Data Analyst at Peakon
London, GB

DESCRIPTION

At some companies you can feel the momentum building. People are engaged, they're approaching their work with energy, enthusiasm and resilience. Being part of the organisation becomes part of your own identity.

At others, it feels impossible to get everyone pulling in the same direction. People lose sight of the company's purpose, they start looking out only for themselves – or elsewhere for new opportunities.

We started Peakon to help companies around the world build better workplaces. Where employees know they're listened to, managers learn from their own decisions and develop as leaders, and entire organisations see a step-change in what they can achieve.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do. At Peakon you’ll find a transparent salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends…

 

ABOUT YOU:

You are a problem-solver, with an analytical mind and great communication skills. You may not have worked in organizational or engagement science before, but you can skillfully analyze a dataset and understand how to effectively tell a story.

You can use programming and query languages (we use R, Python and SQL) to pull out the necessary answers from complex datasets. You have a firm grasp of core statistical concepts and can explain them to a non-technical audience.

You care about accuracy, replicability, but above all, clarity. You efficiently complete tasks, and are happy juggling multiple projects at the same time.

We welcome your application even if you do not meet all of the criteria listed above, but are excited about the challenge of mastering this role. We know that skills are not static and growth is continuous, so we are excited to help you take your career to the next level at Peakon.

REQUIREMENTS
