About the Job:
Our Business Analyst plays an important role as the “glue” in our project team. As our primary in-house client advocate, the Business Analyst works closely with the client stakeholders and SMEs to lead and facilitate discussions in order to understand the client’s needs and turn them into requirements. Once the requirements are captured, the Business Analyst will work closely with our engagement team (project manager, engagement manager, and technical lead) to help design and develop a solution to meet the client’s requirements. Throughout the life of the project, the Business Analyst’s primary responsibility is to represent the client and ensure all deliverables are in line with the project vision. This involves working with virtually every member of the project team, both internal and client facing, to facilitate communication, review the quality of deliverables, and train various team members on how to use the new system.
Is this job for you?
To be successful as a Business Analyst, you should be a self-driven and curious person with great attention to detail. Since the Business Analyst role is the “glue” for all projects, strong verbal and written communication skills are a must as well as the ability to work with a vast array of project team members. More importantly, one must have an interest in creative problem solving, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn. Ultimately, a top-performing Business Analyst should be able to quickly breakdown and understand varying business processes, help to identify gaps or areas for improvement in those processes, and then effectively translate those into requirements via visual and written documentation. Because our clients span a wide range of industries and organizational styles, no two projects are exactly the same. Our Business Analysts should have the ability to follow our standard project processes and adjust those processes on the fly to meet the needs of the client or project. The ideal candidate for this position would have at least 5 years work experience as a Business Analyst or equivalent role.
