We have a full-time position in Atlanta for a Hyperion support person, someone who has a solid understanding of the fundamentals behind Hyperion Essbase (could be version 6 or 7 or 9): dense/sparse, ASO versus BSO, calc scripts, load rules, etc.

This could be someone who has 6 – 12 months Essbase development experience or someone with several years experience. The key is someone with a solid understanding of the fundamentals behind Essbase,someone who is over the initial learning curve.

This is not a management role. It is a support position with a small and very dynamic team that supports the Hyperion suite across the entire enterprise. This team does what has to be done to keep things moving so you have to be able to figure things out.

If you have back-off from learning/using new technology to do something you’ve not done before then this job is not for you.

You must be comfortable with and enjoy learning new things and doing things you may not have done before: for example, supporting a web server, coding in SQL or some scripting language, installing software, handling user support requests, performing Hyperion administrative tasks, etc.

Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential. This is not a backroom techie position. You must be able to take direction and run with it, fit into a small group of people, and expect occasions where you will be interacting with upper level management.

We are looking for someone with a proven technical aptitude, someone who enjoys the technical side of things, and has a strong desire to learn new things. This does not have to be in the Hyperion space. This position is a combination of business knowledge and technical capabilities. So, for example, it could be someone who has done scripting in VBscript or Perl or messed around with computer networks or built web pages in their spare time, etc.

The successful applicant needs to show a similar level of interest in computer technology and a willingness to get in there and get the job done.
The team supports about 100 Essbase cubes with 40 in hardcore production. Web Analysis (Analyzer), Financial Reports, EIS, and Hyperion Planning are in use. Analyzer and Reports are not used that heavily but will be. The backend is BEA Weblogic (web server). Lots of ETL work through whatever means necessary (MS Access, SQL Server, VB scripting, etc.).

7.x is in use but System 9 is installed with migration-to-production planned completed by end of this year. Several of the applications will be reviewed for optimization. There will be new Essbase development. In all, this is an excellent opportunity to learn, experience, and grow.

The starting base salary is competitive and includes a bonus component and full benefits package.
