Business Analyst 
Opera Solutions is currently seeking Business Analysts for our New York/Jersey City offices. 

Business Analysts are responsible for discrete pieces of analysis that contribute towards solving a client’s business problem. Business Analysts will break down a problem into hypotheses to be tested; structure the testing approach; identify, model, analyze and interpret data; help develop the story to be communicated to the client; assist in developing client recommendations; and work collaboratively with client team members to implement change. Business Analysts will work on many different engagement types, gaining direct exposure to different clients from day one while solving a variety of business problems. 

Our Business Analysts are able to think on their feet, learn rapidly, and develop creative solutions to discrete problems. A high level of comfort with numerical and quantitative analysis is essential. Prior experience with programs such as Microsoft Excel is an advantage, and we will expect you to progress along a steep learning curve. 

Business Analysts are typically recent university graduates. It is acceptable to have no prior consulting experience and only limited work experience (internships, summer jobs, etc.). 

Basic Qualification: Bachelor’s degree (graduation date no later than June 2016) 

Job Requirements: Highly motivated individuals of any background who 
 Have a record of outstanding academic performance 
 Enjoy problem solving, can think on their feet, and are able to develop creative solutions 
 Are eager to work and contribute in a team-based environment 
 Are comfortable with numerical and quantitative calculations and analysis 
 Have excellent leadership, communication (written and oral), and interpersonal skills 
 Have prior experience with Excel and PowerPoint (advantageous but not required)
