Meet Us: King Arthur Baking Company is an award-winning, audience-leading baking company with a strategic vision to be the resource for baking education and inspiration. Through traditional and new media, in-person and virtual education, we strive to be a leader in helping novice and expert bakers alike. We're not going anywhere - we've been part of the family since 1790. We work to build stronger communities and increase access and the connection to real foods. We take pride in our responsible sourcing and our "never bleached" guarantee. And we work closely with farmers, millers, and suppliers in a continued commitment toward sustainability. Our wheat flour is grown and milled right here in the United States. Flour this good uses only the purest ingredients, free from GMOs. As a founding B Corporation, we are committed to using the power of business as a force for social and environmental good.

We are a welcoming and inclusive 100% employee-owned company.The Position: As a key member of the Information Technology (IT) Team, the Sr. Business Analyst (SBA) is the voice of the consumer and champion of the system users.

The SBA will have in-depth knowledge of the business, customer and systems. They are an expert facilitator who can elicit the needs from multiple groups including senior level executives and synthesize the result in an easily consumable set of deliverables. They use critical thinking and an innate attention-to-detail to represent all business requirements, scenarios and use cases to ensure that the systems are built to delight the customer and drive the business.
