It’s a hugely exciting time here at Snowplow. Over the last 7 years, we’ve grown to a brilliant 50 person team that is spread out over 14 countries with nearly 150 customers and many, many more open source users, and we’re heading for even bigger and better things, fast.

At Snowplow, we want to empower people to do transformative things using data. We work with companies from around the world to help them better understand their customers and products, and develop a truly data-driven culture. To support us in this mission, we are now looking for a Data Consultant to join our Solutions Architecture team. We would love to hear from you if you are excited about working at the interface of technology and people, translating business requirements into technical specifications and then implementing these.

The Opportunity As a Data Consultant, you’ll be working with companies of all sizes from across different industries on building out their data capability. You will work on multiple projects each month which may include working with one of the world’s most highly regarded news media companies, a unicorn lifestyle app and a government data team.

Through workshops and co-development sessions you’ll understand their use case and business model, design a Snowplow instrumentation that fits it and then work with their data team to implement it and evolve it over time. The role combines a mixture of tactical tasks, such as writing SQL data models, with more strategic responsibilities, such as helping companies understand what data they need and how they should consume it.

The environment you’ll be working in Our company values are Transparency, Honesty, Ownership, Inclusivity, Empowerment, Customer-centricity, Growth and Technical Excellence. These aren’t just words we plucked out of thin air, we came up with them together as a company and are continually looking to find new ways to weave these into our day to day operations. From flexible hours and working locations to the way we give feedback, we’re passionate about building a company that supports both company and individual development.

What you’ll be doing - Be responsible for managing and delivering implementation projects for new Snowplow customers by holding workshops with them (both remote and onsite) to design Snowplow-centric solutions by: - Understanding our customers’ business problems; - Help them decide what data needs to be captured; - Develop SQL data models to apply logic to the captured data in order to solve the identified business problems. - Work on strategic projects that aim at increasing the value our existing customers get from Snowplow. - Work with our customers to support them in architecting data driven products such as content/product recommendation engines.

You’ll either learn or build on your skills to - Best structure data so it can easily be used for analysis and real-time decisioning. - Implement tracking in JavaScript, iOS, Android and various backend systems. - Work with the raw data in relational databases (Redshift, Snowflake, BigQuery, etc) and real-time (Elasticsearch, Kinesis, PubSub, etc). - Design and develop SQL data models to apply business logic to raw data using industry leading best practises.

What you bring to the team: - Analysis is your thing. Ideally, you will possess a degree in an analytical field such as Maths, Economics, Engineering, Computer Science or similar, or have relevant commercial experience. - You’re not right at the start of your journey. You have experience within consulting, data analysis, or similar. - You have strong technical skills. You are proficient at performing data analysis in spreadsheets or relational databases. Prior experience with SQL is valuable but not necessary. - You love to explain ideas. You are a clear and confident communicator and are able to explain complex technical principles to people with varying technical abilities. - Learning is COOL. You love working with data and are excited to learn how new tools and technologies fit together and drive business value. - Time IS your friend. You are highly organised and able to manage your time effectively. Working on implementations for multiple customers at any given time, you are able to coordinate customer interaction and technical delivery. - You’re a bit of a jet setter. You are willing and able to travel internationally (including to the USA) for work (up to 25% of the time).

What you’ll get in return: - A competitive package based on experience, including share options - 25 days of holiday a year (plus bank holidays) - MacBook or Dell XPS 13/15 - Two fantastic company Away Weeks in a different European city each year (the last one was in Bratislava in November 2019!) - Work alongside a supportive and talented team with the opportunity to work on cutting edge technology and challenging problems - Grow and develop in a fast-moving, collaborative organisation - Enjoy fun events in and around London organised by our Cultural Work Committee - Convenient location in central London (Aldgate) - Continuous supply of Pact coffee and healthy snacks
