Role Description

Financial services firms have significant challenges and great opportunities to manage and exploit data – their own and new big data sets. Their ability to compete, to comply, and to transform is tied to their ability to unlock hidden links between data scattered around various data silos and extract value from it. Next generation tools in the industry will include AI systems powered by knowledge graphs – able to handle complexity and ensure that the answers they provide have context and can be explained.

Graph and Semantic Engineering are emerging enterprise data technologies that leverage ontologies and related advanced analytics – including artificial intelligence – to build and represent knowledge in expressive and novel ways.

Capco’s clients are beginning to exploit this paradigm shift – a shift in how highly variable structured and unstructured information is linked – to building knowledge that can be meaningfully understood by people and machines.

Primary responsibility in this role is to help clients succeed by understanding, exploiting, designing, and implementing solutions involving graph and semantic technologies – including advanced data management and analytics, and other innovative new ways.

Other responsibilities include growing the Data Practice domain in scale and capability – applying an entrepreneurial mindset to build upon Capco established capabilities and relationships – maintaining thought leadership in how graph is applied today, and where future strategies could lead.

This will involve:

  • Shaping and executing the hiring strategy and developing the best of in-house talent.
