Job Description

Business Analyst 

Graduate role

Working closely with the founders your role is to help design the minimum viable product scaffold/design for a new Saas Product aimed to revolutionise the value of individuals and businesses and the Future of Work.

We are looking for a recent Masters graduate to help us to build the Saas product to MVP (minimal viable product stage) over the next 3 - 6 months.  Initially, the internship and contract will be for period 6 months, with a view to this extend as the MVP evolves into commercialisation. The development of the MVP will determine the outcome of a longer tenure but we expect this to evolve into a full-time Tech Lead position inside the business.

We employ design thinking/human-centred design methodologies in an agile product environment, working iteratively to produce the most effective and efficient product outcome.

Initially, you will be completing some investigative research that will help us to continue to improve the product value chain and design the technology road-map. This will include providing technical recommendations, sourcing applications and APIs that could be input into the technology roadmap, and identifying collaboration partners or competitors.

You will need to have a background in software development, ideally having worked in or on a Saas cloud-based product launch E2E and have an excellent grasp of new technologies that will include:

  • Data Analytics (interpreting business needs into a hosted environment)
  • Build Machine Learning Models (develop predictive models for interpreting new data)
  • Build Algorithms
  • Design Database


Specifically, however, we are seeking someone with deep experience in:

  • Interpreting business requirements into technology production roadmap
  • Developing technical requirements documentation
  • Managing and enabling data scientist - acting as conduit between technical team and business founders
  • Understanding of UX and design of future-proofed cloud based solutions
  • Project management
  • Product development

We are ideally looking for someone who has deep technical expertise, some business knowledge of taking a complex design idea into a live environment, and enthusiasm for building and creating a new platform that has the opportunity to be disruptive.

The candidate will need to be able to join our team on-site, and work to a fixed set of hours per week over the initial 6-month contract.
