Business Analyst (m/f/x) – XING Entity Pages

Part time

The Entity Pages platform product enables companies, publishers and other entities to represent themselves on XING and engage with their audience. Our team is an international, cross-functional team based in Hamburg and Porto. We work with agile methodologies and base our product decision on user research & testing as well as the needs of the various customer groups.

We collaborate closely with other departments at XING who contribute additional, use-case specific modules to our platform – together we continuously improve our product for our users and customers.

A challenging task

  • You collaborate closely with Entity Page’s Product Manager who’s in charge of overall vision and priorities for the product.
  • You identify and clarify requirements based on user- and customer feedback as well as in collaboration with other teams. It’s important to actively reach out to colleagues at other teams within the company.
  • You work closely with development team to check for feasibility, sharpen acceptance criteria and refine user stories and tickets for prioritization in planning.
  • You make sure that documentation of the product is kept up-to-date and improved (by yourself as well as the team) to provide helpful guidance for other XING teams contributing to the Entity Pages platform as well as for customer facing departments.
  • If you findways to improve the collaborative process within your team as well as with other teams and partners you propose ways to improve the collaboration.
  • (Once COVID is over) occasional travel to Porto will be beneficial to strengthen collaboration with the development team. Porto is great! )
  • This is a part-time (ca 50%) position, initially limited to a 1 year contract but with good potential for extension into a permanent role.

A convincing background

  • You listen/read carefully to understand requirements and you are not shy to challenge them until they are clear and make sense.
  • You are curious about insights from our user research team and customer facing departments to understand the needs of our users and customers and make sure our solutions fit their needs.
  • You have experience with how digital products are built in an agile environment and a larger organization.
  • You have a good technical understanding, attention to detail and have collaborated with software development teams.
  • You have experience in writing clear acceptance criteria and in slicing larger chunks of work into plannable tickets. If you have experience in using Jira and Confluence it’s a plus.
  • You are a clear communicator and you understand how to establish a trustful collaboration with the teams as well as partners and stakeholders.
  • You are fluent in English and ideally also speak German.
  • You value honesty and open feedback and you are pleasure to work with.

An inspiring environment
