Job Description:

Job DescriptionMBS Source is building and operating the first electronic trading marketplace for the $11 trillion mortgage-backed securities market, servicing major Wall Street banks and institutions. This is an opportunity for ambitious and skilled business analysts to create a name for themselves by being a key contributor to building and operating an industry changing platform.You will be a part of the MBS Source Software Development team with the main role of defining new features or feature improvements and translating them into specifications for the programmers.We are not in the business of analyzing bonds so you are not required to learn about bonds; however you need to be open to learn how traders and portfolio managers operate when buying and selling bonds so you can help automate their work processes.You will be interacting directly with all stakeholders: internal users (sales & trade desk, finance, back-office, etc.), with customers as well as vendors and upper management.Your main role is to build features that solve business problems in the most effective and user-friendly way. You are an expert in eliciting specifications even when you have to start from a fuzzy idea.You do quick iterations in the beginning with the customer to make sure you are on the right track and validate your concepts by using wireframes and rapid prototyping.You are playing the ‘investigative journalist' role, by probing every possible scenario to make sure you are covering all edge cases.At the same time, you are discussing the idea with the programmers, to get their perspective on how to best build the feature.You get sign-off from the customer on the prototype, then you produce the specifications for the programmers in the form of Visio diagrams, user stories, etc.You are supervising the process with the programmers, by talking to them on a daily basis to get an understanding of the progress and any potential misunderstandings.You immediately re-validate the specs with the customer if questions arise or some scenarios can be further optimized.This continuous communication between the customer and the programmers allows you to deliver features in a very efficient way.You go beyond the ‘how' when talking to the customer and clearly understand the ‘why?' of the business problem, so you are able to pleasantry surprise the customer with original solutions that can sometimes be far away from the initial idea.In your communication with the programmers, you are able to describe all user actions related to a feature, sometimes to the database level; however, you try not to get too much in the technical dialogue so you can move fast to the next feature.You understand the relationship between the new feature, existing features and the product roadmap and you find a lot of pride in discovering that the features you have designed were widely adopted by customers and integrated into their workflows.You were mastering this art for at least the past 3 years.You thrive in fast-paced environments with cycles that can be down to days.Key candidate capabilities include:- At least 3 years of building features in the way described above (required).- Exceptional communications skills- SQL server experience at the level of writing basic scripts- Entrepreneurial: the ability to sense, select and shape opportunities.- Customer focused: know customer's needs and habits.- Fast Learner.
