In the Market Risk Models team, we own Nordea’s market risk models. The models are used to calculate capital levels. Capital is one of the most important business drivers in current banking, and capital models are therefore cornerstones in a successful bank, ensuring stability, profitability and regulatory compliance. We work broadly across our value chain, collaborating with trading, risk management, infrastructure, IT, model validation, audit and regulators. We use powerful tools like Python, SQL, Git, Confluence and LaTex and agile ways of working to deliver value quickly.  

What you’ll be doing:  

  • Calibrate existing models and performing analysis and tests of them  
  • Document methodology, assumptions, analysis and tests  
  • Develop new methodology  
  • Build prototypes in our Python code library which taps into Nordea’s new micro-service based IT infrastructure

You love learning and trying new things, and you’re excited about bringing your ideas to the table. You’re honest and dependable, willing to speak up even when it’s difficult, and committed to empowering others. You’re passionate about doing a great job.  

To really make an impact as a model builder in Nordea, you are eager to deliver results in a collaborative environment where nothing is done by one person only. You enjoy teaming up and you are passionate about finding the right solutions.  

Your background:  

  • University degree (master or PhD) within a quantitative field (Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Finance, Economics, Engineering)  
  • 3-4+ years of experience with market risk or pricing models (exceptional candidates with less experience may be considered as well)
  • Experience with concise writing in English
