At the core of its operations, Interactive Brokers maintains a massive global database of stocks, commodities, financial contracts, exchanges and trading rules. This data drives all brokerage and proprietary trading systems. The database is structured and maintained by experienced programmers. It is automatically refreshed with daily uploads from hundreds of sources.
Reference Database Operators are the content experts. They are constantly learning on the job, communicating with data users from throughout the company and maintaining contacts at external sources. On a daily basis, they work with developers to improve and design new data handling procedures.
- Answer company wide questions about the nature, completeness and correctness of the data, using judgement and primary sources to determine whether on-the-fly updates are warranted.
- Handle special cases when the existing system structure is incomplete, consulting with developers to further generalize and automate.
- On-board new data sources and maintain external relationships.
- Work closely with developers to integrate new data sets into the existing database structure. Plan upload protocol and sanity checks to ensure data integrity. Design error handling procedures to minimize reliance on manual intervention. Write and maintain comprehensive guides to the data for users and developers.
Reference Database Operators are precise, patient and they are good communicators. Three years of experience in the financial industry. Evidence of knowledge of financial products. Experience with US listed options (OCC) and the biggest European exchanges (e.g. Euronext).
