Our client is about two years old and is headquartered in Ireland but has their analytics and software hub in Chicago. They are now upping their analytics level of sophistication and need to hire several people in short order. Their plan is to double the size in 2018.

    This sort of situation is not for everybody – it’s a startup, so the timelines are tight, the work responsibilities will vary and change, and there will be at least a degree of risk. But it’s an opportunity to get in on the ground floor and to be able to have a measurable impact to the success of a new company. So if you would like to jump into a situation that will leverage your credit modeling skills in a new way, this may be for you.
