About the role

You're results focused and passionate about data visualisation and dashboard development, leading by example and setting the bar. You will embrace the WorldRemit values: "aim high," "embrace challenge" and "do what's right".

  • Build detailed knowledge of WorldRemit data and data sources, and use advanced SQL to simplify complex data for non-technical audiences

  • Maintain and improve a diverse set of dashboards with a passion for automation

  • Champion the use of data to derive commercial insights and drive action, ensuring customer and corridor data and trends are at the heart of every business decision

  • Contribute to the industrialization of analytics, creating reproducible analysis and reports that can provide insight in a continuously moving environment

  • Identify opportunities for improvements through data analysis, and champion the usage of data to derive commercial insights and drive action across the business

  • Present results to key stakeholders

What we’re looking for from you…

  • Experience working in data visualisation and dashboard development, preferably in financial services or technology. Experience in international markets and/or fast-growing companies particularly valued.

  • Expert SQL skills, able to handle complex data structures from multiple sources (Big Data, conventional DBs) and different areas (digital, transactional, marketing…)

  • Strong experience building dashboard or self-serve tools, with preference for Tableau and Looker.

  • Strong analytical capability and evidence of being able to transform data into actionable insights.

  • Experience using mathematical/statistical methods to create models and/or forecasts. Familiarity with statistical software a plus, particularly R or Python.

What you’ll get from us... 

  • Life assurance of 3 times your salary, should the worst happen.

  • Pension scheme offering 8% matched contributions.

  • Private medical and dental care plans.

  • 25 days of holiday plus bank holidays, rising to 28 after 3 years.
