The Business Analyst - CodeOps Manager plays a crucial role within Crowdbotics by analyzing Product Requirement Documents (PRDs) generated by the PRD AI tool.

The main goal of this role is to be able to synthesize insights on the data generated from the PRD AI tool. You will work closely with Customer Success teams to report findings that can help customers strategically invest in reusable code assets (modules), predict duplicate work, and identify common software needs across their organization.

Duplication Detection:

  • Analyze the output from PRD AI for potential areas of duplicate work across different divisions within the same company.
  • Seek out instances where users of the PRD AI tool may inadvertently generate PRDs with overlapping features or functionalities due to the siloed nature of large organizations.
  • Identify duplicates in features and functionalities, thereby preventing redundant development efforts and fostering a more unified approach to software development across the organization.

Communication and Coordination:

  • Communicate findings to the relevant stakeholders regarding the identified common features and potential areas of duplication
  • Coordinate with different divisions to inform them of the opportunities for module reuse and the areas where efforts may be duplicated.
  • Ensure that the software development process is as efficient and cohesive as possible, leveraging shared resources and knowledge.

Strategic Module Planning:

  • Contribute to the strategic planning of the software development lifecycle by using insights gained from PRD analysis.
  • Shape the future direction of software projects by advising on the creation of a modular development roadmap, ensuring they are built on a foundation of reusable and efficiently managed code modules.

Requirements:

  • 8+ years of experience in account management, or a similar role in a startup SaaS environment.
  • Background or degree in Business Administration, Computer Science, Information Systems, or a related field.
  • Proven experience as a Business Analyst, preferably with a focus on software development or product management.
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to identify patterns and trends in large sets of data.
  • Exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to present findings and recommendations clearly to audiences including executive-level audiences.
