I am working with a digital function of a largescale company in Glasgow who are looking to recruit a Data Analyst to the team.

The company:

The business is a national renewables organisation and they are growing their digital capabilities greatly. This is a brand new position, created in order to help to develop internal software and to continue to modernise their cloud and data services.

Sitting within a team of roughly 50 Software Developers, you will report into the Product Owner and will be involved in making a number of “nitty gritty” decisions. You will be working across a widespread number of projects and these will all involve modernising the software environment (Web and Apps).

The company look for some presence in office (1 or 2 days a week), but there is flex on the days.

They offer strong benefits on top of the salary including a strong pension, good holidays and other additional perks.

The role:

There are actually two different Data Analyst roles available, both brand-new positions. The role is a blend between a Data Analyst along with a Business Analyst – someone with a strong requirements gathering and documentation background. The business try to work across Agile Scrum as much as possible, however there are occasional Kanban projects (depending what suits best). Some of the teams are also on two-weekly release cycles, the others monthly.

In terms of role, you will be responsible for: Data Analysis – the ability to source, manipulate, analyse and visualise data to answer business questions. Business Analysis – Solid experience in requirements gathering, solution definition, producing documentation and artefacts. Delivery – experience managing/driving delivery of digital / technical projects.

The team you will work with are truly cross-functional, with Developers, Designers, Testers and BA’s. The teams utilise a variety of technologies and these are very modern and the very best available.

Key Skills and Responsibilities:

A few years working as Data Analyst/Technical Business Analyst

Experience of data tools like SQL, Excel, Power BI, Google Analytics and/or other product analytics platform

Agile knowledge – ideally Scrum (Kanban, Lean also ok)

Work closely with agile development teams to deliver great products and services for our customers

Solid experience in requirements gathering, solution definition, producing documentation and artefacts required by technical teams to build and support digital products e.g. user stories, acceptance criteria, process flows

Project experience with multiple integrations and APIs would be great

Create high-level documentation

Participate in daily scrum meetings, planning, reviews and retrospectives

This is an opportunity to work with a thriving and employee-first organisation. You will get to work on some largescale and modern projects and with some huge organisations, whilst leading and working alongside some very bright minds.
