The role
We’re looking for a dynamic and strategic Data Analyst to help us level up how Farewill does data analytics and reporting. You will report directly to our VP Finance, and you’ll work alongside our Senior Analytics Engineer and our Business Unit Leads to provide data that drives key business decisions on a daily basis.
You won’t be starting from scratch: we have a comprehensive data warehouse and suite of visualisations, and a great culture of using our data to make decisions. But there is work to be done to simplify the warehouse, update core tables with approved definitions, and review our reporting suite to make sure that it empowers stakeholders with insight and the ability to self-serve. There will be a particular focus on aligning real time product performance financial metrics with those used in our accounting suite.

Over the next year, you will take on challenges like:

  • Redesigning our core company KPI metrics and dashboards, making information accessible via clear and insightful visualisations
  • Creating real-time reporting for our financial metrics, e.g. accurate revenue reported next day with clear dashboards
  • Supporting Finance and other teams with impactful analytics projects, e.g. product pricing, variance analysis vs budget, mix analysis
  • Partnering with other stakeholders on ad hoc analysis and insights

About you

  • You consider yourself a highly numerate and commercial general analyst, and have at least 3 years of working experience
  • You're great at creating clear visualisations and dashboards, and structuring reporting suites
  • You have experience writing SQL (bonus if BigQuery) and using a modern data tech stack including cloud data platforms and visualisation tools
  • You make the complex simple. You’re thorough and detail oriented, but also pragmatic and able to identify when tradeoffs need to be made (and to communicate what those tradeoffs are!)
  • You know how to scale yourself. As a member of a small team, you understand the need to take a strategic approach to data, with a focus on building complete self-service solutions
  • You love seeing your analysis drive real business impact. This requires great communication and teamwork. When you spot an interesting pattern in your data you’re proactive in sharing it and figuring out what it means
  • You ideally have some finance and accounting knowledge, but this isn't strictly necessary

What we offer

  • A competitive salary of £55-65k + stock options
  • 28 days of annual leave plus the usual public holidays
  • Personal development budget of 3 days and £1000 per year
  • Hybrid working; our team works a minimum of 2 days/week in our lovely East London (Haggerston) office
  • Regular team socials & company-wide events
  • A chance to make a meaningful contribution to people's lives and deaths
