The Company:

The Educe Group is dedicated to helping organizations evaluate, implement, and optimize talent management technologies that enable them to realize the full potential of their employees. We are partnered with innovative, industry-leading software providers to offer our clients comprehensive talent management solutions.

At Educe, we offer our employees the opportunity to continually learn and develop as consultants, contribute to our growing firm and make an impact on our clients. We recognize and appreciate the unique strengths of each member of the Educe team and encourage employees to challenge themselves and hone skills based on their individual strengths and interests. We believe that by consistently offering our employees opportunities to take on new responsibilities we empower them to drive our firm's growth. Ultimately though, we work hard here because as individuals we find personal satisfaction in making a difference. This culture is a priority for us and we intend to continue improving the ways this firm can interest, challenge, and reward us all. We think this is an important component of why Washingtonian Magazine has awarded us "Best Places to Work" four consecutive times!

The Role:

We are looking for driven, innovative Business Consultants with a successful track record in full life cycle Saba implementations. The Business Consultant is responsible for requirements analysis, business process mapping, design, and implementation of Saba Cloud. You will work closely with Educe clients to develop best practice processes, act as the system expert, and serve as a liaison between end users and the technical deployment teams. You will be responsible for system configuration based on specific client requirements as well as streamlining and modifying the client's business processes to develop a complete business solution.

The Responsibilities:

The position involves working closely with clients and colleagues to do the following:

  • Gather requirements and define and map current processes in order to create "to be" business processes for the client based on current best practices.
  • Analyze and document design specifications for the application.
  • Implement application design by working closely with both the client and Educe technical team.
  • Assist in user acceptance testing efforts and act as the liaison between the client and the system implementation team in troubleshooting product issues as they apply to the client's business.
  • Participate in end-user training by providing both product knowledge and insight on the client's business processes and solution design.
  • Serve as a mentor and subject matter expert resource for more junior consultants.
  • Additionally, the position involves helping to develop and improve the Educe internal infrastructure as a whole and contributing to organizational objectives.

The Requirements:

Candidates must have:

  • Experience in the design, development, and implementation of Saba Cloud.
  • Knowledge of Saba Cloud deployment and implementation methodologies.
  • Demonstrable ability to resolve complex system or business issues, often thinking on their feet, and offering multiple creative solutions or options.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills. Must be comfortable with public speaking and facilitating group discussions with senior executives.
  • Ability to work closely and build relationships with client executives and external stakeholders.
  • Ability to work independently, as well contribute significantly in coordination with a team.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and an outgoing, positive attitude.
  • A passion for service, pride in the quality of their work, and the instinct to follow-through until a job is properly done well.
  • Attention to detail and solution-oriented with strong organizational skills.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to be resourceful and take initiative.
  • Strong problem solving, analytical and MS Office skills.
  • Ability to manage, prioritize, and multi-task on multiple projects.
  • Ability to be flexible to and adapt to the dynamic nature of consulting engagements.
  • Deep knowledge of MS Project, SQL, Oracle applications, and HR-based software is a plus.
  • Experience working with Health Care and/or Higher Education industries is a plus.
  • Experience with validation, and governance is a plus.

Basic Qualifications:

  • A minimum of 2 years of Consulting/Professional Services experience.
  • A minimum of 1 year of experience with full life cycle Saba Software implementations.
