We are looking to expand our team with the addition of a Data Quality Analyst. The Data Quality Analyst will work closely with a small group of engineers on our products. Here at OptionMetrics, we emphasize accountability over micromanagement. We're small, agile, casual (no suits – shoes optional), and passionate about our mission and the projects we create. As a Data Quality & Analytics team member, you will have true ownership over your projects from beginning to end.
Note: This position requires working on-site at our NYC location in a hybrid capacity. Current NYC COVID laws require proof of vaccination upon entry to the workplace. Candidates must be willing to reasonably accommodate both requests to be considered.

    • BSc in Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Mathematics, or other analytical discipline required
    • Hands-on experience working with data quality and/or data analytics using SQL and Python
    • Ability to write and understand advanced SQL (including stored procedures)
    • Hands-on experience with data exploration and data visualization
    • Passion for Data! Data mining and overall love for working with large data sets.
    • Working knowledge of visualization tools such as Tableau
    • Expertise in time-series analysis and anomaly detection in large data sets

What Will Make You Stand Out:

    • Providing a portfolio of clear, intuitive, and insightful visualizations
    • Possessing an understanding of financial market and options data
    • Experience working in financial services or investment banking

What We Offer:

    • A collaborative environment where everyone's input makes a difference
    • Paid time off: Vacation, Personal, Sick days, and Holidays
    • Pre-tax commuter benefits (NJT, MTA, etc.) and 401k plan offered
    • Full medical and dental insurance coverage
    • A bright, open office in Midtown Manhattan near Columbus Circle and steps from Central Park with a great view of Times Square
    • The usual drinks and snacks (and we're still small enough to celebrate everyone's birthday with cake!)
