  • Receiving and analysing client requests regarding the creation and modification of calculation methods within our trading system, their specification, implementation, testing and going live (focus)
  • The creation of the formulas usually follows an interactive and iterative process with the customer (trader) and requires good communication and, if necessary, coordination between customers, support, development and test teams
  • Supporting the team in analysing and reproducing customer problems after the initial capture by the helpdesk
  • Troubleshooting including remote analysis on customer systems or systems in managed SaaS operation - with a focus on calculation methods
  • Solution-oriented communication with the customer as well as monitoring of open customer enquiries and tickets
  • Installation of our software and updates in the customer system as well as support in projects
  • Implementation of internal and external trainings (formula creation)
