Business Systems Analyst

Who we are

Every tech consulting company wants a rockstar or a guru. We aren’t every other company.  At Project X, we want invincible and uncanny super heroes. We hire energetic and innovative people who solve client problems in unexpected ways and who enjoy the challenge of building prototypes in hours or days when it would take others weeks or months. It goes with the territory when you go from a client intake meeting to developing a solution, literally on the road, and come out of it with a data analytics solution that solves a, dare we say apocalyptic, crisis.

At Project X, we take on massive data analytics projects, building customized solutions using awesome tech like Big Data, MicroStrategy and Teradata. We aren’t afraid to commit to the toughest of projects because we think differently, almost mutant like. Our teams are consistently representing Project X while working out of client sites across the GTA and nothing in the field scares them. Well, maybe bees. And spiders. But we will never leave you out there in quicksand; our consultants are first and foremost Project X team members surrounded by an incredibly knowledgeable, dynamic and responsive support system; with mentoring and coaching from Project Managers, and the Executive leadership. We are a culture of consultants with a strong home base not unlike a certain superhero academy that shares our initials. Mostly, we are a culture of team members who own what they do, want to grow through the journey and enjoy working on awesome projects.
