Would you like to be part of a successful and ambitious technology company where you can influence and improve the way our software is developed? This is a great opportunity to get in to an established software development team and take a lead role in the design, delivery and support of a growing number of software projects.

Our clients specialise in bespoke Line of Business applications delivered through a web browser and specifically look for software projects that have a significant design and analysis requirement where they can take a customer's vision and turn it into an application.

Our CLIENTS are looking for an addition to their Business Analyst Team to increase our capacity to meet a growing demand for bespoke software projects.

Our clients have also recently taken on running a software program to deliver a D2C and B2B suite of software products and they need additional BA resource to manage and drive this project (Experience launching software products or apps would be looked on favourably but is not essential).

Business Analysts are all given ownership of specific software projects and expected to get involved with the following:
??? Product design - working with our clients to capture their vision and ideas and turn that into a functional specification
??? Development - ensuring that the functional specification is correctly translated into a technical design by our development team and then acting as a single point of contact for them throughout the delivery phase
??? Testing - coordinating and participating in the testing process
??? Release and handover - managing the release process and handover of the application to both our client and internal support team
??? Support - 2nd line triaging support requests
??? Product lifecycle - managing the ongoing support and continued development of a live application

This role would suit a driven graduate with an interest in technology systems and business - the role has a great deal of scope to grow as part of a small team, with immediate immersion in all areas of the development process.

Experience Required

??? A graduate with a 2:1 or above degree and 5 years' experience working in industry
??? Experience and a proven track record of business analysis and gathering requirements
??? Competent in writing functional specifications, story boards, use cases and wire framing.
??? Excellent analytical / problem solving and research skills
??? Effective written and verbal communication and influencing skills with ability to facilitate workshops
??? Ability to work effectively independently and lead others during projects
??? Ability to build strong and supportive working relationships
??? An understanding of database and system design
??? Ability to analyse and compare business solutions that balance technical capability, cost and time, against business need
Desirable
??? Experience of process definition, re-engineering and impact analysis
??? Experience of managing the full software development lifecycle using waterfall, Scrum and agile approaches
??? Experience launching a mobile app through the apple store
??? Experience launching and supporting a software product
??? An understanding of the Microsoft Azure IAAS platform
