COMPANY

In just over 15 years, Adatis has grown to over 100 people, become a Microsoft Gold Partner, opened offices in the UK, Bulgaria and India, and been recognised as a leader in everything from data strategy to analytics consultancy and data visualisation.  But more than anything else, we are a people-first business with a close-knit team and a culture that people really love; and, importantly, a career model that lets you take control of your development and progression.  So if you want to do some great things in data analytics (and have some fun at the same time), welcome to Adatis.   

OUR VISION 

To be the data analytics company most admired for its people, culture and innovation.

ROLE

Picture the scene - you've spent months crafting the finest analytics system known to man, then the user pops a couple of badly crafted excel reports on top and everyone judges your solution as a product of the 90's. It happens.

You have a deep and up-to-date knowledge of Microsoft Power BI and Analysis Services, as well as best practices around the governance and management of these systems as well as a broader passion for implementing actionable analytics solutions. You have experience in managing large-scale Power BI deployments and migrations and are comfortable guiding clients on how to embed actionable BI into their overall data strategies. You will have keen business and requirements analysis skills, able to translate business needs into reports and data stories that deliver value. Familiarity with other reporting tools and approaches is a big plus.

If you know your cartograms from your cartographs, your Fews from your McCandless and can explain the limited scenarios where a pie chart is acceptable - you should be talking to us. This candidate will join cross-functional sprint teams as a data viz expert - helping design data models, build semantic layers and crafting interactive dashboards so shiny they bring a tear to the eye.

The rate of change in these tools is phenomenal and so the successful candidate will have a history of quickly adapting to new technologies, a passion and desire to challenge tradition and a drive to help us define the future of data analytics.

This is a client-facing position. As this is a consulting role working on client sites for possibly extended periods, the ideal candidate must be willing to travel.
