Job Purpose/Key responsibilities:

CQD is driving a process to align all of Citis Quant libraries with a single architecture, known internally as XiNG. This work has a very high profile and is seen as a key part of Citis strategy to comply with regulatory requirements.

CQD is also responsible for Quant Development more generally within MQA and provides advice and a number of tools to the Quant groups at Citi. The role will involve some work supporting and maintaining the Quant environment as well as work more directly related to the XiNG project.

The role will provide exposure to the Quants who develop against the XiNG architecture and to the various groups in IT who embed those analytics in their applications. Sometimes the work will be in CQDs own infrastructure but at other times it will involve working directly on the Quant libraries themselves.
