About the Employer

Job Description

Competitive salary and benefits package including: contributory pension, life assurance, 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), holiday buy, cycle to work scheme.

Due to the demand for insight within our business we continue growing our highly professional BI team with a forward-thinking philosophy. You will act as senior member of a team responsible for developing and maintaining data and reporting solutions to facilitate business decision making. 

Your role will split evenly between design and development of the data warehouse and associated ETL processes, and front-end reporting using the IBM Cognos suite (Analytics and Framework Manager). Utilising both elements to design and develop accurate, reliable and performant business intelligence solutions to support the business’ reporting needs.

Agile methodology plays a key part in our day to day operations and working towards a true DevOps culture is critical to our continued success. New technology and innovation are therefore central; we actively encourage our team to explore new technologies continually improving our systems. Cloud infrastructure plays a large part in our ability to achieve this and as such a large proportion of the estate is hosted within Amazon Web Services.

Working daily as part of our multidisciplinary business intelligence development team, including developers, quality assurance and business analysts, you will provide support and assistance where appropriate.  In addition to working with database administrators to ensure that data warehouses are tuned for optimal performance, scheduled tasks are executed correctly and that data integrity is maintained.

You must have commercial experience of designing, implementing and maintaining Kimball architecture data warehouses. Advanced knowledge of SQL and relational databases in an ETL context is essential, ideally covering multiple products e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server and Oracle.

We provide our franchisees with a range of competitively priced grocery products and services that allows them to compete in the convenience retail grocery marketplace. To support this, we are constantly analysing financial, industry and retail data at our head office to ensure our retailers achieve the highest levels of success.
