Job Description

Business Analyst

Location: Boston/Greater Boston

Do you like sharing your expertise with others? Do you have a passion for Business Analysis?

Centric Consulting is hiring Business Analysts for our Boston office. Business Analysts are the important link on projects, helping bridge the gap between different teams while also making sure the clients' business problems and needs are understood.

This is a junior/mid level full-time/contract opportunity.

What You'll Do as a Business Analyst

You will have the ability to translate business vision into defined and prioritized stories for the team backlog.

You will have expertise in various business analysis methodologies, including data analysis, use case development, story writing, and user acceptance testing and product documentation.

You will have strong analytical skills with the ability to understand complex customer needs and translate them into stories with actionable acceptance criteria.

Your will create drafts of epics and stories to seed backlog in order to begin the refinement process.

You will participate in agile ceremonies such as daily stand-ups, sprint planning meetings, demos, and retrospectives.

You will mitigate impediments that may impact successful team completion of release/sprint goals.

You will have experience with Jira or similar Agile backlog management tool.

What You'll Bring

Creating unmatched experiences, for both clients and employees, is what we do. You should revel in doing the unexpected and extraordinary for others.

The fun part about consulting is that no two days are the same. You should have a learning mindset, ready to experience new ideas and situations regularly.

Consulting experience is strongly preferred. That said, you will also be considered if you have a strong industry background. We like to work in the communities we live in.

We want someone who likes to solve problems. Clients don't come to us when the problem is easy. You should enjoy taking on the hard stuff.

And because we work with clients, excellent communication skills are important - both written and verbal. Translating technical concepts into layman's terms is an essential skill.

Initiative is important. We don't hand hold - you should be comfortable working independently in an entrepreneurial environment. That said, collaboration is equally important. Our Boston team and other [technologists or consultants] at Centric will give you an amazing support system. You will lean on them daily.

Last, but not least, you will need to be an experienced Business Analyst. We are looking for people with a proven track record of working as a Business Analyst in a consulting environment. You must have experience with examining business systems and processes to identify user needs, document requirements, epics, and stories, and address operational issues.

Why Centric?

* Supportive environment - We expect a lot from our Business Analysts. But you won't be asked to do it alone. You will have the full support of the Boston office leadership and everyone at Centric. We love to help people succeed.
* Growth opportunities - As a mid-size firm, there is more flexibility when it comes to career paths. Figure out what you want to do, and we'll figure out how to get you there.
* Special culture - Hands down, the people are the best part of Centric. But you shouldn't take our word on it - check us out on Glassdoor, Facebook or Twitter to get a glimpse inside what makes us different.
* Prefer to contract?
* Contractor friendly environment - Contractors are an important part of our Centric family and we treat them as such. You will find that our policies and practices make it easy for you to contract with us.
* Benefits eligibility - As a W2T temporary employee, you are eligible for Centric's W2T benefits package which includes medical and dental coverage. We are also open to Corp to Corp arrangements (no benefits in that case, however).
* Full-time potential - Many of our full-time employees originally started as contractors. If that's something you are interested in, we can explore those options. That said, if you want to remain a contractor that's fine too. We are flexible!

Centric believes the best solutions come from diverse teams. We strive to have an environment where everyone has an opportunity to be successful regardless of their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, military or veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

About Centric Consulting

Centric is a management and technology consulting company that draws its talent from Tier 1 consulting organizations. Engage us and you will benefit from consultants who are experienced, resourceful and indeed passionate about the work they do, the clients they serve and the results they deliver. Our collective capabilities and experience enable us to improve your company's business performance in three critical areas: strategy, process and technology. And since we are committed to staffing local offices, we are typically minutes away from our clients by car instead of hours away by air. All of which amounts to a competent and preferable alternative to Tier 1 firms.
