In our drive to provide our customers with a true end-to-end offer, our multidisciplinary agile teams play an important role. From the initial product strategy to final delivery, they are involved in every stage of engagement with our clients. Being knowledgeable, driven and passionate about improving everyday, is what drives them among with a strong sense of autonomy and purpose.

Within these teams, business analysts are key to understand the detailed wishes of our clients to translate them to clearly defined requirements. These requirements finally result in clearly structured user stories for the developers to start working on. The business analyst role has a strong engagement factor when it comes to asking “why” over and over again, to drill down the true problem behind an initial requirement.

Responsibilities

  • Engage with the product owner (from our client) to get a deep understanding of the scope of the product and to assess dependencies and risks at an early stage;  
  • Analyse data models and IT landscapes from a global perspective to be able to discuss integrations and dependencies with the tech lead;
  • Engage with stakeholders to specify requirements;
  • Engage with IT and data departments to discuss the specifications;
  • Engage with end customers to validate hypotheses;
  • Break down the specifications of the requirements into user stories and acceptance criteria and update these in collaboration tools e.g. JIRA and Confluence;
  • Lead role in refinement sessions to discuss and optimize user stories;
  • During development sprints, be closely involved with the team to answer any questions;
  • Work together with testers and business owners to prepare User Acceptance Testing;
  • Depending on the client project, presence at the client premises is required from time to time during the analysis phase.
