About You

You will be passionate about data and how we can use it to our improve our business. Having gained suitable academic and work based experience in the data analytics/engineering arena you’ll be motivated to pursue an opportunity that allows you a hands-on-role in data architecture and processing.

  • Strong t-SQL experience and capability
  • An understanding of data architecture and data warehousing principles

  • Knowledge of key data science methodologies (e.g. regression, classification, unsupervised learning)
  • Experience programming in R is desirable

What to Expect

  • As part of the Customer Insight department you’ll work with the Data Scientist to explore and analyse our customer data.
  • Looking at key data sets, we want you to develop and model data sources to identify key attributes that drive deeper understanding of customer behaviour.
  • Your technical skills will allow you to interrogate and optimise data in normalised databases as well as tackling unstructured web and social media data.
  • Presenting analysis on the impact of new data on customer behaviours will allow you to demonstrate your analytical prowess.
  • You will work closely with IT, Campaign Analysts and our Performance Reporting team to ensure that newly developed data sets are available for use across all the Customer Insight teams. Your knowledge of data warehousing and data science methodology will ensure that the data is available to cover the wide range of uses across these teams.
