Working as a team is what makes us great and spending quality time together is essential for keeping us mission-aligned.

Are you our next star player?

We are building a brand-new Sportsbook product that will take the best shared components from the Flutter Group, with a new bespoke UI presentation tier tailored to our customer needs. We are looking for somebody with significant experience in agile technical business analysis to assist our platform squads with the understanding, build, deployment and operation of the critical shared capability components.

It’s your chance to build new products that will ultimately be used by millions around the world, working with the best product and technology professionals, while learning new skills and developing yourself with a new challenge.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for an individual with deep experience of technical agile analysis. Key skills, behaviours and knowledge should include:

  • Strong business analysis skills, including detailing of technical requirements via user stories and appropriate diagramming techniques
  • Superb communication skills, both verbal and written, particularly comfortable operating in highly technical teams
  • Able to effectively manage expectations of partners; can effectively present options and recommendations to partners

Your behaviours

  • Collaborate with the Technical, Product & Delivery teams to understand key priorities, gather business requirements, and support early engagement
  • Converting technical requirements (both functional and non-functional) into user stories and acceptance criteria that technology teams can understand and act upon to iteratively deliver technical capabilities
  • Collaborate and interact with multi-disciplined platform teams, sharing the definition of the deliverables, ensuring that there is a clear understanding of what is being delivered and a common understanding of the success criteria/goals
  • Backlog grooming and interaction with the squad leads (3 amigos) to ensure work flows optimally through inception
  • Work with the squad to support urgent matters mid-delivery, including environment impacting issues
  • Balance multiple workstreams, while following through on deliverables
  • Supporting and challenge technical peers when required

What’s in it for you?

Our experience-based salaries are competitive. Plus, there’s a discretionary annual performance bonus. And we provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Leeds.

Your package will include:
