It's always a hard problem, especially when management want
to show the possibility of an upward path. I've been:
"Hey, you!"
Person who can type
Technical writer
Senior technical writer
Principal technical writer
Senior principal technical writer
Lead technical writer
Documentation engineer
"Just what do you do around here?"

Others among us have had job titles equally as exciting,
and I doubt any of them will actually turn out to be what
your new boss wants. I might suggest Prestidigitator or
Documentationalist as further possibilities. Something
with "Analyst" in the title might be good, but don't let
them abbreviate it.
