Business Intelligence Developer

Simply Business - Ranked 21 in 'Top 100 Best Companies to Work for 2014' (Sunday Times)

Far from fulfilling a musty insurance stereotype, we’ve created a colourful, collaborative working environment. In our head office in central London you will find a casual dress code, flexible working hours, and an open-plan office where our CEO works right beside everyone else. You will also find cross-departmental teams working on exciting projects, releasing new products quickly to change the traditional insurance market.

You will help us reshape our analytics capability. Over the last year we have transformed our company to put Build/Measure/Learn at the heart of everything we do.

What you will be doing...

As a Business Intelligence Developer, you will be part of a team which is transforming the use of data within our organisation, with a clear strategy aligned to our business strategy and current operations. This is the start of an exciting journey for our team.

Support our company’s Build/Measure/Learn methodology by working closely with our cross-functional development teams as they iterate on our core products and enhance our business systems.

Optimise our existing business through delivering regular information and building and supporting self-service capabilities for our management and operational functions. This focuses on conceptualising and then delivering reports and analysis to all parts of our business.

Collect and store business data through working with our technology teams to define and implement the latest thinking on how we collate and manage our data assets. Unlike many Business Intelligence functions, we have the ability to change how our source systems generate data. We want to use this to streamline our data processing and use new techniques pioneered by the big web firms to enrich our data and analysis capabilities.

Discover new knowledge by using data science techniques to uncover insight from our various data sets and feed this back into our operations and company strategy.

What we need...

Extensive experience in architecting and developing data warehouse and business intelligence solutions using the Microsoft SQL Server BI stack (we use 2012),
Specifically, we need good SSIS skills (we also use SSAS and T-SQL - but we can train someone on this)
Someone who is passionate about the latest in data/big data technologies (alongside SQL, we are also using things like RedShift and Kinesis) and there will be plenty opportunity to learn these technologies
Experience in .Net development
What we can offer...

Salary is commensurate with experience. As standard benefits, we offer life assurance, childcare vouchers, pension scheme and a cycle-to-work scheme and a season ticket loan. With our flexible benefits scheme, you can also mix and match the following:

Private Healthcare
Dental Insurance
Extra Annual Leave
Gym Membership
Flexible working hours
Sociable and collaborative environment
Regalar team and company events
