Contract Type
Full Time
Business Analyst required on an initial 3-month contract for a growing software company, with a strong chance of extension.

The company have recently spun-off from a larger organisation and are growing rapidly. They are based in very central offices and are soon to be moving to one of the best spaces in Edinburgh. This role has been bred out of pure growth and a positive response on their product.

They are looking for an experienced Business Analyst who has particularly strong Process Mapping skills and who has the ability to run workshops and support the product. They are an Agile business so a background in this would be a positive, but not a necessity.

It is a very fast paced organisation so having an understanding of start-ups would be great (but by no means essential) as well as knowing how larger companies run (I appreciate this may seem strange). The reason behind this is because they work alongside a number of larger businesses and having an understanding of how they operate would be hugely beneficial.

They are looking to get someone started on the week beginning 28th October with interviews conducting next week.

Key Skills and Experience:

** Working with key stakeholders to understand and document the 'as is' target operating model and identifying opportunities, risks and potential costs for improvement and alignment

** Process mapping and improvement, Six Sigma or similar LEAN practise would be advantageous

** Identification and documentation of the true processes

** Facilitating workshops with a broad range of types of participants

** Agile background

** Experience of working on Digital Product Development

** Experience of start-ups AND larger organisations would be beneficial
