Are you the person we’re looking for?

 

Big picture thinker with laser focus. You have a unique ability to see both the forest and the trees. It’s what sets you apart from the rest. You start with a good understanding of the broader strategy, zoom in to assess one particular aspect of that strategy, and then zoom back out to see how changes to that particular area will affect the broader process.

Expert relationship cultivator. Product managers think you’re a good partner -- because you are. Developers feel you respect their opinions -- because you do. You’re a true people person, a natural collaborator, and a highly sought-after resource.

Quality orientation. You have proven success at writing quality user stories and analysis deliverables through the application of established criteria like INVEST and SMART. Your work is thoughtful, timely and valuable to the team.

 Resourcefulness and application. At Aptos, we have a pioneering spirit -- when we have questions, we find answers; when we’re faced with challenges, we find solutions. We turn to a variety of resources, including our own colleagues, our professional network, the Internet, articles and books -- whatever helps us get the job done. But’s it’s not just about using a variety of resources to gain knowledge -- it’s also about applying that knowledge to other areas of the job or business where it might make sense.

 

Here’s what will give you an edge…

 

Passion. We know it when we see it. Passion is not about saying how much you love what you do in your most excited voice. Passion is revealed in your truest self. It’s about what you’ve accomplished; how you want to grow; the ideas you have; your philosophies. It’s demonstrating through your words and your actions that you truly believe in what you do -- and where you work. That it matters to you. And that’s pretty cool.

Initiative. You don’t wait around for things to happen or for your manager to tell you what to do. You’re not only proactive about completing your own work, but when you sense the need to introduce an idea that will benefit the team or the organization -- even if it’s outside your scope of work -- you take it on and own it. That also goes back to having a pioneering spirit.

Related experience. Of course, prior experience in business analysis would be ideal, as would contributions to or active participation in IIBA, PMI, the Agile Alliance or other related organizations and certifications. Showing you have passion and commitment for the profession really makes a difference to us.
