Tasman is defining the future of Data Science As A Service. We are a young, fast-growing company funded fully by analytics & data science work for our ambitious clients.
We are hiring a Data Analyst to join our team and help us:
- Leverage our growing data platform to provide fast, accurate insights to key business questions
- Work with our clients to deliver in-depth analysis that solves business challenges and enables data-informed decisions
- Design and build dashboards that clients can use to self-serve analysis and track key metrics
- Be one of the key points of contact with our clients and work closely with analytics engineers and data scientists to ensure what we build delivers business value.
Tasman helps fast-growing companies build out a best-in-class data platform and team.
We work with companies of all sizes, stages (from pre-series A to post-IPO), industries, and business models (e.g. ecommerce, B2C subscription, B2B SaaS, etc). Past clients include well-known brands like Asana Rebel, Canon, Ecosia, Kaia Health, and Pensionbee. What they all have in common is a desire to use data to improve their decision making. This is also what drives us: we deliver the people, platform, and processes to make that possible.
We do this by operating as an interim data team for our clients—occasionally alongside an existing data team—always with the goal of fully handing over to an internal data team by the end of the project. We leverage our combined experience in data strategy, business analysis, data engineering, analytics engineering, data analytics, and data science to deliver meaningful insights to the business and set their internal data team up for long-term success.
Tasman was founded in 2017 and has since grown to a team of 15 across three countries: the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Sweden. We expect to double in size in 2022 as we take on an increasing number of clients. We are a profitable business and have not taken outside investment—our growth is fully funded by the revenue from client work.
The work environment at Tasman
We are a remote and distributed team: we give everyone the flexibility to work from home, a co-working space of their choice, or one of our offices. We trust our team and understand that life sometimes happens in between work.
Moreover, we want to create an environment where people of all ages, identities, and backgrounds can thrive and achieve meaningful and sustainable growth. We take a people-first approach that promotes work-life balance alongside physical and mental well-being, because we understand that investing in the long-term health and success of our team members achieves the best outcomes for everyone involved.
As a small company, we are still a work in progress. We are working to craft a culture and workplace where people who love data are able to do their best work. We therefore welcome feedback on everything we do: from hiring and onboarding, to how we work and communicate, and how we most effectively deliver value to our clients.
YOU & THE ROLE
- Help our clients to solve real business challenges that have a measurable impact on their success.
- Develop comprehensive, articulate business analysis documents that ensure successful delivery.
- Run rapid analysis leveraging a growing and scalable platform for data science and analytics
- Build sophisticated, user-friendly data dashboards that allow self-serve analytics
- Contribute to client data strategy across different business domains
- Work in close collaboration with the other teams at Tasman to design and develop a consistent data layer
- Expand and improve the suite of tools that form the foundation of all the client work we do.
- Get to work with an experienced team. Coaching and mentoring is an important part of the road to success for us.
- Have the opportunity to become an expert on data analysis. You will develop strong opinions, whilst retaining a certain level of pragmatism, and you will have the opportunity to share those opinions by writing blog posts and presenting at conferences.
- Work closely with internal data teams at our clients to ensure a smooth handover as we near the end of a project.
You are someone who:
- Is self-motivated and has a can-do attitude to learning new skills and tools.
- Is a good communicator and able to work directly with other functions in a business.
- Is comfortable explaining their thinking and discussing different approaches to a problem.
- Likes working collaboratively and creatively to identify new solutions.
- Cares about the details and understands the importance of documentation and process.
- Takes security seriously.
- Knows how to balance competing priorities.
- Understands the importance of planning and estimating work.
- Likes working on multiple problems for multiple clients at any given time.
- Cares about creating an inclusive and diverse environment.
- Thrives in a remote-first, distributed work environment.
To succeed in this role:
- You have practical experience in one or more business domains, such as marketing, product, retail, CPG, apps, or ecommerce and understand how business value is realised in those domains.
- You have a strong understanding of consumer-facing businesses and customer behaviour.
- You have a strong analytical mindset and experience with using data to solve problems and find answers to complex questions.
- You have at least two years of relevant experience. You won’t know how all the systems work on day one so we don’t expect you to hit the ground running, but a good understanding of the fundamentals and experience working in a similar role will help you get up to speed quickly.
- You might have a STEM degree. You might not. That’s not necessarily what we’re looking for. We care about what you can do and how you do it, not about how you got here. A strong track record of conscientious, thoughtful work speaks volumes.
You will work as a data analyst in one of our two delivery squads. Each squad works with between four and six clients at any time and is responsible for the end-to-end delivery of the data project for those clients. They are multidisciplinary teams so you can expect to work closely with—and learn from—data engineers, analytics engineers, data scientists, and the heads of data and engineering. By contributing to end-to-end solutions for a variety of clients, you will be able to hone both your technical and analytical skills, and your business acumen.

This is what you can expect from the application process:
- Application. You will be asked to submit a resume and answer a few questions, which help us understand how your background and interests fit with what we are looking for at Tasman.
