  • Track the industry best practices and make cost-efficient recommendations on the model road map and resource allocation, improving overall efficiency.

  • At least 5 years of modeling and/or validation experience in the Financial Service industries
  • Modeling or validation experience with FCRA-regulated data (e.g. credit bureau attributes)

  • Strong communication skills: written, verbal, presentation, and storytelling with data;
  • Experience communicating with regulators.
