The role of the Senior Programmer Analyst demands expertise in business and specialist technical skills. This combination is essential to a role that ensures that technical builds are developed in line with business requirements, and employers in this field are seeking highly specialised knowledge to make the most of this position within their company.
Whether you’re looking for a challenging new position or hoping to develop your role within your existing company, it helps to know exactly what is required for the roles you are interested in. Knowing your market and being able to draw comparisons between your own skills and those of others will put you ahead of the game and increase the likelihood of a positive outcome for you.
Qualifications. Qualifications are, of course, highly relevant to a position such as this, but practical experience is also very desirable. To apply for a position like this, you should have a degree or certificate in computer science or IT, as well as a background in app analysis.
Soft skills. This sort of role brings many challenges, and a proven track record of good communication skills and problem solving will be desirable. Whatever role you are applying for, the business you hope to work for will need to be convinced that you will be an asset to the team and fit in with other employees.
Experience of strategic business development. A solid understanding of systems and the software that can enhance business operations is very valuable, and experience of training others will be an asset. You will be expected to participate in strategic business development, and these skills will demonstrate that you are competent and capable of doing so.
A positive approach. This is a pre-requisite for all industries, and is not specific to Senior Programmer Analysts: it is vital to make a positive impact with your CV and interview. Do not risk compromising your prospects with lazy grammar or an unprofessional appearance, and always aim to give more than is expected of you.
