Product Analyst (Co-op)
“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 Product Analyst as part of our Boston Operations and Analytics Experience team.
Here’s the deal: we need your big, wonderful brain to help transform business goals and objectives into tangible next steps like requirements documents and system designs.
You’ll do things like:
Analyze business systems and solve complex problems.
Collaborate with other smart people like Developers, Product Managers and Business Users to develop top-notch business/system requirements…and do it before the deadline hits.
Uncover, analyze, and define user requirements in the form of user stories. Then you’ll clearly communicate these so everyone knows their part in the master plan.
Be a watchdog for issues as they crop up – and be quick to identify them and recommend solutions.
Work closely with Developers and Product Managers in an Agile environment utilizing a DevOps mindset so the best solutions go forward…perfectly.
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 systems development and project management methodologies – as well as the MS Office software suite.
You question everything. Not in an annoying way of course, but 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 interpersonal 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.
Someday soon, you’ll make your parents proud with 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!
You have the knowledge or interest in global financial markets including, but not limited to, Equity, Fixed Income and Foreign Exchange
