So when we say we are looking for a Business Analyst, yes, you will design and lead analysis efforts and effectively interface with customers, but we’re also looking for you to provide your creative input on how to build better products and re-engineer business processes for the benefit of both the end-users and our clients’ organizations.
What you might do on any given day:
- Design & lead client/ end-user analysis strategies to identify needs and opportunities for improvement in existing processes and systems.

- Facilitate meetings, workshops, and discussions with our team and clients to help us find balance between user wants, client needs, technical level of effort, and timelines.
- Identify, understand & design approaches to increase team knowledge of the customer experience, and serve as a champion for voice of our clients and their end users.
We’re a small team so there will be a lot of getting-it-done without worrying about who is “supposed” to do it. So in addition to bringing your business analysis talents to the table, you will also help your team with other types of work, such as:
- Project Management - Producing reports & updates, and presenting in strategic team and client meetings.
- Business Development - Contribute to scoping and analysis activities to identify client requirements and offer insights on how we could take a proposal further.
