  • When necessary, support relevant teams across the company to ensure product meets expected technical/functional requirements.
  • Model solutions to solve technical problems and analyse the use of third party tool integrations to achieve product goals
  • Work with various stakeholders and key team members to ensure product requirements are complete before the estimation and build process starts

  • You’re hands-on and take satisfaction in supporting colleagues, projects or tasks however big or small
  • You value collaboration and are at your best when you’re part of a team
  • You can accept business goals, but can also consider technical constraints
