Business Analyst

Job Description

At Codelation, we turn standout ideas into outstanding startups. Headquartered in Fargo, ND, we are a rapidly growing company that loves to partner with entrepreneurs when they’re ready to take a product concept and turn it into a business people can’t live without. 

 

Also, we’re super nerds who love building cool tech that makes a difference for our clients’ business and the people they serve. 

 

We are working at maximum speed as our company continues to see huge growth in client acquisition and retention. As a result, we’ve found ourselves in need of a Business Analyst who can take the lead in gathering, organizing, reporting and training high-level leaders in business processes that will take their companies to the next level. In addition, the Business Analyst at Codelation will have a strong background in sales and customer service.

 

The ideal candidate will be at the head of the table when it comes to helping our clients grow and succeed. You’ll bridge the gap between our dev teams and our clients so everyone is speaking the same language, and understands where we are in the life cycle of a project. Part technical analyst, part client whisperer, you are a wooer and a wave-maker. This position would work very closely with the development team. 

 

We believe that those in positions of leadership in our customers’ companies are there for a reason. We work hard to empower these leaders and their teams to make the best possible decisions to advance their business goals. This means we are stewards of their resources, communicate well, and are zealous for their success. It also means that we present fact-based, data-driven, timely information to help them make the best possible choices for the direction of their custom solution and their business.

 

Codelation’s SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) management and discovery processes are second to none. The first few steps in our process revolve around our client interview approach and our ability to gather and communicate effectively the business requirements between the development team and the customer. The business analyst plays an integral part in this step. 

The goals are:

  1. To advance our reputation with our customers and in the market that we make custom software development process a highly predictable, highly successful endeavor
  2. To eliminate or greatly diminish surprises in delivery
  3. To significantly reduce the time/effort required to produce quality software deliverables
  4. To accurately predict and gather requirements for future phases
  5. To make projects generally easier and more enjoyable for all team members
  6. To ensure the development team and the supporting SDLC roles are able to thoroughly understand and execute upon  the requirements
