  • The ability to work with an analytical mindset and focus on quality software development principles and experience writing and analysing complex technical documentation for operational procedures.
  • Strong business skills – even though this is a technical position, the candidate must be very “business savvy” – ability to comfortably interact with end users on business operations will be highly valued.
