The Senior Business Consultant is part of the Professional Services (PS) team here at Backbase. PS is a team of highly motivated specialists with the specific skills and experience required to make sure that the implementation of our product at our customer’s location goes ahead as smoothly as possible. The PS team also provides product training and implementation support services to all of our customers and partners. Every project has its own set of unique challenges that must be overcome, and PS team members must be able to think and react quickly to find a solution that works for everyone.

Our PS consultants work closely with partners and customers all over the world. They have the professional and personal skills required to develop, teach, support and lead teams towards successfully delivering our enterprise solution and achieving their goals.

As part of the PS team, you will report to the Lead Business Analyst.

As a Senior Business Consultant at Backbase, you work closely with our customers and partners to define, start and manage the implementation of our product in an agile way. Together with UX and Development colleagues, you create a fast start and help them get up to speed. Once the project is running, you hand the project over to the client and partners, and will act in a supporting role. Flexibility is needed as no matter how well prepared you may be, situations can always turn out differently in practice.

This is a crucial role within the Backbase PS team, because you’re in the driver’s seat to help our customers realize their customer experience vision.

  • Acting as ‘product owner’ for the project to guide the team making the right choices to maximize project and customer success.

Who are you?
