We’re looking for a Data Analyst to join our team. Data Analysts at Auto Trader take volumes of data and analyse it to provide insight into our customers and our business. They love thinking creatively and using data to uncover new and innovative ways of making our digital products even better at reaching their audience. It’s our aim to be the most admired digital company in the UK so we continually review and improve our digital advertising products and develop new ones to stay ahead of the market.
As a Data Analyst your focus will be carrying out analytical projects that provide data-driven insights to the business. This will require you to develop skills in structuring, cleaning and analysing data using tools such as SQL and at least one high-level programming language such as R and Python. You will have an interest in applying your knowledge of mathematics and statistics to real world problems and data sets and developing your skills into a modelling focussed role. We would love to speak to candidates with an undergraduate, degree, master’s degree or PhD in a numerate subject such as mathematics, statistics, physics or computer science, who have a desire to work with big data in an innovative commercial environment.
However, it’s not just about the technical skills! You will demonstrate strong commercial awareness and will have a curious approach allowing you to have a great understanding of our products and customers. You’ll also be working with non-technical teams so it’s key that you’re able to communicate data in a clear and simple way that meets the audience’s need.
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 £25,000- £45,000 and we offer a great flexible benefits package including 25 days’ holiday, pension and healthcare. We believe in providing more than just salary and benefits. We’ll give you time and support so you can develop your career. Our Analysts attend and present at conferences and are active in the meet-up community. As you can see, it’s not limited to what you learn at your desk!
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.
