Senior Solutions Analyst

Maana is looking for creative, enthusiastic, think-outside-the-box individuals to make a positive impact on our rapidly growing company. If you are a team player who thrives in a fast-paced environment and loves working on challenging problems, please read on!

The Senior Solutions Analyst will be responsible for working directly with customers to understand and analyze their problem, working with a Solutions Architect to define the optimal solution, managing the solution through development and implementation, and maintaining a relationship with the customer by providing updates and walkthroughs as needed.

Throughout the solution development process, the Senior Solutions Analyst will need to work with multiple internal teams (engineering, data science, etc…) to ensure that the project deliverables are understood, and are completed on time, while meeting/exceeding expectations of the customer.

The Senior Solutions Analyst is expected to own the project relationship with one of our clients with minimal supervision. This encompasses managing multiple projects simultaneously for that customer (up to 3 at the same time), while working with them to articulate and capture how these projects could be taken further, how they could connect where possible, and how to move them into production level deployments.

Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Running an engagement workshop to identify a customer’s business problem and decompose it into the Maana Knowledge Model framework.
  • Capturing end user experience and creating initial mockups of that experience.
  • Working with Customer Solutions teams to ensure that a project deliverables are on track
  • Identification of follow-on efforts that can leverage the Knowledge Model’s developed in past customer projects.
  • Provide feedback to product management about the successes and failures in the field.
  • Serving as a mentor/coach.
  • Helping develop team best practices.
