Data and Systems Analyst

This Position is no longer available

We seek several experienced IT Systems Analysts with technical skills (i.e. SQL, some programming/coding/scripting background)  to work on implementation of a Commodities Trading and Risk management System (CTRM) and integration with the client's other IT systems.   Due to the company's growth, and the need to get started quickly,  these positions will be contract-to-hire.  

This hands-on IT Systems Analyst position will partner with the business to provide a major technology platform transformation, where legacy technology and business processes are undergoing a complete and strategic overhaul.

This position is similar to a “database developer” position or “programmer analyst” position, in that the Analyst will meet with the business to understand the business needs, and then go and work hands-on with the new system, the vendor and the internal IT team to create the new functionality, reporting, or other desired result.     As the Analyst will gain in-depth knowledge of the business, business processes, and the new system, there will be significant ongoing application support and continued enhancements for the new system.

The Systems Analyst analyze business requirements and then participate hands-on with development, system and process enhancements, and process changes that impact multiple areas (Accounting, Trading, Risk, Technology, and Operations)

If you enjoy working with a small, focused team and delivering solutions for the business, this could be a great position for you!

  • Ensure enhancements and proposed solutions meet business requirements
  • Document, implement, and maintain business procedures

  • 3-10  years’ experience as an IT Systems Analyst, Database Developer or Programmer/Analyst
  • Strong Proficiency in SQL and Database (i.e. SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) 
  • Working knowledge with any scripting language required.
  • Advanced knowledge of MS Excel, ie. developing complex spreadsheets and writing VBA code
  • Experience in Financial Services is a bit plus – any exposure to trading and risk management systems and the Commodities industry is a plus
  • Prior experience implementing and integrating enterprise-scale or large-scale SAAS or COTS systems is a plus
  • Strong Analytical, verbal, written, and interpersonal skills required.  
  • Excellent documentation skills.
  • Proficiency in JIRA or comparable software 
This is an on-site position 5 days a week.  The client's office is conveniently located a 5 min. walk from the Stamford, CT Metro-North train station, and offers easy access for commuting and free parking.  Excellent, professional work environment.
