Job Details

I am working with a growing software company in London who are looking for a Head of Data to help grow their analytics and data capabilities, based fully remotely.

The company:

The organisation are a global business that operate in a niche area of the learning sector, with over 250 employees. Based from London, you will be leading the data function and helping to develop the company's analytics capabilities. They are investing in their existing data and analytics function to bolster and develop their capabilities, with you at the head of this. The business has also recently acquired seven other companies, so this in turn has created a huge amount of new data.

The company have offices all over the globe, so whilst the role can be based remotely, you may have to travel on the odd occasion (London, Germany, Singapore). Realistically, you may travel to London 4/5 times a year - all expenses paid.

The role:

This role is for a senior figure, experienced in the field and who wants to take on leadership of the data team. You will ultimately be responsible for architecture, development, insights and operations of the data technology as well as to work with internal stakeholders to ensure the system meets the needs of the business.

You will initially come onboard and immediately hire a Data Engineer and BI Developer into the team. Reporting into the CFO, you should have a strong commercial background in the field of data and be comfortable speaking to stakeholders at board level.

Key Skills and Experience:

** A proven and successful track record of leading and developing high-performing data teams

** The ability to clearly deliver business-critical information down the line in order to ensure proper execution of duties by the data team

** Understanding and experience of applying data integration and reporting techniques/ methodologies to a wide range of problems

** Experience and familiarity with BI tools and reporting/ visualisation best practices (Power BI/QlikSense)

** Experience using cloud technologies (Azure preferred)

** Strong technical knowledge of SQL and DWH concepts and technologies

** Proven practical experience in design, development and optimisation of complex data pipelines, models and algorithms

** Ability to lead a team of Data Engineers and BI developers, driving excellence and innovation

If you are interested in helping to grow this Data team, whilst having backing from a modern tech company, please apply or call Hamish at Cathcart Associates.
