Job Description

Senior Business Systems Analyst

Boston, MA


Do you have a passion for internal process improvement, especially in a fast-growing, highly technical environment?  Wayfair IT’s Technology Experience function is hiring a Senior Business Systems Analyst to assess internal processes and drive end-to-end improvements across a wide range of cross-functional teams and technologies.

Because this role is embedded within the Technology Experience team, there’s a unique and important focus on end user experience and feedback.  The overall goal is to ensure that all employees have a positive, productive, and effective interaction with IT. Accomplishing this with scalable and effective processes is crucial to IT’s ability to grow with the rest of the organization.

As the IT organization’s Senior BSA, you’ll be responsible for using a combination of user feedback, data across a variety of sources (including SQL, ServiceNow, surveys, and other platforms), and input from Wayfair’s IT team to identify opportunities where we need to significantly update our processes to achieve a better experience for users and IT professionals alike.  One example opportunity is to drive improvements across our new hire IT Onboarding experience: How do we assign and provision assets more quickly? How do we get users logged in and up-to-speed on platforms easily? How do we handle very large groups of new hires? Where can we eliminate unnecessary steps in the process?

Responsibilities Include:

  • Partnering with multiple cross-functional teams (within and outside of Wayfair IT) to understand their role in key processes
  • Leveraging data to identify opportunities for maximum improvement to IT efficiency and end user experience
  • Applying broad technical knowledge in conversations with IT leaders to push on existing technical solutions
  • Using a keen and practiced project management skill set to scope projects, drive forward multiple project partners, communicate status clearly and consistently, and push these efforts through to completion
  • Proposing enhancements and extensions to existing applications to improve usability
  • Sharing and promoting ITSM best practices to help It as an organization scale across all processes and efforts
  • Connecting regularly with end users (employees outside of IT) through a variety of means, including focus groups, data, and personal internal network
  • Working with senior leaders, always exhibiting polish, professionalism, and persuasive communication

Required Experience:

  • Driving change in a large enterprise environment
  • Experience working across many cross-functional teams
  • Proven track record of data-driven decision-making
  • Working knowledge of Windows and/or Mac OS’s
  • Experience working with virtual collaboration tools
  • Direct experience with stakeholder management from requirements gathering to UAT to post-production testing and close-out of projects

Nice to have:

  • Experience with ServiceNow
  • Experience with SQL
  • Experience with G Suite applications
  • Familiarity with HTML5 and CSS
  • Familiarity with Powershell
  • Management experience
  • Experience with APIs
