    • Demonstrate the confidence to ask questions, dig out details – often the BA is the person who knows the least in the room, but must still be able to flush out requirements/identify missing links.
    • Work to get up to speed quickly.  Our clients environment is complex and it will take time/effort to absorb enough details to add value.  BA needs to be passionate about learning and up for this challenge.

    • Ability to align business/technical objectives and facilitate a shared understanding of the problem at hand
    • Evaluate and critically consider multiple options before helping the team settle on a solution
    • Pride yourself on your documentation/ business writing skills and have a keen ability to build clear and concise BRD's and clearly articulate the business asks
    • Desire to dive into the complexity of our business and navigate both relationships and process
    • Open to constructive feedback and learning from an experienced team
    • Commitment - Their goal is to build expertise and knowledge in the team that can be leveraged for the long term
