You will be a Business Analyst/Senior Business Analyst from a technical background, not a developer, but a Business Analyst who has been sat with development/test teams and someone who has strong SDLC experience.
You also need to have greenfield projects experience, not off the shelf products, so someone who has made enhancements or changes to systems won't be right for this role. Working as a Business Analyst on projects where projects started from scratch is the kind of experience they are also looking for.

Strong client facing/interaction is also a must, you will be dealing with senior stakeholders and high level decision makers, so you need to be very good in a client facing role/environment.
