Our core value of ‘Love Work, Love Life, Be You’ has been central to our success and so we’re looking for people to join us who share our passion for making things better every day and help us continue to grow. 
We are the number one UK headquartered software provider in the UK and are forecasted to grow to a global population of over 12,000 employees by 2026. 


What are we all about?

At Access, we love software and how technology never stays the same. It's this obsession that drives us to work closely across sectors to understand the business needs of our customers - from the Hospitality sector, to Manufacturing industry, to Not for Profit’s to Construction, and many more. 
We're passionate about helping our customers stay one step ahead of the challenges facing their industry and business, currently helping over 60,000 customers to have the freedom to do more. 


About you:

You’re analytical, passionate about data, clear communication and reporting to enable us to make more data driven decisions and add value to the business.  
The next step in your career is to move into a highly senior Data Analyst role, but you want to retain the technical aspect of what you do.
You have delivered valuable work in diverse, rapidly growing business environments, and with a range of technology appropriately selected for the task at hand.
In particular, you have experience with Tableau, SQL, Python and Databricks (or similar, eg Snowflake) environments.
You will have substantial experience working with stakeholders to understand requirements and deliver reliable and clear insights from data using BI Analytical software.
You think about how your role contributes to the overall success of the company; this is one of your main guiding principles in decision-making.
You will be self-motivated, proactive, and goal-orientated, with a strong ability to work autonomously.

Create and deliver data-driven and evidence-based product metrics and report them using clear and compelling visual, numerical, and written summaries.
Pair with junior team members on their work, with the ultimate goal of elevating them to the same level of technical capability as yourself (or beyond!).
Assist Data Engineers and Data Scientists to evaluate and make recommendations for data gathering techniques that will improve the efficacy of machine learning models and other analytical systems.
Optimize reporting dashboards with a focus on usability, performance, flexibility, testability, and standardization.
Play a key part in the coordination of project work in the team, supervising the work of others.
Establish high technical standards in the team (including guidelines for documentation, testing) and ensure that these are consistently met (eg, through code reviews).
Contribute heavily to a culture of knowledge-sharing, both within the team, and in the wider organisation.
Spend time with your stakeholders, forming great relationships with them and becoming a trusted partner.
Your Knowledge and Skills will include: 
Strong Tableau Desktop & Tableau Server development skills (a Tableau public profile is a plus).
Excellent ability to design and execute complex queries using SQL for ELT processes.  
Good ability to build queries in SQL and/or PySpark to import data in Tableau from Databricks or another cloud platform.
Familiarity with R, Python or an equivalent programming/data science language.
Advanced skills in Excel, including ability to transform Excel data analytics workflows into Tableau or Databricks.
Excellent understanding of data privacy and ethics relevant to the Data Analyst role.
Good understanding of data pipelines, data quality assurance and testing for production level dashboards and reports.
Ability to define user stories and product requirements and prioritise team workload according to stakeholder priorities. 
Ability to develop junior members of the wider team in all areas of the role.
Ability to create clear documentation of data analysis processes and products.
Great communication skills where can deliver clear insights and communicate to non—technical business teams.
