The Role

We’re looking for a Data Analyst to join our team who will be able to help us build, analyse and model the different data solutions that we offer our clients.  The role will be focused on developing a range of analytical products for the travel industry. Working with us you’ll have a unique opportunity to develop your career by working directly with clients of all sizes and across a range of different sectors.

Key Skills & Interests

From a technical standpoint we’re looking for someone who has a minimum of 2 years experienced using SQL languages to transform, analyse and model data.  Familiarity with GCP and BigQuery is preferable. You should be comfortable moving data from ftp sites to databases, developing and managing large scale analytical processes and visualising complex data in easy to consume ways.  We also use Elastic Search, Python, D3 and more, so any experience in these areas will stand you in good stead.

From the commercial side, it’ll also help if you have an interest in some of our analytical areas such as pricing, geo-mapping, forecasting or revenue management.  As a small company innovation is key to what we do, and we are looking for a candidate who can contribute across many areas of the business.  You can find out more about what we do at align-alytics.com.
