  Modelshop – Analytic Solution Analyst - Northern NJ - 09 Apr 2017  

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.

An Analytic Solution Analyst is responsible for transforming customer financial services requirements into real-time analytic applications using the Modelshop platform.  Modelshop leverages a powerful ontology modeling engine, the Groovy scripting language as well as R and Python to deliver mission critical financial applications powered by analytics and data.  Examples include lending origination engines, pricing optimization models, robo-advisors and fraud mitigation applications.

The right candidate will be self-directed, creative, technical and focused on delivering great customer solutions.   If you have a strong interest in data and analytics, are comfortable in sophisticated spreadsheets and tools such as R or Python but are also very interested in the business side of creating new FinTech solutions, this could be a great role for you.   Hard-core quant skills are not required, but many of them can be learned along the way.

Modelshop is a platform that empowers financial institutions to create custom analytic applications an order of magnitude faster than through software development or by using traditional analytic technology. Many of Modelshop’s customers are early-stage companies working to innovate in financial services.  The power of the platform allows both small and large organizations to deploy new analytic solutions more quickly and with more sophisticated decision logic than traditional technologies.

Modelshop is a seed funded start-up with a focused and collaborative team environment.   This role is initially a contract position, but there is a strong opportunity for the right person to move to an employee role.  Modelshop’s compensation approach is to be competitive on base salary and benefits, and to leverage on equity to deliver upside potential for the best talent.
