SKILLS & EXPERTISE

We’re looking for tech-savvy analysts to join our Technology Practice. We want people who can work closely with our engineering and consulting teams to deliver the next generation of cutting-edge solutions with our clients.

We’re open to different types of backgrounds; we care most about the skills and attitude you can bring to the table. Maybe you are an experienced business or software analyst, or seeking a career change from product owner, software engineer, tester or some other kind of technology or target operating model specialist.

What kind of work will I do?

Capco consultants work on a wide variety of client challenges; consequently, we value intellectual flexibility and curiosity as highly as we do quality and rigour.

Our technical analysts play pivotal roles in helping our clients with problems, such as designing and executing dev-ops strategies, launching new API market offerings and mobile applications to improve market share, creating cloud native machine learning and data analytics services, and even building entirely new challenger banks root and branch.

Can you give me some example roles?

You could work as a member of a technical advisory team conducting research into products for a core banking solution, weighing that up against sizing of other build or integration options, working with architects and BAs to document requirements, drawing high level solutions, and building out plans and investment cases.

Another possibility is working closely with engineers, testers, and product owners delivering new products for our clients, helping with system analysis or definition of APIs, data and NFRs in an agile pod.

No two projects are the same, and we encourage our people to put their own stamp on their roles and take advantage of opportunities to learn and impress.

Skills and Experience

Professional experience is important. It is crucial that you share our appetite for new and emerging technologies and the ability to help our clients realise the opportunity that their adoption represents in dealing with today’s business challenges. From day one, your key skill will be to perceive new and better ways of doing things to give your clients a daring advantage.

Here’s what we expect:

Professional experience which could include:

  • Technical analyst / software analyst
  • Business analyst (especially with product development experience)
  • Data analyst
  • Software engineer / developer
  • QA / testing analyst or engineer
  • Product owner / manager
  • Exposure to working in agile and/or the product delivery lifecycle, with product, engineering, or software delivery professionals
  • Familiarity reading or writing requirements and design written in standards like BPMN or UML
  • Familiarity reading data or API specifications in formats like Swagger, YAML, or XML and JSON respectively
  • Intellectual curiosity and willingness to learn
  • Good communication skills and ability to present complex analysis in simple ways
  • Confidence in your ideas, with a problem-solving attitude, being innovative, and having a flexible working style
  • Experience working well with a multi-disciplinary team

Desirable but not mandatory:

  • Experience in coding, testing, or designing software as part of product/application build or in analysing data
  • Knowledge of emergent technologies (e.g., artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation, cloud, microservices, event streaming)
  • Experience in target operating model design, process design or optimisation, or other similar business re-architecting projects
