We have an exciting Senior Business Analyst position available for an international mid-size biotech firm, based in either their Belgian or Dutch site. Their activities are rapidly expanding, leading to an increased need for new computer system solutions throughout the company. The central Information Systems (IS) department works in close collaboration with all departments to select, implement and support systems. Many of the activities are executed through planned projects.


As Senior Business Analyst, you will have a key role in implementing and maintaining systems and tools to support a wide range of activities, from research projects to proof-of-concept studies. In collaboration with the scientists, bio-informaticicians and developers, these tools are incorporated in a central IS framework.

It will be your task to set-up and maintain systems which will deliver value and solve challenging issues and meet business needs through the application of the high performance computing and data resources.

As a Business Analyst, you will have a pivotal role in between the business and the technical analysts and developers. On the one hand, you need to translate and challenge the needs of the scientists which requires insight into and understanding of their business and processes; on the other hand you will work on global IS solutions which requires close collaboration with the more technically skilled people of the team.

During your analysis, you will build up knowledge and expertise with regards to application usage and maintenance. You will also manage the support after a solution is in production, possibly in close collaboration with external partners.

Next to the role of Senior Business Analyst, you will also be given the opportunity to lead and keep oversight of (global) IS projects, making sure the initial needs are translated into a global solution in the most efficient way.


What are we looking for?

  • A Bachelor or Master degree in science, preferably biology oriented or an equivalent combination of education and experience
  • At least three years relevant experience supporting processes in a pharmaceutical environment, preferably research related
  • Five years of relevant experience as a Business Analyst supporting and implementing information systems
  • The ability to work independently, being able to partner on all applicable levels with the user groups
  • The ability to find sensible system solutions for complex business challenges
  • Good communicator, both in English (must) as well as in Dutch (preferred)


Besides a competitive salary scheme, you will also have the chance to:

  • Work in a dynamic and fast-growing company
  • Work on very innovative system solutions in research which could eventually improve outcomes for patients
  • Have an impact on the organisation’s short-term and long-term success
  • Take on increasing responsibilities and work on projects from A to Z
  • Learn a lot as you will work very close with both scientific and technology experts as well as their applications


If you would like to learn more about this position or the company, feel free to reach out to me.
