BUSINESS ANALYST with UI Experience
I am an enterprising technology leader with a broad experience base who adapts easily to new environments and diverse project types. I enjoy working in multidisciplinary situations where I get to learn the needs and perspectives of different stakeholders, and bridge the gap between them. I've been known for focused listening when gathering requirements and a strong sense of collaboration when developing solutions.
I am seeking a leadership position in defining user experience (UX) oriented information systems and software products. I want to leverage my background in hands-on development while liaising with stakeholders to:
1) deduce their problems and opportunities,
2) analyze the solution requirements,
3) work with development teams to see them through to completion, and
4) socialize the end solution throughout the organization so that it is well received.
