Business Analyst

Position Overview

Do you like to analyze problems? Do you like to see new systems and business processes become a reality? We need experienced business analysts to help us develop services to support the needs of the global Bible Translation Movement.

Inaccurate requirements gathering is an often-cited reason behind project failure. Our projects result in technology and services that help those involved in language development and Bible translation focus on their work. You will work with customers to understand their pain and help to plot a course to their desired future. You will help them determine what they aim to achieve while identifying any incompatibilities that might exist between expectations and reality. You could be the one to help take our organization to a new level of effectiveness.

We are a nonprofit organization committed to serving language communities worldwide. God is doing amazing things through Bible translation and language development. You could join in what God is doing by using your business analysis skills to make an eternal impact: join the movement as a Business Analyst!
