This is a key strategic hire; you will work across the company supporting teams to be data-driven by uncovering better and more appropriate data for their decision making.

Experience with dbt is helpful as well. To build pipelines that get data into our data warehouse, Python is important, and having worked with pipelining tools like FiveTran or Stitch is a plus. We use a modern tech stack with Snowflake, AWS, Looker and Terraform, and experience with those are a plus.

Impact: This role can hugely improve how we run our business and how we make business decisions, through surfacing the right data at the right time and building a platform that helps us do that. A constant focus on positive impact for the business will help being amazing in this role. In terms of work practices, you focus on speed, design for simple solutions and have an understanding of what is good enough.

Stakeholder management: You work closely with key people in the company. Identify what the questions they need to answer are, and how they can be best informed to answer them. Bring them along on the journey of finding, transforming and surfacing the information that they need. You are able to work with multiple stakeholders at the same time, and can prioritise, including communicating those priorities to your stakeholders.
