Job Description

A global payment service provider is looking for a system analyst to join their Analyst team to support the delivery of payment gateway solutions in a fast-paced Scaled Agile environment. Working closely with Product and Development teams based alongside us in Edinburgh, and also with remote teams based within the UK and in Dublin.

The nature of our projects is centred on back end system interactions i.e. payment gateway communication with 3rd parties such as merchants, acquiring banks or other payment services providers. To achieve this, the focus of the systems analyst is to work within the detail of system interface specs, data mapping and gap analysis. Whilst there are supporting tools available to our customers to facilitate their integration to our products, there tends to be very little UI work involved.

• Collaborate with your Agile development team(s) and system architects to understand the impact on gateway systems and agree the optimal functional solution for new product features

• Take an active role in the SAFe PI Planning process, preparing features for the planning event and working through these features with your team to plan their delivery

• Through team backlog grooming sessions and individual elaboration activity, define user stories that capture the functional requirements identified to meet the agreed solution.

• Take responsibility for the prioritisation of the team backlog and for accepting user stories on build completion

• Produce internal & external-facing supporting documentation using standard templates and natural language.



• Key competencies are required in working with internal & external interfaces, with APIs & xml

• Basic competencies in SQL/querying writing are useful but not essential.
