You’ll have experience working with data warehouse solutions, extracting and processing data in various ways using off-the-shelf tools and open-source tools. You’ll also be really familiar working with Linux or Windows operating systems and version control systems (Git).
We work in Agile methodologies as a preference, so being comfortable working in this way is important. You should be comfortable in a customer facing situation where you’ll need to communicate clearly and effectively in English – often with people who might not be as technically experienced, so good written and verbal English skills are important. You should be someone who is passionate about team collaboration and knowledge sharing, with the passion and drive to achieve goals and targets. We value empathy in our colleagues, and it’s important you bring a growth mindset and a willingness to learn and adapt.
