As a Senior Data Analyst your focus will be on providing data-driven insights and recommendations to the business. The role will involve structuring, cleaning and analysing data using a broad range of processing and modelling techniques. We would love to speak to candidates with a numerate degree or PhD who are currently employed in a Senior or Principal Data Analyst role with significant experience of working with big data in creative commercial environments. You should have experience of extracting, querying and analysing data at scale using tools such as SQL and Big Query, excellent knowledge of programming languages such as R or Python and experience working with large, real world data sets to extract meaningful insights. You may come from a modelling background and have experience applying techniques such forecasting, decision trees, clustering and linear regression. Equally, you might come from a web analytics background and have experience with Google Analytics, Adwords and SEO. In both cases knowledge of statistics, A/B and hypothesis testing would be particularly advantageous.
However, it’s not just about the technical skills, you will demonstrate strong commercial awareness and you’ll also be working with non-technical teams so it’s key that you’re able to communicate technical findings in a clear and simple way.
So are you the person we’re looking for? If so we’d love to hear from you. The salary banding for this role is between £35,000- £50,000 depending on experience. We also offer a flexible benefits package which includes 25 days holiday, pension, private healthcare and we are located in awesome offices in First Street, Manchester.
Everyone is unique in their own way and we are looking for people from all walks of life to become part of our inclusive culture. We’re committed to making Auto Trader a diverse and inclusive environment for everyone. Diversity for us means respect for and appreciation of differences in: gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, race and ethnic origin, religion and faith, marital status, social, educational background and way of thinking. Our dedication is to ensure you get the chance to be the best that you can be, showcase your full potential and make the right choice for you.
