Senior Analyst - Quantitative Financial Solutions


Sydney, NSW, AU

Department:  Assurance and Advisory

Sitting under Deloitte’s Treasury and Capital Market’s team, QFS helps businesses and financial institutions navigate complex issues using an algorithmic quantitative approach. No two days are the same in our team as you might work on challenges related to mining and reconciliation on one day and design ad hoc tools for clients on another.

About the role 
We have an exciting opportunity for a talented tool developer with 2-5 years’ experience to join our QFS team in Sydney or Melbourne. In this role, we will leverage your knowledge and technical skills to understand client needs, design and develop ad hoc tools to provide better solutions to the client. 


What will your typical day look like? 

•    Design and develop complex and user-friendly models and tools independently
•    Collaborate with the team to overcome challenges and meet our commitments to the client
•    Manage stakeholder’s expectation, including communicating with and reporting to internal and external stakeholders
•    Research and benchmark between options for an optimal solution

This is an excellent opportunity to join a collaborative and agile team of intellectually inquisitive and quantitatively analytical professionals. You will be mentored by senior staff members who are directly invested in your development and offer fast-tracked career for high performers – promotion is based on performance not on years of service. 


Enough about us, let’s talk about you.
You are an intellectually curious professional with experience in solution architecture design, automation, user developed application or simply love problem solving using algorithms. Any experience in financial services or risk consulting may be useful but isn’t essential. Your strong technical skills with solution design and development coupled with your investigative techniques, analytical and problem-solving mindset and holistic view will set you up for success in this role. In addition, you will require:

•    Bachelor or higher degree in Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, Engineering/IT, Data Science, Business Analytics or a related field.
•    Demonstrate knowledge of specific industry or subject matter.
•    Strong quantitative programming skills, including the capability to design and develop sophisticated tools for, such as, data extraction and visualisation, machine learning / optimisation, predicative modelling.  
•    Sound knowledge and experience of two or three programming languages include but not limited to C#, R, Python, MATLAB, SAS, SQL, JavaScript, PHP and VBA.
•    Sound knowledge and experience of one business intelligence software include but not limited to Power BI, Tableau, QlikView or equivalent.
•    General knowledge of business processes, systems, operations and cycle controls and implications on the client and advisory process
