Business Analyst
ConsenSys is a venture production studio and the leading technology firm in blockchain globally. We deliver products, solutions and platforms built using blockchain technology to transform how business is done in complex network of buyers, suppliers and consumers.

Our teams are busy at work building the future of identity, financial markets, commerce, the music industry, security, and infrastructure, and more. To accomplish this we've built out a flat organizational structure which we call the ConsenSys Mesh: a network of individuals & teams working autonomously and towards the same goal. Our mission is to use these decentralized solutions to fundamentally reshape the economic, social, and political operating systems of the planet. If you are someone that thrives in a fast-paced environment where being self-directed, determined, and resilient are a requirement, we would love for you to join us.
About Solutions at ConsenSys:
ConsenSys Solutions combines expert business knowledge and leading agile processes to offer distinctive support for enterprise IT enablement. You will be joining a team of leading blockchain and enterprise experts to deliver solutions for Fortune 500 level organizations.
The Role
The business analyst will play an integral part in supporting the successful outcomes of all Enterprise activities and first and foremost project delivery. This person will be responsible for translating a set of business needs/requirements and transforming them into high fidelity deliverables. In addition this person might also be involved in business development presentations, business planning, fundraising decks, and training material.

We are looking for someone with 3 - 5 years of experience as either as an analyst/associate in management consultant, investment banking or a similar role at a software company, preferably with enterprise technology.

From a technology standpoint, the business analyst will work closely with the Solutions team to design and visualize decentralized systems, process flows, and reference diagrams and tailor them depending on the specific use case.

From a research standpoint, the business analyst/associate must be proficient at conducting market research, compiling / modeling data, and citing sources.

A day in the life of a business analyst/associate will vary. One day you could be joining the head of business development to do discovery with one of the world's largest banks. The next day you may be in crunch mode preparing a client deliverable. The right candidate will take on each new project with enthusiasm.

The first project for the new BA will be an institutional trading and settlement platform based in Singapore. Experience of one or both of these processes in an investment bank or market infrastructure organization will be invaluable.

Responsibilities:
This person should be proficient with producing the following deliverables and very conversant in both prose (doc) and storyboarding (slide) formats, with a particular emphasis on client management and winning business:

  • Participate in the QA process by developing clear, specific, and testable acceptance criteria and performing hand-off to QA
  • Participate in backlog management and maintain an emphasis on user experience and specifications
