careers / Technical Business Analyst
Full Time – Christchurch, New Zealand

We are looking for a business analyst with solid technical knowledge to act as the bridge between our partners and delivery team, primarily through understanding and translating business requirements into technical artefacts. You’ll be working alongside a team of passionate, creative and dedicated Business Analysts, Software Developers and Project Leads to ensure we Build the Right Thing while providing our partners with the best experience working with us and our software.


At Media Suite, we have amazing partners (customers) and people who love working together to solve challenging problems. We are passionate about work which will enable humans to adapt in a fast-changing world and we create systems and software to solve challenging and meaningful problems in various domains. If you’re up for a challenge and want to be surrounded by awesome colleagues who care deeply about what they do, you’re looking in the right place.


We are keen to employ full-time roles, however, we also understand that full-time work does not fit into everyone's lives for any number of reasons. With this in mind, we will work closely with the right person to balance work/life. 


About you:

Whatever your background, you will definitely need to be:

  • Committed to quality and keen attention to detail;

  • Able to work well under constantly changing deadlines and priorities;

  • Adept at engaging and communicating technical ideas to a non-technical audience;

  • Skilled at stakeholder engagement;

  • Strong at analysing and problem solving;

  • Curious and inherently motivated by review, feedback and improvement;

  • Willing to go the extra mile to make our partners & stakeholders happy;

Some of the practical day-to-day things you can expect to be doing:

  • Leading or facilitating workshops or meetings in order to gather information from partner representatives;

  • Work with project teams to understand technical details and propose solutions to changes, defect fixes and operational issues;

  • Contribute to the design of business processes, user and system interfaces, and system integrations;

  • Lead analysis and design phases of the project to prepare for future development phases;

  • Build and maintain effective relationships with internal and external stakeholder, collaborate with cross functional teams to build the right thing

  • Work with Partner Outcome Managers to ensure that requests for proposals and sales opportunities are designed for delivery appropriately.

  • Collaborate with Project Technical Leads to produce technical specifications for applications, API data mapping, interfaces and system integrations

  • Act as the subject matter expert on application data, integration, mapping and reporting on projects

Skills, Experience & Education:

You will definitely have relevant professional experience but we are open to what that experience might look like. It would certainly be advantageous if you had a background in agile software development or testing/QA background.


Here are some of the skills and experience we are looking for:


  • Minimum 2 years’ experience as a technical analyst with previous experience in converting business requirements and functional requirements to use cases, epics, and user stories with acceptance criteria.

  • Demonstrated capacity to work with minimum supervision and direction and ability to work collaboratively with others when the nature of the project requires a team effort.


If this role sounds like one that might make you excited to come into work every day, go ahead, write us a covering letter telling us who you are, why you’d be a great fit for this role, and what you bring to the table.


About us:

We cherish our culture, so every hire we make is carefully considered. If you’re tempted to join the Media Suite team, be sure to read on and make sure we’re aligned.


We are a team of curious-minded people who support each other, hold robust debates and don’t mind helping each other move house on the weekend. We thrive on challenges, we view our successes (and failures) as opportunities for growth, and we never, ever want to stop learning. We value mindset over skill set and we believe the team is more powerful than the individual.


We are an equal-opportunities employer, we don’t just accept our differences, we celebrate our diversity and grow through sharing our unique experiences and perspectives. We are wholeheartedly committed to creating an inclusive environment that offers each of us the chance to thrive.

  • An awesome team to work with;
