Data Analytics and Insights Consultant
RoleAll Other Remote
SlashData is the leading research company in the developer economy: We help the world understand developers and developers understand the world. We survey 40,000+ developers annually - across mobile, IoT, desktop, cloud, AR/VR, web, games, data science, and machine learning - to help clients such as Microsoft, Facebook, Google and Amazon understand who developers are, what tools they love or hate and where they are going next.
We’re now looking for a Data Analytics and Insights consultant who will maximise the value of our data aiming to discover the opportunities that will help our clients improve their business outcomes.
You’ll be working based in Europe or MEA, working remotely to support our distributed team.
Who we’re looking for
As a Data Analytics and Insights Consultant you will have a minimum of three years of experience in statistical consulting, data analysis and modelling, data visualisation, and data project delivery to clients. Your command of the English language will be second to none.

You will have undertaken many data analysis projects in the past where your novel insights and attention to detail would impress. You will have experience in working alongside clients, either internal to your company or external, to guide them from a vague brief to a research outcome that answers their business questions, and you will have a proven record of communicating your findings to a non-technical audience, eloquently narrating the story behind the numbers. You might not have worked in the software industry before, but you have a basic understanding of how it works.
If you’re that person, we’d love to talk.
