CloudNC is hiring a

Business Analyst

London, United Kingdom
Who are CloudNC?

At CloudNC we are ambitiously and successfully developing deep technology that automates CNC Manufacturing. We have a factory running commercially to produce intricate and high-specification work for our clients which allows us to also tie in our software to a tangible, physical output.

The Role

We are searching for a Business Analyst to help us guide product development. As a valued member of our team you will be central to understanding the value of our products and their integration into the manufacturing industry.

You will develop a deep understanding of our products, the manufacturing businesses they are intended for; and the technical complexities of machining. You will spend time with key users to elaborate their needs and translate these into prioritised requirements for our product roadmaps. You will also work closely with domain experts to understand the challenges faced and how to overcome them; and closely with our engineering teams to ensure requirements and their business context are clearly understood.

The role is based in London and as a key communicator between software engineering, stakeholders, and subject matter experts, you will also spend time at our manufacturing facility in Chelmsford (travel expenses paid). Remote working is supported.

About You

You are a detail-focused collaborator looking for a challenge, with experience in Business Analysis, System Engineering, Product Owner/Manager, Lead Engineer or other product focussed role. You are equally comfortable quantifying business markets, mapping industry workflows and discussing technical details. You have experience in identifying business needs and translating these into technical requirements for implementation. You are an excellent communicator and have a strong background in managing the scope of a product across multiple releases and translating the scope into engineering tasks.

You are passionate about working with subject matter experts and software engineering teams and the opportunity to create something world-leading is too good to miss.

You may not have focused on manufacturing, but the idea of working with machines of jaw dropping power and sophistication excites you. You are capable of becoming intimately familiar with the business drivers of factories and opportunities for technology that maximises them.
