Posted 10 July by IRESS

About the role

Responsible for providing services as a subject matter expert (SME) for all Live implementations of MSO (Mortgage Sales and Originations Software) V2 and V1 legacy projects, acting as an MSO support specialist within the Application Support team.

About you

You have strong interpersonal and presentation skills with the ability to communicate at all levels in a resolute but diplomatic manner. You are adaptable to change activities within the project without direct supervision, whilst working under pressure. You can prioritise activities against an agreed plan, with a keen eye for detail, coupled with a focus on quality. You will come from an Analytical or Incident Management background, where you utilise excellent forensic and problem solving skills. SQL skills are required to write queries for a data fix or investigation purposes. At times, you will need to be robust and resilient, with the confidence to stand own ground or deliver bad news (diplomatically) to senior management or challenge the viability of a business case.

  • Triaging incidents and collecting forensic material to assist in the resolution of live incidents
  • Testing and recreating live incident behaviours in the application support environments
  • Ensure that PII information received from clients to assist in incident triage is controlled in the way defined in the IRESS GDPR Asset Information register
  • Developing and maintaining SQL scripts for investigation, configuration changes and live data fix purposes
  • Accurate maintenance of incident records using the Incident Management software package and Defect Management software package (currently TFS)
  • Engagement with clients, supporting their triage activities
  • Engagement with 3rd parties, where applicable, supporting service integration triage
  • Actively involved in the coordination and scoping of delivery of hot-fix patches with clients and other teams
  • Creating/Supporting creation of test plans and highlighting any additional test resource demand and executing these for the delivery of hot-fix patches
  • Creation and delivery of release notes for hot-fix patches, including any test recreation steps
  • Creation of instructions to be followed by Hosted Operations team
  • Actively supporting continual improvements, standardisation across clients, establishing efficiencies and optimising application support processes
  • Supporting multiple live client implementations, assisting other members of the Application Support team
  • Promoting awareness and sharing knowledge of configuration and 3rd party systems inside and outside the Application Support team
  • As required, provide off-site consultancy to clients
  • Attending regular reviews with the Client Delivery Manager (Application Support)
