Full Time

OLIO is the world’s only neighbour-to-neighbour food sharing app, and our mission is to solve the problem of food waste in the home & local community. We do this by connecting anyone with spare food – which can be households or local businesses – with neighbours living nearby who would like it. Globally, over one third of all the food we produce gets thrown away, which is worth over $1 trillion. What few people realise however is that in the developed world, over half of all food waste takes place in the home, with the average UK family throwing away £800 of food each year - collectively adding up to £15bn. OLIO solves this with our award-winning mobile & web apps. Over the past 2 years OLIO has grown from a local initiative in North London to a global movement.

We now have over 465,000 users who have together shared well over half a million portions of food – with food being successfully shared in 32 countries and counting. Underpinning this incredible growth has been our volunteer programme, with over 19,000 people reaching out to spread the word about OLIO in their local community and rescue unsold food.

OLIO is now looking to grow our core team as we embark upon the next exciting phase in our journey.


In order to accelerate OLIO to its next level in growth and impact, we are recruiting for a Data Analyst & Dashboard Developer, who will report into Viv Taylor, Product Manager.

In this role you will be responsible for:

* Data Analysis: Analysing key business questions in our burgeoning data via an SQL interface (both through
GUI and command line tools)
* Data Visualization: Development of a “data dashboard” for the company to help us interrogate our data
visually and in a user friendly manner
* Data Innovation: Liaison with our broader OLIO team to ensure that the right questions are being asked of
our growing datasets, in the right order.
* Data Exploration: Evaluation of the effects of specific initiatives/experiments at OLIO, generating and
presenting reports of their efficacy
* Setup of regular reports that provide insight into ongoing company/departmental performance.
* Assisting with online ad creative endeavours, their implementation and analysing their impact

Once you have proven yourself you will have great freedom and autonomy, coupled with an enormous opportunity for personal development. All of our roles are remote working roles, however for London based team members
there is the ability to co-work as well. We live for our mission, but like to have fun along the way!


Our ideal candidate will first and foremost be as passionate about our mission as we are! In addition to this, you will have the following experience and skills:

* Significant prior experience with SQL and RDBMS.

* Excitement about Productivity Tools and Data Science.
* Curiosity about and enthusiasm for systems and processes
* Scrappy and resourceful when facing challenges of all types

* You have experience working for a high-growth startup
And all OLIO team members share these attributes:
* A self-starter with a ‘can-do’ attitude
* Resourceful and creative
* Thorough, but able to move quickly and decisively
* A ruthless ability to prioritise
* Excellent communication skills
* Fun to work with :)
