** Informal Job Posting **

My FE group at State Street Bank is looking for a tech writer. We'd like someone with a technical background, but not a full-fledged quant since this is primarily a technical documentation role, not a quant role. Responsibilities include:

  1. Documenting old models that weren't documented properly.
  2. Documenting new models and model enhancements.
  3. Collecting information and creating documents for regulatory functions and model audits.

You'd be working with a team of quants that make models for a fintech product and working shoulder-to-shoulder with a senior quant. Our team's office is near Rockefeller Center near most of the Manhattan trains, except for the ACE and 456.

Comp would be 90k to 110k, depending on qualifications and work experience.

We're looking for someone with a technical background but not necessarily in quantitative finance, e.g. bachelors in math, engineering, or one of the sciences. No knowledge of finance or financial engineering is required, however, it is expected that you'd pick it up eventually through osmosis since you'd be working closely with the rest of the team.  There are opportunities to take various FE classes as well as company education benefits.

The candidate should have impeccable written and spoken English skills.

There's plenty of "work from home" opportunity, but we do require the documentation specialist to be local to NYC and in the office when required.  No remote workers.  Sorry.

Off the record (stuff you'd never see in a job posting). Our team is expanding and we're doing quite well at the bank, so there's job security.  Work-life balance in our group is stratospheric, to put it mildly.  It's a great place to work if you have good work ethic and also have kids. Our managers are awesome.

Anyone interested in this role should PM me with a LinkedIn profile URL. If there's interest from both sides, I'll forward the official job posting.

This is an informal posting.  I'm a quant, not a headhunter.  Our group needs a documentation guy sooner rather than later, and I'm trying to help the process speed along.
