 About us

NZ Transport Agency Corporate Technology is a team of experts responsible for delivering technology the business uses every day to do their work.  

The team is in the process of reinventing itself into a modern, responsive, client-centred technology team. The transition to product led, virtual Agile teams co-designing with internal clients will transform the way technology works with the business. A DevOps approach will also ensure there is a seamless transition from product design to implementation to ongoing support and maintenance.  

Our team helps keep the rest of the business moving, so it's important you have highly developed collaboration and relationship building skills.

The role

Working closely with others - you will provide support to the product team to ensure business objectives are met. You will do this through engagement and collaboration with internal clients to meet their business process change needs. This could be either a technology or non-technology change.

The Product Analyst role is similar to a business analyst; you will provide analysis support throughout the lifecycle for the products and systems that the Technology group support. 

We have 2 roles available in our Product Analyst team, at Product Analyst and/or Senior Product Analyst level.  As one of our Product Analysts you will be involved in change primarily dealing with the systems and products which we support.  As a Senior, you will work on project-based change initiatives that are business led, where there is a strong focus on stakeholder management. You will support our Engineering and Operations teams as we move towards an agile/DevOps technology shop.

We are looking for motivated individuals who are strong advocates for good practice and are comfortable in a client relationship/advisory role.  Being a strong communicator and a willing contributor will be the key to your success in this role.

What you will bring 

To be successful in this role, you will bring:

  • Significant experience as a business analyst and working in co-located environments
  • Excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills
  • Strong collaboration experience and the ability to influence without authority
  • Proven experience in design thinking and able to translate business needs into technology solutions
  • Experience in building technical understanding of business problems
