Job Description

BASIC FUNCTION:
The Centralized Modeling Group is developing an industry-leading, next-generation framework of models and broader quantitative solutions in partnership with all lines of business and corporate functions at M&T Bank.
The successful candidate will support these wide-ranging initiatives through the creative yet rigorous use of quantitative methods, advanced data science and computational techniques and business acumen, all in close collaboration with members of a seventy-strong modeling team.
POSITION RESPONSIBILITIES:
Support all aspects of the model lifecycle – design, development, documentation, testing, implementation, execution - by addressing business goals in a logical, practical, and efficient manner that balances analytical rigor and pragmatism.
Manipulate, analyze, and interpret large, complex, and often incomplete datasets – internal to the Bank and from a variety of industry and academic sources.
Understand and adhere to model development best practices and guidelines - general, industry, and internal - as well as contribute to the enhancement of such guidelines as appropriate.
Collaborate with colleagues on all efforts to grow the team’s shared repository of models, foundational components, tools, documents, processes, and other intellectual assets.
Engage with a variety of partners within the firm to develop subject matter expertise, thoroughly understand stakeholders’ needs, deliver appropriate solutions, and communicate results - as well their strengths and limitations - to both technical and non-technical audiences.
NATURE AND SCOPE:
This role is highly technical in nature and requires demonstrated attention to detail, execution and follow up on multiple initiatives. The ability to identify, analyze, rationalize, and communicate complex business problems and recommend solutions is a key factor of success, as is the ability to balance independent and highly collaborative aspects of the job function.
