  • The successful Business Analyst will demonstrate keen problem-solving skills, experience working across the SDLC (solution delivery lifecycle) and be familiar with laboratory processes.
  • Experience of driving requirements gathering, solutioning to drive efficiencies in end-to-end laboratory operations and the design/implementation of solutions is keenly sought, as is working in a customer-facing environment, identifying and documenting user stories, with knowledge of Computer Systems Validation (CSV) and the Solution Delivery Lifecycle (SDLC).
  • Finally a degree-educated background in a relevant discipline, along with strong interpersonal skills and demonstrated familiarity with the software development process (e.g. requirements gathering, analysis/design, development tools, release/version control, testing and deployment) would be highly preferred.
