Job Description

The Corporate Model Risk Group (CMoR) is seeking an experienced quantitative analyst to join its Model Validation team.  Our diverse lines of business offer a world of opportunity to expand your capabilities and advance your career. We invest in our people and provide a supportive environment in which to learn and grow.

CMoR serves as the second line of defense to ensure the integrity of Wells Fargo’s model inventory.  This position will focus primarily on Fair Lending and Financial Crime model validations.  However, frequent special projects and seasonal requirements for CCAR validations will provide a variety of modeling contexts throughout each year.  A validation project typically begins and ends with the analyst, requiring broad and continuous attention to detail, comprehensive documentation, and interactions with developers.  Meetings with auditors and regulators will require recall of validation details.  

CMoR operates in a fast-paced work environment with continuously changing policies and technologies.  The successful candidate is expected to be self- motivated, require minimal supervision, and produce work that is consistent with CMoR’s recognized high standards.  Effective work will involve familiarity with source systems of record, analytical data and sampling plans, model replications, model performance assessments, and test model development as effective challenges to lines of business.  It further requires strength in writing detailed standard analytical reports to ensure Wells Fargo’s compliance with governance policies and regulations.   Each validation report will include assessments of the specific business, model purpose and history, the model methodology, data integrity, model development, performance, implementation, and monitoring.  These documents are read by a broad audience, including auditors and regulators.

  • Knowledge of Python and other similar data analytical programming tools

  • Model validation experience and some knowledge of financial institution regulatory requirements

  • Team player with capacity for independent judgment, and a desire to share knowledge and work product with colleagues
