Systems / Requirements Analyst Job in Kenya

Systems / Requirements Analyst

Number of Positions: 1

Job Description / Responsibilities: A systems / requirements analyst is a crucial individual in the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

The main role of a requirements analyst is to gather software requirements for brand new systems that the company plans to develop and deploy, or to collect such requirements for components of existing software whose functionality the company plans to modify and/or extend.

The systems analyst will act as an intermediary between system stakeholders (e.g., end-users of the system and the project manager) and software developers. 


By effectively communicating with system stakeholders, researching and applying his/her own business and technical knowledge, the systems analyst will produce a systems requirements specification by identifying, prioritizing and documenting the user interface and technical requirements of an application’s functionality and error handling. 
The systems requirements specification will then be presented to software developers for implementation. 
This specification is a documentation of how the system will look (user interface) and work (technical functionality), and it may consist of diagrams, graphical representations, use cases, storyboards, etc.

After the system is implemented by the software developers, the systems analyst will also be responsible for testing the system and ensuring that it conforms to his/her requirements specification. 

Any system errors arising from the tests are presented to the developers for rectification.
