Job description

Our development team is growing! We are currently hiring a technical business analyst for one of our architectural teams. Your keen eye for details will keep our EAM software of the highest standard.

IFS Ultimo´s SaaS enterprise asset management solution helps companies to manage their assets, plan maintenance, control costs and help creating a safe and healthy work environment. To continue our leading position in the market it is important that our product is according to the customer requirements, up to date and working flawlessly.  

Job description Technical Business Analyst 

As a Business Analyst, you work together with a multidisciplinary development team of about six to ten people. For this role you will become part of one of our architectural development teams. Product Development works according to the Scrum methodology. The requirements, both IFS Ultimo's and our customers', are translated into backlog items in Jira. In two-week sprints, the team works on these items to translate them into working functionalities. This is how we create new modules, develop new options, or improve existing functionality. Because we work according to the CI/CD principle, the functionality can be rolled out to customers very quickly and we also can get feedback very quickly. 

As a Business Analyst, you are the one to answer functional or technical questions. One of the most important tasks of the Business Analyst is helping to get the backlog ready. This means that, together with the Product Owner, you keep a critical eye on the direction the product is going, you investigate all sorts of matters, and use this to translate the rough ideas into concrete, achievable backlog items. 

The tasks and responsibilities of a Business Analyst: 

  • Identifying and analysing requirements (wishes and demands) from the business and translating these into functionality in IFS Ultimo. 
  • Giving accurate and detailed answers to questions in the development team. 
  • Refining the user stories to reach backlog items that are ready. 
  • Actively sharing knowledge with colleagues and channel partners. 
  • Intake of R&D cases: from analysing and reproducing to providing instructions or preparing a case so that it can be taken up by the development team.
