  • Comfortable with process analysis and design, particularly where processes span multiple teams 
  • Great at data analysis yielding insight to inform strategic decision making
  • Proficient at producing visuals to meet the needs of the audience. (i.e. high-level conceptual visuals, low-level detailed visuals and everything in between)

Is this the job for me? 

Ideally you will have:

  • Focus on solving customer problems through technology
  • Thrive in highly collaborative environments
  • Enjoying working with multiple product teams in a highly agile environment
  • Have enjoyed previous experience of managing business and technical requirements
  • Diving into the details of a problem while retaining a broad view of what the platform is seeking to achieve
