Head of Data

31 Mar 2021

  • A permanent position
  • Opportunity to work 4 or 5 days
  • Moorgate, London / Remote
  • Start date: May/June 2021
  • £50,000-60,0000, annual bonus and equity scheme

We’re excited to be hiring a permanent Head of Data to join PensionBee - a leading pension provider and one of the fastest growing brands in the pensions industry. PensionBee is doubling its growth every year and we’ve reached the capacity of our current Business Intelligence tooling. As we’re reshaping our data platform and BI capabilities, you’ll be able to bring your talents and build out a team of analysts and engineers, transforming how we use our data to drive better business decisions. This role is perfect for someone with experience who wants to build the function from the ground up whilst getting their hands stuck in as part of a small team.

About you

To succeed, you’ll need solid generalist data skills, an understanding of the whole data ecosystem, and a deep insight into how analytics can inform business decisions.

Critically, though, you must have a passion for empowering others and enjoy advocating for the use of data. Insight is only useful when it changes behaviour, so you need the soft skills and empathy to help your colleagues become better data users and develop their own talents and data mastery.

Operating in a fast growing organisation, this role presents you with an opportunity to establish a separate and new team and build our data and analytics strategy for years to come.

Key responsibilities

  • Defining metrics to measure the performance of the business based on knowledge model designs you help us build (within our Objectives and Key Results framework).
  • Establishing a new team, you’ll be working alongside talented engineers to design and build our Business Intelligence tools to make them effective and accessible to business stakeholders.
  • Training, mentoring, and advocating for the use of insight and data.
  • Performing strategic “deep-dive” analysis, like customer segmentation or conversion driver analyses.
  • Collaborating with our product and technology teams to improve business processes and data quality.
  • Administering our Looker environment and developing documentation and learning materials.

Skills & Experience

  • You have a strong analytical mindset and experience with using data to solve problems and find answers to complex questions.
  • You have practical experience in one or more business domains, such as marketing, product, retail, apps, or ecommerce.
  • You have a strong understanding of consumer-facing businesses and customer behaviour.
  • You have good technical knowledge in the data domain, in particular being able to write SQL and potentially simple Python/R applications.
  • You feel comfortable discovering what data is available for your analysis in cloud-native data warehouses (we use Snowflake).
  • You have at least 4 years of relevant experience. We expect you to hit the ground running, but a good understanding of the fundamentals and experience working in a similar role will help you get up to speed quickly.
  • You are self-motivated and prefer to learn by doing, failing, and trying again. You have a can-do attitude to learning new skills and new tools.
  • You are a good communicator who is able to work directly with data scientists, engineers, product managers, marketers, and executive teams. Being able to communicate with clarity and precision is of critical importance to this role.
  • You are a clear thinker who is comfortable explaining their thinking, discussing different approaches to a problem, and working collaboratively and creatively to identify new solutions.
  • You care about the details and have a mature attitude to documentation, security, and process—all of which are important and inform everything we do.
  • You enjoy working across multiple problems with multiple stakeholders at any given moment. To do this effectively, you understand the importance of planning and estimating and know how to balance competing priorities.

You will

  • Get to work with experienced colleagues and build our data team from scratch. Coaching and mentoring is an important part of the road to success for us.
  • Have the opportunity to become our data expert within PensionBee. You will develop strong opinions, whilst retaining a certain level of pragmatism, and you will have the opportunity to share those opinions by writing blog posts and presenting at conferences.
  • Help train the other members of the data team to ensure cross-skilling.
  • Work with cutting-edge data technology that is quickly becoming the standard in the startup landscapes. Tools like cloud data warehouses (Snowflake), data pipelines (Snowplow), ELT frameworks, data modelling orchestration tools (dbt) are changing the way analytics is done—this role is an opportunity to get ahead of the curve.

PensionBee’s existing analytics landscape

PensionBee is in the slightly unusual position of having relatively few data silos: almost all data the business generates goes into the Salesforce platform. This includes some data generated in external systems (such as marketing channels) which has meant that most questions the business has needed to ask of our data have been answered through using Salesforce reports. Because these are accessible to members of the business without a background in data analysis, we have high expectations about our tooling to be as self-service as possible!

However, after five years of depending on this model, there are some opportunities we want to take advantage of that come from integrating our data sources into a single location. Google Analytics and Kissmetrics contain a lot of data on customer behaviour on the website and mobile app, and the ad platforms have a lot of detailed information on marketing spend and campaign performance. Our aspiration is to unlock the value that comes from combining these sources of data, and use that insight to optimise marketing investment and other use cases.

We are on the journey to replace third-party analytics systems with our own data pipeline built on top of Fivetran, Snowplow Analytics, and Snowflake, and we have been working with a consultancy to get the foundations for this in place. This will allow us to have a much more bespoke solution to our particular analysis needs, and create a single source of truth for the customer views. The data we collect from there is clean and well-structured from the get-go, which allows us to realise ambitious plans on the analytics side.

The role

  • Competitive salary, 50k-60k salary (depending on experience), annual bonus and share options.
  • Permanent. Full-time, however we will consider part time - please state your preference in your application. No freelancers.
  • 25 days annual leave (5 extra days for parents and generous Maternity, Paternity & Adoption Leave).
  • Regular company-wide sessions: CEO Session, Show & Tell and Lunch & Learn.
  • Regular socials: Cross-team brunches, Book Club, Pub Quiz, Parties and more!
  • A warm and motivated team working to make a real difference for our customers.
  • Working remotely and/or from our office in Moorgate, London
  • Start date: June 2021

We welcome all candidates and are proud to have been awarded Employer of the Year at the Financial Adviser Diversity in Finance Awards 2020. We believe the right drive is often more important than the full amount of relevant experience or degrees, so if you have an interest in the role and are passionate about what we do, get in touch.

We want everyone to be able to access the same opportunity, and some people might need extra support to have this access. If there’s an adjustment we can make that would help you perform to the best of your ability during the application process, like using a computer during a task instead of writing by hand, or booking in time for a longer interview, please let us know.

A word on COVID

Like many employers, PensionBee has moved most of the team to work from home, with a small group of people in the office carrying out essential tasks. Since September 1st 2020, we have allowed people to choose whether to be office-based or fully remote, and set up hot-desks in the office to accommodate those remote workers that want to visit the office for (socially distanced) face-to-face interactions. At time of writing, the majority of the team are still fully remote.

PensionBee’s office is COVID-secure, and we will continue to monitor Government guidelines on appropriate working arrangements.
