DATA ANALYST IN FINANCIAL SERVICES, MULTIPLE POSITIONS - CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

DATA ANALYST IN FINANCIAL SERVICES, MULTIPLE POSITIONS - CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

DATA ANALYSTS

The Company

Solovis is a revolutionary new SaaS platform offering a multi-asset class portfolio management and reporting solution for foundations, endowments, pensions, OCIOs, and family offices. Our firm is on a mission to set a new industry standard for performance, exposure, and portfolio analysis. The key to that success is to continue disrupting the industry with transformational technology designed specifically for limited partners. Since our co-founders started the company in 2013, Solovis has grown from a two-man operation to more than 40 employees with offices in Charlottesville, VA and Dallas, TX. And we’re not done growing yet. We expect to add at least 20 more new employees this year. At Solovis, we recognize our employees by personally investing in them and providing a rewarding corporate culture centered around growth, training, and an opportunity to shape the future of our product.

The Position

We’re looking for several Data Analysts to help fill out our team in both our Charlottesville and Dallas locations. Data Analysts make up a critical component of our client implementation team, as Solovis clients need good historical data in order to maximize the power of the Solovis platform.  Our Data Analysts embrace the challenge of analyzing, interpreting, transforming and loading large data-sets. They are responsible for complex data analysis and problem solving, project organization and documentation, and client support and training. Additional duties include:

  • Managing multiple projects, responsibilities and competing priorities.
  • Creating and maintaining comprehensive project documentation.
  • Participating in weekly client meetings.
  • Presenting data findings and working with other members of the Implementation team to identify and implement strategies that will address tactical and strategic client goals.
  • Analyzing and communicating client’s business and reporting requirements.
  • Assisting with client reporting and dashboard creation.

You’ll start by going through a “boot camp” where you’ll learn about our software and the investment industry. Then you’ll spend your days working in spreadsheets; extracting, segmenting, and interpreting financial data. You need to be the kind of person who takes pride in receiving a large mass of messy data and producing a neat, accurate portfolio model in our system.

People who love this job:

  • Love details.
  • Are at ease with numbers.
  • Quickly become familiar with investment reporting including back office / accounting and front office / performance, exposure, liquidity, etc.
  • Are forward-thinking and able to identify gaps in requests and how that may impact future decisions.
  • Enjoy suggesting strategies to meet process improvement and quality objectives and continually introduce innovation to business processes through data analysis.
  • Can apply industry knowledge to data problems.
  • Learn quickly and thrive in a fast-faced environment.
  • Are disciplined and creative enough to follow a checklist without being constrained by it.
  • Are comfortable working on their own or in a group setting.
  • Want a job where they can learn new things every day.
  • Live in or are willing to relocate themselves to Charlottesville, VA or Dallas, TX.

Data Analysts

  • Up to three years of experience.
  • May have had an internship in a related business like an endowment or investment manager.
  • Strong interpersonal skills, be self-motivated, have a strong desire to learn, and be adaptable to a fast paced, ever-changing environment.
  • Strong Excel skills (there will be a test!)

Solovis is an Equal Opportunity Employer and prohibits discrimination and harassment of any kind: Solovis is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity and to providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. All employment decisions at Solovis are based on business needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to national, social or ethnic origin, sex, age, physical, mental or sensory disability, sexual orientation, marital, status, past or present military service, or any other status protected by the laws or regulations in the locations where we operate.

OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINA FOR UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA STUDENTS

OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINA FOR UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA STUDENTS

Gotoco is a small social enterprise committed to promoting cultural exchange between China and the English-speaking world. Social enterprises are businesses committed to helping improve local, national and global communities and reinvest any profits into their social mission. Our aim is to introduce more Western university students to China and its diverse culture. We seek to improve tomorrow’s international relations by allowing the next generation of leaders to engage with one of the most economically, politically and culturally important countries of the 21st century. Our programs are unique because we do not charge anyone to take part. Many programs similar to us impose significant fees on students--we do not do this to ensure as many people as possible can go and explore this fascinating country.

