Software Business Analyst (27187)

Central Cambridge
to c£65,000 DoE + Benefits

Providing product ownership within a small software team

This centrally based Cambridge company provides integrated Enterprise software suites used for energy commodity tracking. Their clients operate in markets across the UK and Europe. By using their software platforms, customers have insight and detailed understanding of their own operations and processes.

As the company grows, they are looking to recruit a Software Business Analyst to join them. The role would be to fulfil product ownership responsibilities within one of their multidisciplinary software teams. These teams are highly collaborative and culturally have an open view on how to approach problems. Well-engineered trumps speed when it comes to their software development practices.

Software Business Analysts will sit within the development team and act as the voice of the customer. This ensures that products that are developed serve customer needs and are not fanciful features. To do this, the Software Business Analyst will work closely with operations teams and market users.


  • Relevant experience working as a business analyst / product owner within a B2B software product company. Ideally within the energy sector although other utility areas would be considered.
  • Strong business analysis skills through empathy for end users and understanding of market influences..
  • Good familiarity of agile processes for software development.

Preference would be for someone to have had prior experience in software development (ideally with VB, C# or C++ technologies). The role is hybrid, and interested candidates should be prepared to be in the office 2-3 days per week. Parking is available onsite, and public transport (bus and train) links are close by.

Interested candidates need to be based in Cambridge or surroundings, or be open to relocate to this area. Further, candidates need to have full rights to work in the UK. Time-restricted or dependent visa holders will not be considered. The company supports careers with many people staying 5+ years with the company. They offer a suite of benefits including private health care and access to EAP.
