Must Haves – Tech Skills

  • Ability to analyse complex requirements and see past the surface request 
  • Ability to see how changes may impact the future product  
  • The ability to quickly master internal tools. Changing ways of working quickly and regularly won’t faze you.

  • Test and manage issues from development to production including working with external dev partners and third part integrations.   
  • Extensive experience in business analysis, with demonstrated exposure to working closely with technical and product (UX) teams to further application development (ideally with end-to-end delivery, the full breadth of the software development lifecycle)  
  • Deep understanding of analysis deliverables such as process maps, user stories, and acceptance criteria 
  • An enthusiastic interest in providing the best user experience when detailing requirements 
  • An interest in, and capability of, developing the future team. You want to be involved in hiring and training new colleagues, and have ideas about what that should look like. 
  • Ambition and excitement about joining a fast-moving tech startup, and specifically Legado’s products, mission and approach. 
  • Working with integrations to organisations to enhance the functionality within the product.  
  • Above all, you care about customers. You’re motivated by helping people and businesses, and will make sure customers’ voices are fed back to the rest of the business. 

If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you. If you’re not sure that you exactly fit the above criteria, get in touch anyway. Personality and attitude is just as important as experience!
