Analytic Solution Analyst (contract to hire):

Modelshop is looking for an Analytic Solution Analyst with experience in Financial Services in Northern New Jersey or NYC.   The role is initially a full-time contract position.  The right candidate has the potential to become one of the first ten employees of this exciting new analytic application startup and will be able to significantly influence the success of the company.
