Performance Measurement and Attribution Tester (SaaS)
Our client is implementing a new Performance Platform based on the FactSet/BiSam B-One SaaS Platform. In the initial Phase 1, a set of approximately 300 Portfolios will be moved over to the new Performance Platform; Subsequently, several thousand portfolios will be transferred over.
In order to feed the new Performance Platform, our client is co-operating with a second SaaS Provider to develop a Data Aggregation Layer and Application. This Layer will accept daily data feeds (Positions and valuations) from the Fund Accountants, mix this with data from the internal EDM (Enterprise Data Master) and then deliver to Bi-Sam a dataset already transformed into the BiSam Logical and Technical Data Model. The Data Aggregation Application will also undertake a series of Data Quality and Completeness checks on the daily data set(s) before delivery to the B-One Performance Engine.
Our client now requires a test team of 2 Test Professionals within the team to design, build and execute both Integration and UAT test cases to cover both the B-One Performance Engine Configuration (there is NO custom development in this Platform to test), as well as the Data Aggregation Application. This will consist of the following activities:-
- Identifying test points in the process and technical designs
- Writing suitable and complete test cases to cover all test points, including both positive and negative test cases; both functional tests and SaaS Operational tests
- Buy or Sell side industry experience
- Execution of the test cases
- Recording of the results
- Raising of Defects and management thereof with the various SaaS Partners
- Reporting of Progress and Defect status
- Supporting Business Users in the execution of the UAT and recording of results.
With ideally at least five years' experience in the test of End-User Platforms, you have already been through at least one full implementation of a new SaaS based Performance Engine. You will be aware of the general concepts of Performance Return and Attribution as well as understanding how to test data flows and transformations.
You will be self-motivated and able to work as part of a small focussed team. Given tight timelines, you are pragmatic and able to focus on delivery and not just concepts. Able to communicate, you are also likely experienced in working with Third Party Service Providers and testing the configuration of Off-the-Shelf software.
