What you’ll do
This role is diverse, it ranges from doing data modelling and behavioural analysis, to working closely with Product Managers and Developers as part of both Discovery and Delivery.
With millions of rows of data behind you, you’ve got an opportunity to have a big impact on the business. For example, you may discover new insight which leads to a bold new hypothesis, then working with Product Managers to put this theory into action with experimentation in our App, and then subsequently provide analysis on test significance, selection bias and roadmaps. You will recommend next steps based on the insight you have gathered and suggest improvements to further optimise.
We are investing in analytics, and you will help shape the vision, process and structure for how we grow. There’ll be endless opportunities to hone your query optimisation and data skills when Data Modelling. Using our ETL process tool (Airflow), you’ll add structure to our unstructured events data (from Snowplow). These will be leveraged by less proficient SQL users to gain insight from our digital data or when building in-depth reports on the health of our data and products.
And last but not least, you’ll be a part of ensuring Gousto becomes even more data driven as we grow. Using your vast knowledge around data you’ll work alongside developers to ensure data is tracked in a way that it is scalable for our reporting tools and is in the simplest format for insights to make sure data and analysis are at the heart of decision-making.
Working with our Product Managers, the rest of the analytics team and other key stakeholders the scope of the role is significant. Even now we’re just scratching the surface so you’ll have the opportunity to take the role in whichever way is best for the company and for you.