In summers 2016 and 2017, we helped over 500 students from universities across the UK and USA visit China and teach English to Chinese children in summer camps spread around the country. We now want to expand this opportunity to more students at University of Virginia. Through our programs, students can spend a month or two teaching in picturesque and exciting parts of China, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Yangshuo. While inspiring the next generation of Chinese children to learn English, the students would also take part in Mandarin lessons, cultural trips and travelling. We make it our policy not to charge students to go to China so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to take part. Students only need to pay for their flights and visas, then they get accommodation and food provided free of charge at their schools. We also guarantee every volunteer a week’s accommodation in Yangshuo, Guangxi--one of the most beautiful and exciting parts of the country--at the end of their summer camp.

Project Description:

Explore China for free with Gotoco! (www.go-to.co/)

Are you looking for something meaningful to do this summer? Are you interested in traveling and teaching in China? Whether or not you speak any Chinese, consider traveling to China with Gotoco, free of charge!

The aim is to introduce more Western university students to China and its diverse culture, allowing the next generation of leaders to engage with one of the most economically, politically and culturally important countries of the 21st century.

In summers 2016 and 2017, Gotoco helped over 500 students from universities across the UK and USA visit China and teach English to Chinese children in summer camps all over the country. Now they hope to expand this opportunity to students at UVA!

Where?
Gotoco has programs in over 60 locations across China, including large urban centers like Beijing and Guangzhou, smaller cities including Hangzhou, Qingdao and Shantou, and scenic rural areas around Guangxi, Yunnan and Gansu.

China has very diverse and impressive natural environments, as well as bustling metropolises, and we encourage you to travel and explore as many as you can when you come to China with us!

When?
Most programs run from the beginning of July for 4-6 weeks. However, there are also a number of programs in May, June and August. Programs run for a minimum of 2 weeks, with the longest lasting 8-12 weeks. Apply today to find the right program for you.

Why?
Gotoco makes it its policy not to charge students to go to China to enable as many people as possible to have the opportunity to take part. There are no fees for participation, and accommodation and food are provided free of charge for the duration of your stay.
-       Visit a diverse, fast-growing, culturally-rich country
-       Inspire the next generation of Chinese children to learn English, and earn a Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate.
-       Learn or practice your Mandarin
-       Explore historical and cultural centers
-       See stunning scenery, including the Karst mountains around Yangshuo, Guangxi
-       Enjoy 5-days free accommodation at Gotoco’s base in Yangshuo at the end of your program

How?

We hope to boost the numbers of UVA students taking part in future, so are reserving 10 positions for any UVA students that apply with this link http://www.go-to.co/apply-now/?reserved_for=UVA

SUMMER ANALYST INTERNSHIP POSITION AT THE NEW YORK FED

SUMMER ANALYST INTERNSHIP POSITION AT THE NEW YORK FED

The Summer Analyst Internship program provides undergraduates an opportunity to learn about and contribute to the work done by the Research and Statistics Group.   Over the course of the summer, our economists—whose specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets, international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics—work closely with Summer Analysts on long-term, academically orientated research projects as well as current public policy work. In addition to their daily responsibilities, summer analysts attend events and weekly presentations hosted by senior management. These presentations provide a broad and extensive overview of the Bank's responsibilities and operations. In addition to serving as a prime learning opportunity for undergraduates interested in economic research, the summer analyst program also establishes a strong pool of candidates for recruitment into the full-time Research Analyst position at the FRBNY upon graduation.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity.  Summer Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity.  Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, or other related fields.

 

In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in economics.  It is important to us that we succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of summer analysts each year. Thus we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to apply. As a representative of your institution and student body, we ask that you please help us in passing this message along to any candidates you may know who may be otherwise hesitant to apply.

Governor McAuliffe Announces Launch of New Virginia Management Fellows Program

 

~ Program aimed at preparing next generation of government leaders; developed in conjunction with Virginia Tech ~

 

RICHMOND – Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced the application launch for the first Virginia Management Fellows (VMF) class. The program is an initiative of the Commonwealth of Virginia developed with Virginia Tech to meet the state’s needs for future leaders. Recent undergraduate, Master’s, or Ph.D.-level graduates who are dedicated to serving the residents of Virginia will compose the first cohort of fellows.

 

“I am pleased to announce the launch of the Virginia Management Fellows program today,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Virginia is blessed with the most talented and dedicated state workforce in the nation, and we are committed to cultivating the next generation of public servants to continue our success building the new Virginia economy. I look forward to seeing this first class of fellows grow into strong, confident leaders who will bring their talents to state government.”

