Job Description

Are you curious, motivated, and forward-thinking? At FIS you'll have the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging and relevant issues in financial services and technology. Our talented people empower us, and we believe in being part of a team that is open, collaborative, entrepreneurial, passionate and above all fun.

About the team

Ambit Optimist is a comprehensive credit risk management solution, delivering benefits for both credit and risk officers, as well as for front line relationship managers. Ambit Optimist provides commercial bankers with vital financial analysis, business modeling capabilities, and communication tools to build, manage, and sustain a profitable commercial loan portfolio.

As a member of the Professional Services team, this position plays a key role in the success of customer implementations of the Optimist product. Optimist is a risk and compliance tool that commercial banks use to spread financials and generate risk grades when evaluating whether to lend to borrowers. The Technical Consultant is responsible for interface and data migration activities. The Technical Consultant will work with customers to elicit, analyze, communicate and document data mappings required for interfaces and data migration. After specifications are complete, the Technical Consultant is responsible for building and implementing the interface and data migration solutions.

What you will be doing

* Analyze technical needs, document data mappings for interfaces and data migration.
* Assist with interface technical design documentation.
* Guide the customer in implementation best practices and manage customer expectations to ensure their success in the project.
* Build real time and batch integrations using file import/export, web services and other approaches
* Build and deliver high performance data migration tools that import data from legacy systems into Optimist in preparation for "day 1 use".
* Conduct a variety of tests such as system, quality and peer reviews. Ensure that development is correct per the agreed upon documentation. Verify through testing that changes made to one part of the application do not impact other parts. Report and review testing results.
* Manage software and configuration deployment between FIS and client, including automation scripts etc.
* Isolate and resolve complex issues using appropriate tools.
* Liaise with other internal groups such as development staff and support teams.
* Achieve utilization targets.


* Open communication and transparency: We are an organization in which we value the ability to communicate and share information in a transparent way in order to be able to fuel meaningful conversations and be efficient at addressing the real issue and finding the best path forward.
* Ability to lead and take actions: Given a situation or task, we expect you are fully engaged and take the opportunity to demonstrate our ability to own a topic, bring the right people together, take actions and, in summary, take the lead in bringing this topic to wherever it should be.
* Anticipation and Proactivity: Our job is not to be firemen fighting one incident before the next. Our job is to create the conditions for our own success and that requires an ability to anticipate and be proactive, creating the context where the best can happen (ex: effectively managing risks and client expectations) rather than waiting or expecting the worst.
* Creativity and Pragmatism: In combination with the previous, creativity is the competency that summarizes for us the need to keep an open mind and think about multiple solutions when facing challenges. Demonstrating pragmatism in this context is having the ability to balance these solutions with an ability to integrate the "how will they be implemented" into their evaluation
* Sense of initiative and ability to deliver: We accept mistakes, they are part of the learning curve and a demonstration that you tried something. On the other hand, we cannot accept inaction and the lack of initiative. Finally, as not every initiative can fail and because our business is ultimately to deliver solutions to the client, ability to turn actions and initiatives into actual results is key.

What you bring:

* End-to-end software implementation experience (preferably at a software vendor).
* Understands the full IT project life cycle from requirements gathering through implementation and go live.
