Job Description

We are looking for a Technical Business Analyst to join a growing London based software company and take responsibility for facilitating the continuous improvement of their industry-leading software solutions.

The company is going from strength to strength and has seen significant growth over the past few years. As a result they need someone who can work closely with both technical and product teams as they look to evolve their technical solutions. This is a great opportunity to join a successful, forward thinking company, and fulfil a key role within their talented technical team.

The core focus of this position will be to perform business analysis on a range of projects relating to the continual development of core technology products. This will mean working on long term strategic projects as well as ad-hoc updates and change requests, and you will need to work on multiple tasks simultaneously and manage your priorities accordingly. You will be a key member of the project team, working closely with the technical lead to help devise technical solutions, and providing technical specifications for the development team.

You will be working in a complex, data heavy environment using Java and SQL technologies, so you will need a strong technical background, either gained through education or hands-on experience working in development. You will need to be comfortable with systems analysis, including assessing code and its structure, and all the layers and nuances involved. This is an all-encompassing BA role, so you will need to be as comfortable gathering requirements from a senior stakeholder as you are writing detailed technical spec for a development team.

To be considered for this role you will need strong commercial experience working as a Technical Business Analyst, and will ideally be from a software vendor or consultancy background. In addition we are looking for the following;

  • Strong core business analysis skills, including requirements gathering and writing technical specifications.
  • Solid technical skills, including knowledge of Java and SQL technologies, systems analysis skills, and ideally a hands-on background working as a software developer.
  • Excellent communication skills, including the ability to work with technical and non-technical stakeholders, and to communicate technical concepts and ideas.
  • Strong organisational skills, including the ability to deal with lots of technical requests, and to work under your own initiative.
  • Ideally a Computer Science degree (or equivalent).

We are looking for someone who is highly numerate, logical and analytical, with very strong problem solving skills and the ability to communicate this to others.

This is a great opportunity to join a company that is at the top of its game, and play a vital role in facilitating the continual evolution of their technical solutions. If this sounds of interest then we'd love to hear from you; please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
