A Day in the Life of a Business Analyst
That’s Nice, But What’s the Job?
The role of Solutions Analyst (aka Business Analyst) takes on a different meaning in every company. Here at DriveTime, the emphasis is on enabling “Business” value through IT solutions. On a daily basis, you are responsible for eliciting requirements on updates and enhancements to DriveTime applications, but this role is so much more than requirements writing. From API integrations and database structures to page layouts and built-from-scratch applications, you are an expert at digging in and understanding how systems work together. In business meetings you are the technical voice who can speak to the systems impact. In discussions with developers, you are the voice of the business advocating for your customer. You really get the big picture and business goal, and are adept at translating that into the details needed for your team to make the goal a reality. You play an integral, collaborative role in feature development, from business ask through user acceptance testing and deployment.

Meet the DriveTime Crew!
We’re a team of innovators and engineers, movers and shakers, morning people and night owls, dreamers and believers, techies and talkers. But most of all we are a family. At DriveTime we’re fueled by the success of our employees as much as we are by the loyalty of our customers.
Not everyone gets to say that they get to go work with their friends every day, but I do. The culture at Drivetime is created first and foremost by the people you get to work with everyday. It’s what makes it possible for us to collaborate and be as open as we are because we aren’t just co-workers, were friends too. I think this is what allows everyone to have an impact on the organization. Our flat hierarchy and collaborative environment allow everyone to express their voice and drive change.
I love getting the people going. So whether it's getting everyone together for a happy hour, organizing a group trip for a weekend getaway or pulling together a weekend group workout session, I enjoy being constantly surrounded by people.
