Technical Business Analyst: Identity and Access Management

Entersekt has always pushed the boundaries and challenged the way the world solves problems. Our solutions are aimed at bringing new features and experiences to the customers of financial institutions. We are looking for someone that is passionate about understanding and re-imagining how customers interact digitally with their bank to help us analyze and define the market and our future role in it.

The Role

This position will form part of the Entersekt business architecture function, which reports to the chief technology officer. Your role will be to leverage your knowledge of identity, access management and authentication to design our internal industry model for digital channels.

You will need to understand the products and tools used by financial institutions to design their identity and access management (IAM) solutions (for example, mobile experience platforms) as well as the relevant industry standards and protocols. Your role will be to define how our solutions will integrate into these platforms in a reusable way. You will need to translate our vision, and the new experiences and solutions we want to enable for financial institutions. You will design an IAM experience model that allows reuse while permitting exceptions.

The primary consumers of this model will be the engineering and product teams who will build out our product roadmap inside this business architecture, as well as our R&D team that will be exploring emerging trends and technologies. You will need to work with all these stakeholders to share your knowledge, and gather their input and requirements. Furthermore, you should engage with the various regions and solutions consultants to find new regional players and regulations to explore.

Your role will cover the wider fraud prevention and identity and access management industry, with an initial focus on authentication and access management. You should be passionate about exploring the various solution and industry movements, and monitor the market on an ongoing basis. You will also engage with the industry to inform and help shape Entersekt’s positioning in this space.

The ideal candidate

You have practical experience in integrating and working with IAM and/or fraud solutions, and a knack for systemic design and modelling solutions. You have decided to focus your career in IAM and fraud solutions, and become an industry leader in this space.

Your communication skills are excellent, and you naturally collaborate to find the right solution. You enjoy writing clear and accurate specifications and explaining them to stakeholders. You can hold your own with industry peers and get your position across effectively. Your work should be aimed at both business and technical stakeholders.
