Wink, based in Dallas, Texas, is on a mission to eliminate identity theft and payments fraud on the internet while enhancing user convenience and speed for e-commerce transactions.

What are we looking for? Scrum Leader / Business Analyst

We are looking for a Scrum Leader / Business Analyst to liaise between the technical team and business team in our software development process. You will serve as the go-to person for applying scrum to produce high-quality work. Scrum Leader / Business Analyst duties include managing timelines, resolving problems, and helping to create self-organizing teams that are flexible and fully productive during sprints.

As the Scrum Leader/ Business Analyst, you will partner with product owner and product manager of both aspects of the Wink platform (Wink Biometric Authentication and Wink Payments Orchestration).

  • Most App Developers are looking to adopt a “passwordless” secure authentication methodology for their consumers to login and use their services. While other products like Login by Apple/Facebook/Google help in this, these solutions are not truly passwordless. Wink Login will be industry’s first truly passwordless login product where a user’s face is their username and their voice alongside a secure device fingerprint is their password.
  • Once a user’s Wink login is established, it can be tied to user’s payment accounts (credit cards, bank accounts, crypto wallets etc.). This would then allow the user to simply checkout from an e-commerce transaction by simply authenticating via their face and voice. Wink Payments platform will be industry’s first payments platform allowing merchants to deploy a “Checkout by Camera” solution in their e-commerce websites.

You will need to be able to think fast to help solve problems. Keen communication skills are required, as well as proven time management, organization skills and a deep understanding of software development. In this role, you will be communicating with the development and scrum teams, product owner and executive leadership.

Responsibilities for Scrum Leader / Business Analyst

  • Work with Product team to understand product roadmap and business requirements and be able to translate them into complete and development ready user stories
  • Break user stories into manageable sizes for the development teams to deliver during 2-week sprints
  • Manage the project tracking/change management process using Agile methodologies
  • Help the project meet schedule, business and budget objectives
  • Provide leadership assistance to other team members in planning, analysis, and execution of plans
  • Manage each project’s scope and timeline
  • Coordinate sprints, retrospective meetings and daily stand-ups
  • Facilitate internal communication and effective collaboration
  • Work with product owners to handle backlogs and new requests
  • Resolve conflicts and remove obstacles that occur
  • Help teams implement changes effectively
  • Ensure deliverables are up to quality standards at the end of each sprint
  • Help build a productive environment where team members ‘own’ the product and enjoy working on it

Qualifications for Scrum Leader / Business Analyst:

  • Experience in a scrum master role
  • Familiarity with software development
  • Knowledge of Scrum techniques and artifacts (such as definition of done, user stories, automated testing, backlog refinement)
  • Experience writing business and technical requirements
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Problem-solving and conflict-resolution ability
  • Outstanding organizational skills
  • Degree in Computer Science, Business or similar field
  • Scrum master certification is a plus

Experience and Knowledge needed:

  • Deep understanding of Digital Identity and Authentication space
  • Experience building APIs a plus
  • Knowledge of Industry standards such as FIDO, OpenID, OAUTH a plus
  • Experience with building and taking to market a SaaS based Enterprise product, preferably for companies like Okta, ForgeRock, LoginRadius, Gemalto (Thales), G&D, Sagem, Jumio, OnFido, Socure, etc.
  • Experience with Payments ecosystem a plus but not a must-have
