The Requirements Engineer Role

High-level definition of the Requirements Engineer role

Requirements Engineer is a term which is often used interchangeably with the IT Business Analyst though many people see this role as being limited to requirements gathering and documentation. The reality is that there are no industry standards for the scope of the requirements engineer.

From our experience, this term refers to a role that sits somewhere in between the IT business analyst and systems analyst.

The requirements engineer is charged with working with the project stakeholders and end users to elicit, understand, analyze, and document the requirements for a system in order to solve a given business problem.

Other common titles for this role are: Requirements Analyst, Functional Architect, Business Systems Analyst, Business Analyst (generic term), etc.
