Job Description :

You just figure it out.” These five words describe how you approach problems – and hey, maybe how you approach life overall.


You analyze a problem, find the best solution, and implement it. Then you iterate, and do again. And we want you to do it with us as a Business Analyst as part of John Hancock Retirement Planning Service (RPS) Division. We’re a lean, flat and experimental team that combines science and engineering to identify and inject high-value insights into the Retirement Planning process. The team works in quick iterations, using cutting edge techniques and algorithms that are best suited for the various challenges, which include but not limited to: sales, distribution, marketing and pricing. Results of this work will be presented and transformed in a variety of ways, including interactive visualizations, web applications, presentations and publications.


Here’s the deal: we need your big, beautiful brain to help transform business goals and objectives into tangible next steps like requirements documents and system designs.


You’ll do things like:

·         Use your mad analytical skills to bring order to chaos. Okay, maybe not full-on zombie apocalypse chaos, but you’ll keep projects on track using databases and tools like Excel.

·         Analyze business systems and solve complex problems.

·         Collaborate with other smart people like Project Managers and Business Users to develop top-notch user experience requirements…and do it before the deadline hits.  

·         Uncover, analyze, and define user requirements. Then you’ll clearly communicate these so everyone knows their part in the master plan.

·         Work closely with data analyst and data scientist and assist the design and delivery of analytics recommendation to our business partners.


This is the job for you because:

·         You learn fast. Like “The Flash” fast. You pick up new ideas, concepts, technologies, applications, and tools at warp speed.

·         You’ve got experience with predictive model development and project management methodologies – as well as PowerPoint, Excel along with SQL, Tableau and D3.

·         You question everything in a way that gets to the root of an issue so you can go do something about it.

·         You’re an all-round super star: an enthusiastic team player with crazy-good communications skills who puts the customer at the centre of everything you do.

·         You know that part of innovation is failure. And when you fail, you always fail forward…learning something new and becoming even better than you were before.

·         You are pursuing a degree in something like Computer Science, Engineering, Business, Finance, or Math. And hey, if you have a combo of Business and another discipline, you’ll score bonus points with us!
