DataArt to open consultancy business
“DataArt, a New York-based financial software provider, plans to hire in its NY and London offices in preparation of a jump into the consultancy side of financial technology, according to Alexei Miller, executive vice president. DataArt will be covering design, business analysis, data-driven feature prioritization, lifecycle management, product launch planning, system modernization, user experience design and A/B testing for budding and existing hedge funds, Miller noted. To do that will require fresh talent in the field of user experience, he added.
“We have to beef up our presence in NY and London to deliver consultancy locally,” said Miller. “You need to be in a client-facing office to be able to do that and thus we are hiring people with specific product knowledge, like user experience, fixed income, and FX.”
