What does a Senior Programmer Analyst do?

Programmer analysts study, plan, develop, and execute computer programs and systems. They develop these programs to perform a specific function or solve a particular challenge. They often do preliminary research to identify the objectives and priorities. They commonly interact directly with the customer or user to gather insight about their particular needs and challenges. Their work involves programming, testing, and implementing systems and tools. They oversee the integration process to ensure individual programs and applications work well together.

Programmer analysts typically have a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field, although equivalent relevant work experience or completion of a technical training program may also be acceptable. They should have extensive hands-on experience successfully developing and implementing programs and systems. Proficiency with common programming languages is expected.