 

The General Assembly approved the learning program, salary, and benefit structure of the VMF.  The program’s principal leader, Secretary of Finance Ric Brown, worked with finance colleagues, executive cabinet members, legislators, and faculty members from Virginia Tech’s School of Public and International Affairs to design a comprehensive learning program for the new fellows.   

 

The program aims to create a succession pipeline for leadership and management jobs in all branches of state government that will be in high demand as current employees begin to retire. According to recent data from the Commonwealth, 42 percent of general managers, 39 percent of financial managers, and 30 percent of compliance and safety officers will be eligible for retirement within the next five years.

 

“The VMF program is a major step in fulfilling Virginia’s need to cultivate talented next-generation leaders who can understand and actively affect how things are done at the state level,” said Secretary of Finance Ric Brown. “These fellows will enter government leadership roles uniquely qualified to tackle the ‘bigger picture’ issues and practical challenges of state strategic management and leadership.”

 

The fellows position is a two-year leadership and management development certificate program with a cutting-edge approach to state leadership learning. The position includes salary and full benefits, as well as access to the Virginia Retirement System programs. At the end of the fellowship period, fellows will be able to apply for high-demand positions within state government.

 

"The School of Public and International Affairs at Virginia Tech is excited to be a partner in this innovative program to develop public service leadership for the Commonwealth through hands-on learning, coursework, mentoring, outstanding faculty, and more,” saidAnne Khademian, director of the School of Public and International Affairs at Virginia Tech.

 

The program features four major learning components: customer service; operations; legislation, regulation, and compliance; and analytics. Each fellow is assigned to and embedded within a state agency for a rotation around these learning areas. A special feature of the rotation is the support and guidance of a mentor-leader.  

 

Participating agencies include the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Department of Criminal Justice Services, Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission, Virginia Department of Health, House Appropriations Committee, Department of Human Resources Management, Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Planning and Budget, Senate Finance Committee, State Council of Higher Education in Virginia, State Corporation Commission, Virginia Retirement System, Department of Taxation, and Department of the Treasury.

STANFORD OPPORTUNITY LAB PRE-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

STANFORD OPPORTUNITY LAB PRE-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

Full-Time Research Assistant Positions
Professors Raj Chetty, John N. Friedman, and Nathaniel Hendren

We are looking to hire several full-time pre-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2018-19 to work with our research group on the Equality of Opportunity Project. The overarching mission of the project is to develop scalable policy solutions that will empower families throughout the United States to rise out of poverty and achieve better life outcomes. We pursue this mission primarily by conducting rigorous, scientific research that harnesses the power of “big data” using an interdisciplinary approach. Current projects study the long-term impacts of neighborhoods, the role of colleges as a pathway to upward mobility, the determinants of innovation and entrepreneurship, and how social networks may affect poverty. The research uses “big data” and quasi-experimental methods to identify causal effects and test the predictions of economic and sociological models. Recent results from these projects have appeared in the New York Times and have been cited in the President's State of the Union address.

We anticipate positions available in Stanford CA, Cambridge MA, Providence RI, and Washington D.C. under the direction of Professors Chetty, Friedman, and Hendren. The fellowship will include a variety of tasks that provide preparation for graduate school, such as analyzing data, developing statistical models, creating presentations, and editing research papers. In addition to working with faculty as research assistants, the pre-doctoral fellows frequently co- author papers with other students or faculty members. Fellows will interact regularly with professors and their collaborators – such as David Deming, Matthew Jackson, and Emmanuel Saez –in a team-oriented lab environment, with weekly lab meetings and other informal events. The program serves as an ideal bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in empirical economics. Most previous fellows have gone on to top Ph.D. programs. Salary will be competitive.

Applicants should be completing (or have completed) a Bachelors or Master’s degree and have strong quantitative and programming skills. Candidates with research experience are strongly preferred, especially those with experience in Stata, SAS, R, Python, or Hadoop. Candidates need not be Economics majors, though they should have a strong interest in and some experience with Economics. Candidates would ideally begin on June 1, 2018 and work for us for two years before applying to graduate school in Economics or another quantitative social science.

