    Objectives of this Role

    Our Team

    The Audit team is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Nasdaq Agreements and policies. Over the past couple of years, we have started to build technology solutions to enhance the capabilities of the team, automate mundane tasks, and use technology to identify compliance issues.

    We have two teams, one team is responsible for conducting audits to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions, the second team is mainly developers building solutions for internal use, and to sell to external customers.

    Project Overview

    The intern will be working on projects that enhance the automation of the audit team, identify new areas for automation, and build programs that automate the compliance function.

    Daily and Monthly Responsibilities

    Your Role

    The intern will use python to build programs to perform reconciliation activities or build programs that automate the manual tasks that auditors do on a daily basis. If the intern has virtual reality experience, he/she will build a program that will allow users to interact with our data and policies in a virtual way to enhance the sales process.

    The audit team is data-intensive and needs access to various data sources, so the auditor will also need to write to various sources of data and integrate that into the systems and identify certain patterns.
