The purpose of the Product Analyst role is to research customer needs, requirements, and industry trends, take that data and distill it into actionable ideas for product development.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Make actionable recommendations about product development and backlog prioritization based on a deep understanding of customer journeys, usage data, market research, and the company growth strategy.

  • Document, analyze, and evaluate data with a customer-centric approach, generating detailed user stories which will be the basis for future software development by the Engineering team.

  • Work as a conduit between technical and non-technical stakeholders for the purposes of driving product development and optimization.

  • Collaborate with the development team and subject matter experts to establish the technical vision and analyze tradeoffs between usability and performance needs.

  • Proactively drive results-oriented product changes and improvements.

  • Support Product Strategy, User Experience, Architecture leads, and other team members in planning deliverables, defining scope, scheduling, and other aspects of product strategy.

OK, I'm interested is this the job for me?

We look for people who value agility, passion and teamwork; those who can bring fresh ideas to the table and want the opportunity to learn, grow, and expand their careers. Bring your aptitude and build upon what you do best for our customers, partners, team, and you.

Other qualities you will need to be a fit for this role include:

  • Bachelor's degree or 4 years of relevant experience in a SaaS or software development fields.

  • Preferably 2 - 4 years of experience working with large datasets to deliver business insights and recommendations (SaaS or Software Development experience preferred).

  • Strong analytical skills and a deep understanding of statistical and forecasting principles.

  • Professional experience with analyzing and documenting complex business processes, software development requirements, and taxonomies.

  • Strong and thorough understanding of how to interpret customer business needs and translate them into application and operational requirements.

  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and are comfortable working cross-functionally in a large organization.

  • You are an independent problem solver with a curious mind and have the ability to both focus on the details and to see the bigger picture.

  • You have excellent communication skills and can interact professionally with a diverse group, executives, managers, international team members, and subject matter experts.

  • Understanding of Microsoft 365/Teams/SharePoint/Dynamics CRM/ architecture, components, and configuration preferred.
