Job Overview:

Job Purpose

Operations Support Analysts immediately respond to system-related issues, ensuring low impact and high customer satisfaction. The Operations Support Analyst must be a motivated team player that can see projects to completion, work independently, and be willing to assist other staff in areas not specific to their duties. This is not a typical NOC/helpdesk role, nor is it system or network administration. It is part of a highly specialized support organization responsible for the daily operations of multiple industry-leading trading exchanges, clearing systems, and data distribution services. This position requires identifying, troubleshooting, and resolving internal system problems and external customer-related IT issues. The role requires a blend of general technical and business knowledge, creative solution building, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the overall architecture of the ICE exchanges, divisions, clearing, and infrastructure.

This is a 24x7 environment with global support by teams across multiple continents. Cross-training travel opportunities are possible, but this role may also require occasional odd hours or weekend work.


  • Assist with troubleshooting of day-to-day internal and customer issues and provide direct support to clients
  • Maintain operations and administration of ICE systems using existing policies and procedures
  • Adhere to Incident Management policy by maintaining ownership of production incidents including communication, escalation, and follow-up for root-cause analysis
  • Prepare documentation for troubleshooting and escalation procedures
  • Control computer system(s) on schedule by means of system terminal, operator checklists, and third-party software

Knowledge and Experience

  • Associates/Bachelor’s degree or equivalent systems/application support experience
  • Experience with Linux Operating System
  • Able to work in a service-oriented team environment

  • Basic Unix Shell scripting skills
  • Help Desk or Customer Service experience
  • Basic knowledge of FIX Protocol
