This is a full time role based in our London offices.

  • Work with agile development teams to understand product features and functionality so that the team can break this work down into their sprint backlogs
  • Ensure that product owners and development teams operating in an agile environment have all the necessary information and documentation to deliver specific releases and long term product goals; be available as needed for agile scrum ceremonies
  • Participate in UAT and usability testing of designs, features and data integrations. Work with QA to test and manage new features to identify and log improvements and issues to resolve and to build these into further improve specifications
  • Join delivery service teams to understand and document client needs and translate into actionable development requirements
  • Understand and profile data sources in order to document requirements to access, extract and maintain real-time Encompass platform connections to these sources
  • Understand and document internal and external processes and workflows, constructing workflow charts and diagrams; studying system capabilities and writing specifications
  • Review, analyze and evaluate business systems and user needs - document requirements, define scope and objectives and formulate systems to complement overall business strategies
  • Improve systems by studying current practices and designing modifications
  • Recommend controls by identifying problems and writing improved procedures
  • Conduct ad-hoc financial, product, market, operational and related research to support strategic and business planning
  • Understand the product roadmap deeply - contribute to it, challenge it, break it apart and add customer value at all times

Qualifications & Experience

To succeed, you should have:

  • Knowledge and experience of agile ways of working, particularly scrum will be very helpful
  • Ability to interpret direction and create structure out of potentially vague and ambiguous direction
  • Ability to ask insightful questions to retrieve information from stakeholders, to absorb and contextualise what’s being said
  • Experience working to demanding timeframes and be able to prioritise effectively 
  • Able to manage stakeholders and other people’s time if you are dependent on them for information

It would be preferable if you have experience in some of the following:

  • Start-up or scale-up
