The role

We organise in cross functional pods, devoted to the core strategies aligned across the organisation. BI Analysts support driving these pods to be data and outcome focused. They setup measurement of experiments, analyse trends and segments, define KPIs, co-develop decision engines with data scientists and present their findings to a wide range of stakeholders. They support data driven thinking and action in our organisation.

The BI team also takes ownership of development of data literacy across the organisation. How to setup correct analysis and thought patterns, skills training and measurement systems. We turn to our BI Analysts for queries about what should be our next step, how can we best utilise resources and achieve our objectives.

We work in an environment with CI/CD pipelines that support the BI analyst and data engineers to make multiple production changes a day to our DWH and microservices. Our team lives and breathes agile and is custodian of all data at Prospa. Our work is varied and fast paced with the freedom to tinker and question and suitable for those with drive to make a difference.

Primary tech stack for BI Analysts includes Snowflake, Databricks (Hive SQL and Python), Tableau and airflow built upon Azure PaaS and SaaS services. We have some legacy R being phased out. We chose the right technologies for the job, and we may head into multi-cloud n the near future.