To apply, please:
1) Submit a formal application through Stanford (Job Number: 76029)

page1image21240page1image21408page1image21568page1image21728page1image21888page1image22048page1image22368

2) Upload your resume, cover letter (optional), resume, transcripts, and a writing sample through our group's online form.

Questions can be directed to Sarah Merchant and Jamie Gracie at chettylab@gmail.com. We will review applications, conduct interviews, and make offers in two rounds: one in mid-fall and one in late-winter. Applications received by October 31, 2017, will be eligible for the first round. First-round decisions will be announced around November 15, 2017. All applications received before February 28, 2018 will be considered for the second round, and those decisions will be made around March 15, 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you sponsor visas for international candidates? Yes, we sponsor J-1 and H-1B visas.

2. What kind of writing sample should I submit?
The writing sample should ideally be an economics research paper, but you may submit whatever you feel best demonstrates your analytic and writing abilities. It can be any length.

3. Can I get feedback on my application?
Given the number of applications we receive, we are sorry that we cannot provide individual feedback.

4. What are you looking for in an applicant?
Successful applicants have strong transcripts including advanced courses in economics, math, or computer science. We look for demonstrated interest in and experience with economics research, through the writing sample and resume. US citizens with a background in computer science are particularly encouraged to apply.

5. Are there any summer research assistant opportunities?
Our group only hires full-year pre-doctoral fellows. We encourage students to apply in the final year of their undergraduate or master’s program.

    JPMorgan and Travel to China for Business Exposure

    JPMorgan and Travel to China for Business Exposure

    We would like to invite you to the “China Insight” Trek this coming August, with a focus on China’s rural country development & agriculture sector.

     

    Held by World Youth Development Forum, “China Insight” Trek aims to offer students 360 degree view of China through structured visit. In the past 10+ years, we visited the State Council, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Commerce, Development and Reform Commission, the Bank of China, Alibaba, Didi, etc. We also met many high-level state and business leaders, such as the Vice Premier of PRC, the Governor of People’s Bank of China, Vice President of Alibaba, Vice President of China Development Bank; etc.

     

    Please check out a video introduction of WYDF “China Insight” Trek 2016 throughhttp://english.cri.cn/12394/2016/03/31/4201s922586.htm and a video sharing from our former trekker Michael He of Harvard College at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cv-0vAqF_g if you are interested.

    Each “China Insight” Trek has different theme and focus. 2017 August’s “China Insight” Trek’s theme is “Fast Developing Rural Countries”. It will start on August 9th in Beijing and finish on August 22th in Jinhua. During the 14-day trip, we will spend the first few days in Beijing to get to know central government and its policy, and spend the rest time in Jinhua, a rural country in Zhejiang province, to get first-hand experience of China’s rural country development.

    This trek will combine a good amount of high-level official events and rural country entities visit with typical cultural and leisure activities, such as visiting historical places of interests. You will have the opportunity to interact with a diverse range of people and get an insider’s perspective of the "real" China, especially its developing strategy.

    Just to give you a quick taste of what you will get:

    • Interaction with high-level Chinese government officials

    • In-depth economics & policy seminar with top-notched academics and businessmen

    • Onsite visit to private enterprises and rural countries in China

    • Chinese family visit & dinner

    • World-renowned tourist attractions: the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the West Lake

    • Authentic local delicacies: Peking duck and Zhejiang delicacies

    • 1 on 1 Chinese study buddy to help you understand China better

    English-speaking tour guides will be available during the trip. In addition, we will pair 1 trekker with 1 Chinese student to help you know China better in Jinhua.

    The cost of the trip, which is generously partially subsidized by our local hosts, is about $2000 per person, which NOT includes international flight, but includes meals, domestic transportation, double occupancy at hotels, tips to tour guides, attraction tickets, etc. You are also required to obtain your visa to China (about $140 for US citizens, US$30 for non-US citizens), and purchase any necessary medical / emergency insurance.

    Our application deadline is 11:59 PM on April 30th, 2017. To ensure a high-quality experience, we intend to limit the number of attendees. If you are interested, we strongly encourage you to apply ASAP through this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeLl3YeSWUqkQSHLYZzrsX58CAHa1NWqy9mIpZj3bLFqRHFxQ/viewform.
