  • As a BA at iQ you should have an in-depth knowledge of technology, process and methodology as well as an insatiable desire to learn new techniques and tools.

Qualifications:

It goes without question that you’re a great multi-tasker & have outstanding interpersonal skills.  You’re also a take-charge kind of person who asks lots of questions while having a positive attitude & lots of energy.  Here are some of the specifics:

  • 5+ years working in a professional services environment or within an industry vertical in a business systems planning role
