Job description / Role

Enabling quick working prototypes is a must-have ability.
• You will be involved in answering the trickier questions by supporting the business with identifying potential solutions; often needing to creatively apply familiar data blending techniques or experiment with new ones before you find the approach that can crack it wide open.
• You will support updates/changes to Business analytical requirements and existing data processes including support in quality assurance before a solution is pushed to production.
