We are a growing asset management firm with growing offices in NYC looking to expand our local IT team by hiring a senior IT Application Support Engineer.  

The IT Application Support engineer provides investment application support across all areas of the Insight business, primarily supporting:

     b) all associated applications used by the Front Office and other areas of the business (Middle Office, Performance, Client Services, Risk etc) to manage our investment book 

The role is user-facing and its purpose is to ensure that the day-to-day (BAU) IT needs of the business are met. The team deals with a wide variety of support issues and BAU planning activities, supporting a range of applications from 3rd party Front Office systems to bespoke order management and quantitative financial modelling platforms.  The role also encompasses change management and development tasks across a number of the systems we support. Out-of-hours rotation participation and occasional scheduled weekend work is required.

  • Proven track record supporting OMS/bespoke investment applications. 
  • Proven track record of providing support in a fast-paced, user facing role. 
  • Strong experience supporting fixed income products, including OTC Derivatives (rates, credit, TRS, inflation-linked, etc). 
  • Good SQL skills. Ability to debug SQL scripts is required, and any experience with developing Stored Procedures and other SQL objects is strongly preferred. 
  • Experience with CADIS and ControlM is advantageous (training will be given). 
  • Development languages (VBA, Python) are advantageous but again, not essential.
