Job Description :
Position: API Business Analyst

Location :: Memphis TN.

Position Description:
The role is really more of a business analyst for API’s, essentially acting as a liaison between the business (product) and the dev team – creating user stories, identifying solutions based on those requests, documentation, etc. for our web and mobile API’s as we attempt to streamline them and make them more uniform.
We are not looking for someone who can develop API’s but someone with a deeper understanding of what it is that we are building and who provides a level of critical thinking needed to identify potential issues.
We have people with a development background, QA background, and BA background in our group now, so we are pretty open on the job experience…they just MUST have solid understandings of API’s (what they do, why they are used, how they are used, the technology used to create them, etc…)
Requirements include:
3-5+ years of IT experience (preferably in the digital space)
In-depth knowledge of APIs (open architecture services) and their role in mobile applications, including the use of JSON, XML, GraphQL & Swagger
Strong knowledge and understanding of mobile, web, iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices and operating systems
Experience working in agile environments with writing user stories defect management tools, change request creations, release management and maintenance planning
Comfortable with Jira, Confluence, Technical Documentation
