Want to work at the forefront of a fast-growing and award winning FinTech company? With an incredible team and partners looking for innovative results, we’re rapidly growing and continue to add new asset classes to our offerings. We are on the lookout for smart and collaborative talent to join our team. As a cloud-based company, we are currently operating in a flexible and hybrid work model.  

Job Description


We’re looking for a Data Analyst to own, develop and evangelize data-driven thinking and analysis across the organization.  You will sit in the data team and be the primary point-of-contact for all analytical needs at SIMON.  Ideal candidates will not only analyze data and respond to client requests but will most importantly turn insights into action.  As a result, candidates should be able to understand complex business problems, scope projects, identify operational bottlenecks, optimize workflows, and communicate their findings across all levels of the organization.

 

How You Will Fulfill Your Potential

  • Develop dashboards for various business teams, charting key metrics and extracting data-driven insights
  • Write ad hoc scripts in Python and SQL which extract, transform, validate, and aggregate data
  • Serve as the primary point-of-contact for all business teams (including answering technical questions, serving client requests, troubleshooting suspect data, and spearheading new analyses)
  • Grow data insights into concrete execution plans by scoping requirements, feasibility, cost-benefit, governance, dependencies, telemetry, and adoption
  • Evangelize best practices, data-oriented thinking, knowledge sharing, and workflow optimization
  • Construct data-driven experiments, evaluate statistical models, and regularly present your findings to department heads

 

What We're Looking For

  • Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Economics, Business, Mathematics, Statistics or a related technical field
  • 2 or more years of experience in an analytical role on cross-functional teams, with a preference for consulting, finance or early-stage companies
  • Excellent writing, communication and presentation skills
  • Expert knowledge of SQL
  • Very good knowledge of Python
  • Good knowledge of a business intelligence tool (e.g. Tableau, Looker, PowerBI, QuickSight), Microsoft Excel, and basic statistics
  • Good knowledge of finance and business (e.g. capital markets, financial securities, derivative instruments)
  • Exceptional ability to understand client needs, scope projects, develop detail-oriented execution plans, and communicate results
  • An entrepreneurial hunger to own problems from start-to-finish, manage projects, overcome operational bottlenecks, and execute effectively

 

Preferred Qualifications

  • Application, database or systems programming knowledge (e.g. OOP, AWS, data modeling, networking concepts, bash)
  • Machine learning experience or interest

We offer a competitive salary and benefits, the chance to work with a curated team of top-notch, highly creative talent, and a fun and agile work environment with many perks in New York City’s Hudson Yards district, but are operating remotely through at least summer 2021.

An Insider's view of SIMON

What are some social events your company does?

SIMON offers many opportunities to hang out outside of work. Events range from spontaneous happy hours at the end of the day to team dinners to all-company parties (remote participants are welcome too!). Just in the last few months we’ve hosted a salsa dancing class (my personal favorite!), had a pumpkin carving party, and gone to a Mets’ game!

Andrew

Quantitative Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

From working with UX designers to backend engineers, we strive to roll up our sleeves so each member in a team can provide input, brainstorm unique ideas, and find solutions to project problems.

Sadiana

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

SIMON is a lean and rapidly-growing company. This enables employees at all levels to have a high impact. The nature of the organization, coupled with its supportive team members, incredible mentors, and great internal tooling, has dramatically accelerated my technical and professional growth.

John

Client Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is essential–it helps us find innovative ways to leverage new technologies to meet our clients’ needs. I’m always available to act as sounding board for ideas and feedback, encourage cross-team collaboration, empower decision making creating a culture where we learn from mistakes rather than be discouraged, and set the right example.

Pranav

Head of Backend Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

As SIMON prepares for the next level of growth, I am leading our backend engineering team to uplift our annuity services which will reduce our technological debt and allow us to expedite implementation of new features and better serve the business. This will have tremendous impact in our platform’s future and has been rewarding yet challenging!

Senior Backend Engineer
