Are you able to interrogate data and translate insights into a story that non-analytical minds can grasp? Do you enjoy working with product, content and commercial teams to help shape business decisions? Are you curious about, and capable of uncovering patterns in Big Data? Can you flex and adapt your skills and expertise to new and different business models?
We are starting a new wave of data transformation at Time Out Group. We are embarking on a mission where data is the cornerstone of the next wave of Time Out’s success through keen interrogation of our existing data assets, and introducing new ones to drive the business forward.
As a unique business that straddles two seemingly different worlds (media and hospitality), our data and insight demands are bespoke. This role will be fundamental to building our data-driven approach, culture and capabilities. It will play a key part in helping drive our transformation from the ground up, working closely as a business intelligence partner, and guiding decision-making through insight that impacts the company’s future.
Work proactively across the business to identify opportunities to streamline reporting and design compelling dashboards (e.g. in Looker)
Build data products and/or tools that allow business leaders to get a clear understanding of performance across their areas of responsibility (Media and Markets), understand trends, and identify areas that need action.
Be the champion and technical lead for driving process efficiency through automation.
Act as a sounding board for the business to validate KPIs across business areas and be the go to person to help answer the ‘Why/ How’ question.
Work with Data Engineers to create governed datasets that the business can trust and rely on to self-serve.
Act as the bridge between product & engineering (Tech) teams and the business to ensure data quality and integrity.
Provide training on tools/dashboards to internal users as needed.
Horizon scanning for best practice, latest developments and tools within the data sector.
Skills and Experience
Undergraduate degree in a relevant quantitative or technical field (e.g. Maths, Physics, Computer Science, Economics, Finance, etc.).
Solid working knowledge of SQL for querying, and Python for automation scripting.
Adept in working with large amounts of data, manipulating & visualising using relevant tools.
Ideally three or more years of experience and steadily increasing responsibility in a BI function.
Good communication and interpersonal skills.
As part of the transformation, our tech stack is also evolving. Our data platform sits across Google Cloud Platform & Amazon Web Services with access to their supporting tools. We currently use Looker for visualisation & reporting.
Ideally, we would like relevant experience across a cloud native data platform and the experience or the ability to quickly learn new technologies. It's critical for this role to be technically adept in working with data and proactively use a solution-centric approach to problem solving. Knowledge of open source tech would be of great value.
