Position Description:

The development of a model also involves working on the messaging standards and how the messages are persisted. In addition to this, the role also encompasses the development of strict rules-based data contracts derived from multiple stakeholder requirements, root cause analysis of the violations of those rules, and tenacious co-ordination with the system owners and developers of the violating systems to rectify problems.

• Specification/requirements gathering
• Excellent technical writing and verbal communication skills to document and explain models to and between multiple stakeholders
• Influencing and relationship building across global teams
• Able to influence external teams to conform to, or enhance, the model, and determine appropriate solutions
• Logical data modelling using ER diagramming
• Coordination/Project Management skills

Nice to Have:
• Experience with the FIX messaging protocol
• Database development/administration/reporting experience (preferrably DB2 or Sybase)
• Command line Linux/Unix scripting experience in Perl

• Good understanding of XML
