Business Analyst - Agile
Salary/Benefits: £40-50k + 10% bonus + flexibility
Tomatoes, asparagus, shaping processes, establishing best practice, really leading the BA function, working in a proper Agile environment, working towards becoming / being SCRUM Master, having real influence in the SDLC, the ability to affect change and a small aubergine.
Sounds like one heck of a shopping list but they’re the staples on every BAs shopping list … except maybe the Asparagus. Today is a supermarket sweep and they’re all on offer…
The team recently moved into a shiny new office fit for 120 people (they’re thinking big) and if all goes well they’re hoping they can fill up that space pretty-damn quick. They have a BA who grew into the role internally, but they really need someone with a few battle scars who’ll work with the existing BA to impact the SDLC, rally the Devs, Testers and Support teams.
Besides being an experienced Agile BA who can create user stories, functional / non-functional specifications, map requirements, documentation, etc. You’ll need to be able to deal with internal / external stakeholders big and small. You’ll need to be able to win people over in settings of different degrees of formality. One minute you could be giving a pep talk to the tech teams, taking a customer requirement or delivering a presentation to the board … you’ve got to be adaptable.
As for the company culture, they’re a tight knit, ambitious and customer focused business so it’s relaxed and friendly, but are driven and protective of the culture they’ve created. They would forgo a ‘stable genius’ who is hard to work with for a someone who really enjoys the job they do and has a positive impact on the team.
In the words of the Ops Manager – “If there was a choice between a BA with 10+ years’ experience but was a just ticking along, or a BA with just a few years under their belt but had a real spark, personality, knew their stuff and could command the respect of their peers – we’d prefer the latter”
The working hours will be just 35 hours per week with flexitime. It can be either of the following hours: 8am to 4pm OR 9am to 5pm OR 10am to 6pm.
There’s lots to talk about the company and role etc but if you like gist so far, shoot across your CV and I’ll be happy to run through things and answer all your questions.
