Your role:

The development team is creating and managing the software and systems behind the state-of-the-art technology platform.   As a business analyst you will be playing a full part in the team, helping to build out the service platform by establishing the requirements framework for the development team.   Your work will be used in both high volume transaction environments (back-end APIs) and our forward-facing client user interfaces (front-end web services).  You will be:


●      Building product roadmaps, epics and user stories to deliver compelling, commercially viable digital products across our service environment

About you

In order to be successful in this role, we are looking for people with experience in business analysis, that are self-starters, used to working in a dynamic environment and with a passion for learning more and for helping others.


Well practiced in agile development, you could currently be a junior business analyst looking to develop skills and to take on a larger challenge, or an existing business analyst that relishes the challenge of delivering systems in to a high-volume, high-availability SaaS environment.  Either way, we are looking for practical people with the right experience and attitude that have a passion for developing systems in to demanding environments such as ours.
