The online travel market never stands still. My client creates the tools and technology that help millions of travellers find the perfect hotels and flights for their next trips.
The Data Intelligence team is responsible for the availability, reporting and governance of data critical to company growth and profitability. The team partners with the entire organisation - Product, Technology, Finance, Sales and Customer Operations – and support the leadership team and external partners in growing the business.
My client is looking for an energetic and passionate professional who loves to contribute to the successes of the team. They want the team to write SQL like it’s their first language and treat publishing tools like their own personal canvas while always remaining focused on the goals of the team and the business. You will focus primarily on data governance and analysis based on requirements of the business.
You will have experience working across in a fast-paced environment, across multiple concurrent projects. You can demonstrate your ability to work both autonomously, and collaboratively, towards the completion of requests and larger goals, on time and to a high standard. You are a natural problem solver and have an awareness of the commercial side of a business that will put you in a good position to become part of the beating heart of this dynamic organisation!
You are someone who can comfortably work with stakeholders to understand their needs and translate them into compelling and beautiful presentations of data, and other data solutions, whilst balancing multiple projects and priorities. All this while at the same time showing an eagle-eye for detail that sets the Data Intelligence effort out from the rest.
What you’ll get is the opportunity to continually grow and develop, provide data that people use in their daily roles, while working alongside some great minds and with best-in-class tech like Teradata, Hadoop and Tableau. You’ll also get exposure to some cutting-edge technologies and techniques like Spark, Data Science and Machine Learning. All that in a great, friendly and collaborative working environment at the UK’s #1 Place to Work!
