Programmer Analyst

Programmer-analysts bring together the skills of computer programming and business/system analysis.

Overview

Programmer-analysts help businesses solve complex problems through the application of their strong analytical, process and computer programming capabilities. Businesses turn to programmer-analysts when trying to solve tough problems with existing programs as well as when they are trying to make dramatic changes to existing business processes and supporting computer applications.

Many programmer-analysts start their career at a consultancy, such as PwC or Accenture, where they develop business analysis skills that complement the programming skills they picked up through some level of university education. Programmer-analyst jobs are most typically found in corporate IT and consulting groups though the role sometimes exists within consumer software and Internet companies.
