About the Opportunity Is analysis and process improvement in your DNA? Do you understand how to transform business needs into technical requirements? Do flowcharts make you happy? If this sounds like you, we can't wait to meet you. What You Can Expect As a Business Analyst, you'll join our team of intellectual heavyweights who know the right questions to ask to clearly understand a project's requirements. You'll use your analytical powers to uncover business objectives, and then tap into your equally strong writing skills to clearly articulate requirements and technical solution details. You're both business focused and tech savvy, so eliciting requirements from business and IT users is a breeze and you're a natural at facilitating requirements gathering sessions. Once the requirements have been defined, you create accurate and detailed requirements specifications (Use Case, User Interface specifications, Activity Diagrams) which show the types of systems that are needed to meet business requirements. When it comes to process improvement discussions, you're able to analyze and define processes of a business including "To Be" and "As Is". Last but not least, when the project is complete you come back into play with a keen eye for quality assurance: designing and executing test scripts and scenarios to ensure the system meets the functional requirements. To keep at the top of your field, you'll remain current on delivery methodologies, industry, and technology trends via continuous learning opportunities and professional development involvement.
