What you’ll do
In a few words…
A Product Analyst II is really like a detective. Your attention to detail and sharp observational skills help you understand and see what others can’t. Working in the analysis phase of the requirements/system development cycle, a product analyst consults with users to determine business requirements, identify operating procedures, evaluate existing or proposed systems, and prepare specifications from which programs will be written. Defining business processes is elementary to you, Detective Holmes.
The fundamentals for the job…
- You will create, update, enhance, or refine business requirements documents (BRDs).
- Create, update, enhance, or refine use cases and test cases
- Translate ideas into requirements (Hint: Google won’t help you here.)
- Lead User Acceptance Testing (UAT) efforts
- Talk the talk so you can gather project requirements with internal clients and technology teams.
- Assist other Product Analysts and Product Managers in defining and extensively documenting detailed requirements, use cases, and test cases.
- Help execute cross-functional projects.
- Analyze business solution options
- Understand the applications supported and their upstream/downstream impact
- Determine feasibility of business requirements and recommend changes to support business needs and processes.
- Evaluate current system processes and identify possible solution options for new functionality or modifications to existing functionality. (You’re always looking to improve stuff.)
- Work collaboratively with business partners, SMEs, Developers, and Testers to ensure a shared understanding of business requirements.
- Ensure that system solution options are thoroughly researched, analyzed and documented. (We know one can never research enough, but as long as it’s thorough...)
- Provide support to Quality Assurance on development of test approaches.
- Provide support to Applications Development through participation in Design Reviews.
- Create project estimates and resource plans for systems solutions.
What you’re made of
The bold requirements…
- Bachelor’s Degree (In lieu of a degree, equivalent relevant experience may be considered.)
- 3+ years of experience in Product Analysis, Business Analysis, and/or System Analysis.
- Computer proficiency. Your Microsoft Office Suite skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook) are Jedi level.
- Double plus points for knowledge of Healthcare, Pharmacy, and Pharmacy Benefit industries, Medicare Part D, and CMS regulations.
- You must be able to communicate effectively (read, write, meme, etc.) in English.
That something extra we´d love to see…
- Challenge Accepted: You love a challenge. In fact, you get bored if not challenged, and that’s good, because we will challenge you to be the best.
- Problem Solver: Your superpower is finding the root of a problem and growing beanstalks out of them. (Sort of.)
- Organization Guru: You crave organization like sugar, color-code everything, and messes make you crazy.
- Detailed: Nothing gets by you and you rarely forget a thing. When learning some new procedure, you’re the type to take notes. When everyone else is still lost, you’re already at the next steps. Others count on this skill of yours. Maybe due to your detailed nature, you are also exquisitely good at planning. You like to make plans and follow through, meticulously.
- Analytical and Critical Thinking: Obviously because this is an “analyst” position, but even if you weren’t applying, you’d still be trying to analyze why we write these the way we do and how they could be better.
