What you’ll do
In a few words…
We’ve got something for the secret acronym lover in you… you could be our new BDA! What’s a BDA, you ask? And it’s not the British Dental Association. Or the Bada Bing Authority. Come on, try harder.
Geez. No wonder there’s a joke about Business Development Analysts being like waiters but without any of the tips. Just be glad we didn’t go with BAD instead.
In the role of Business Development Analyst you will create financial models, communicate with current or prospective clients, identify new business opportunities and industry trends.

That something extra we´d love to see…
- Adapter: A responsive climate-switcher who is highly productive in a fast-paced environment. A practical shape-shifter.
- Analytical: Values the power of context & enjoys examining the past. They get the present by over-analyzing events leading up to it. This methodology is super helpful for certain jobs and circumstances, but can provoke analysis-fatigue in those within earshot who must listen as it is applied to everything and everyone.
- Communicator: You find it easy to put your thoughts into words. You are a good conversationalists and presenter.
- Negotiator: Navigates difficult conversations towards productive outcomes. Driven to achieve the elusive win-win situation (or else, lose-lose). They are imbued with a certain aplomb that can take control of a situation and make decisions.
- Strategic: Sets a vision and devises alternative ways to proceed. In any given scenario, they quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues. Will always win at Pairs.
