More information about this job


What it is: As a Data & Business Analyst within our Product team, you’ll interact with clients and institutional investors to acquire, input and assure the quality of the data that feeds eVestment’s applications. You’ll also review and analyze institutional investor information gathered and distributed though the eVestment web site. You will learn how the largest institutional investors manage their assets.


You’ll be comfortable interacting with clients and institutional investors via phone, email and in person. You’ll assist with creating easily repeatable procedures for identifying potentially inaccurate or bad data as well as assist with developing identification processes for improving validation within the data collection process.


You will support clients and prospects answering data inquiries and instructing them on use of multiple product platforms. Additionally, you’ll collaborate with the eVestment's client service, product strategy, marketing, sales, and technology teams regularly. You will assist in marketing efforts, developing campaigns, analyzing prospects, and writing research content.


What we need: We are looking for proof of your passion for financial data or willingness to learn. A conceptual knowledge of databases is a plus. Exceptional attentiveness to detail and strong customer service skills are a must; you will be working with investors to review, analyze and input data.  We want to hear about how you’ve successfully prioritized tasks and executed appropriate planning and time management strategies to achieve project objectives.


A certain degree of personal accountability, creativity, and latitude are required and encouraged. Your desire to build working knowledge of applicable financial terminology and industry best practices will help you be successful in this role and in our company. You embrace technology (Excel proficiency is just the beginning for you); creating pivot tables, using VLOOKUP is already a part of your skill set. We need excellence. This means your communication skills are stellar: polished, professional communication skills and detailed analytical skills are vital as client interaction is high. We need innovation. This means you question the status quo and love asking “What if…?” We need teamwork. This means when a colleague asks “Can someone help me with…?” you’re quick to answer “Yes.” We need humility. This means you understand about lending a hand where necessary. We need integrity. This means you deliver results with little supervision and don’t hesitate to acknowledge, own, and resolve errors you’ve made (we all make them, we just have to learn from them).


We are eVestment, a Nasdaq company and we make smart money smarter. We are about giving institutional investors as much big data as they need to make smart investment decisions. BlackRock, UBS, Towers-Watson, Putnam and AON Hewitt are just a few of the clients who trust our cloud-based technology platforms. We are a Top Atlanta workplace, ranking #1 in the 2015 Atlanta Journal & Constitution “Top Atlanta Workplaces” list. Our environment is fun, smart, and collaborative. Casual dress, catered weekly lunches, unlimited PTO (because we trust our people), and regular teambuilding activities are part of what makes our environment awesome. We provide exceptional opportunities for development with a dedicated training budget, tuition reimbursement, and time off for training and certification preparation. We’ve also ranked consistently on the Inc. 5000 fastest growing firms list every year since 2007, and we have over 300 amazing team members around the globe.
