Office Location:
 
Victoria, BC or Remote!

We’d love to have you join us at our HQ in beautiful Victoria, BC (once it’s safe to do so!) and would be delighted to provide relocation assistance. However, we are completely remote friendly - you can work from anywhere in Canada that suits you best. We only ask that you work in the Pacific time zone (PST.)

Level: 
Strong Junior/Intermediate/Senior - we are open to hiring a variety of levels for this role.

 
THE ROLE

In 2020, we were ranked as Canada’s 15th fastest growing company and we are looking for a talented Business Analyst to join our growing team. If you are looking to work toward a rewarding career as a Technical Consultant, Service Designer, or Technical Project Manager, we have a role that could be just the perfect fit. The role of an “Analyst” varies across each industry and even between companies. In fact, even the CIA has Analysts; this job won’t be nearly as dangerous as the CIA, but it will be more fun and equally as challenging.*
*Individual results may vary

Your main responsibility in this role is to work with our clients to formulate and solidify their product vision, and then turn that vision into concrete functional and technical project requirements. You will do this by conducting client-stakeholder meetings, facilitating user interviews, focus groups, and workshops, then using this feedback to create use cases, user stories, process models, and business requirements documentation for the client and development team's review.

You play a large role in formulating the technology road map for the product, including identifying and proposing technology solutions and ideas, which is why your background in software development, whether educational or through hands-on coding, comes in handy in this role. You are equally as comfortable working with our development teams as you are directing conversations with non-technical clients to explain requirements and strengthen their understanding of business and technical solutions. Business Analysts are the Swiss army knives within our software development teams: reliable, multi-talented, and everybody wishes they had a really good one.

 
KEY RESPONSIBILITIES
  • Generate project deliverables that guide or inform developers and clients during discovery and throughout the project lifecycle;
  • Conduct meetings and facilitate workshops to elicit both functional and technical requirements;
  • Document requirements, create use cases, user stories, and process models;
  • Conduct User Experience (UX) research;
  • Come up with fun nicknames for your other team members and cool-sounding code names for your projects;
  • Collaborate with other IT experts and address business and technical needs;
  • Support other team members' efforts including project managers or relationship managers in day-to-day operations for escalations, client calls and meetings, and questions around budget burn or project completion progress.
