skills and a strong sense of values. In the Back Office Tech team, technical leads will be involved in projects ranging in complexity from weeks to months to years. They will be responsible for managing and mentoring a team of developers and ensuring that industry best practices are enforced. The accounting technical lead will also collaborate with other technical leads within Back Office Tech as well as the Development Manager in envisioning and defining the technical architecture for the department. The new architecture will be flexible, extensible, supportable, secure, allow for agile development, and allow for integration with third party applications/packages. The successful candidate will thrive in a dynamic, challenging environment.

Senior Business Analyst

Our business analysts are an integral part of our Development team. They provide a critical link between our business users and the developers. We are looking for bright individuals capable of quick immersion in the specifics of our domain. The individual will need to make a quick impact, help mature our requirements gathering process and take on the longer-term responsibility of testing, all in partnership with the user community. The candidate should have the ability to lead a small team of Business analysts.

The ideal candidate will have experience with requirements management and software development methodology and have worked extensively with business users, programmers, and QA. This individual will have a strong background in business analysis and possess a high level of comfort with technology.
