We’re investing in this business and building out a multi-obligation reporting and assurance services business on top of our award winning MiFIR regulatory reporting hub and complementing our regulated entities (ARM & APA). We’re looking for a reporting operations specialist with a passion for delivering innovative client solutions.

The tools and reports that you define and create in partnership with engineering and product teams will be leveraged to monitor the day to day operations of our services, understand the health of both internal and client workflows, identify possible operational or regulatory breaches before clients or regulators identify them in their own data.
