About God’s Love We Deliver

For people living with severe illness in the New York City metropolitan area, God’s Love We Deliver provides nutrition therapy, and cooks and home delivers medically tailored meals. We are a non-sectarian organization. All of our services are provided free to clients and full of love.

About the Role

God’s Love We Deliver uses a variety of applications to manage our varied work, encompassing functions such as customer service, nutrition counseling, culinary design and production, order fulfillment, HR, and business development. The Business Analyst helps ensure that technology applications serve the needs of our stakeholders, primarily employees but in some cases volunteers and clients.

As the Business Analyst, you’ll collaborate with various teams to understand business needs and identify how technology can meet those needs through the design and implementation of efficient processes and tools. You’ll work with functional leads and stakeholders to understand a business problem, then strategize on a problem-solving approach, collaborate on requirement definitions, and partner with internal and external implementation teams to architect solutions. You’ll also get to know our wide data set, producing and advising on reporting so that we continue to have the information we need to run effective, high-impact programming.
