Business Analyst

As a Business Analyst, you will be responsible for collaborating with senior team members who have deep experience in development, architecture, software testing, and product development. In addition, the features built by this team will be consumed by other teams within the organization. As a result, the ability to work independently and learn quickly on the job are key criteria that will enable success. The focus of the scrum team is on growing the features and APIs related to Claims processing. Experience in Claims processing and Claims Billing would be deeply valuable.

  • Validate that business requirements are satisfied, in particular through collaboration with the QA analysts
  • Work with Scrum team members to determine implementation trade-offs that improve value and reduce cost while respecting the business requirements
  • Answer questions raised by business users
  • Assist with application and user acceptance test plan creation and execution
  • Provide timely/accurate project status for analysis tasks

What you'll need:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or related field (equivalent work experience may be considered)
