MassMutual Technology Business Management Analyst (TBMA) in Boston, Massachusetts

Systems Analyst – Technology Business Management (TBMA)

At MassMutual, we value both the flexibility that a remote work environment offers and the value that comes from connecting and collaborating in person with our colleagues. While most MassMutual employees have been working remotely due to the pandemic, we have begun encouraging our fully vaccinated employees to come to the office on a schedule that works for them.

Our future work environment will be one where the majority of our associates adopt a hybrid schedule — working some days in the office and some days remotely, balancing flexibility with in-person collaboration. One where each manager works with their teams to determine a schedule that meets the needs of customers, the team and the business. While the majority of our employees will follow this hybrid model, some of our roles will continue to be 100% on-site and others may be 100% remote, subject to business needs.

Recognized as a 2021 World’s Most Ethical Company by Ethisphere, MassMutual is guided by a single purpose: We help people secure their future and protect the ones they love. As a company, owned by our policyowners, we are defined by mutuality and our vision to put customers first. It’s more than our company structure – it’s our way of life.
