Responsibilities: <strong>Keeping the data on time:</strong> SQL and Scripting are our main tools to make sure the data is correct and the equity is managed the way our customers need. We use Oracle and in addition to SQL skills the ability to administer Oracle is preferred.<br /><br /><strong>Keeping the system and all its components operational:</strong> Shareworks makes Equity Management easy for our clients. That means it's on us to keep it running and bring the creations of our developers to life. It's a complex system and working on it is both interesting and exciting. Software systems knowledge combined with strong debugging skills are required.<br /><br /><strong>Monitoring and measurement:</strong> Knowing how the system is doing over time and how things are trending. We simply have to know what is going on in the system. We use a series of metrics to drive a dedicated process of ongoing improvement. We are not complacent and are always looking for ways to make our system better. Step one is measuring everything. Step two is understanding the story our data is telling us.<br /><br /><strong>Automation and Tooling:</strong> We're not keen on repetitive tasks and seek to apply automation where it makes sense.
