Job description

We have an exciting opportunity for a Visualization & Automation Analyst to join the Data Solutions team. The role will be responsible for streamlining existing manual processes into automated pipelines around the various departments at ITV as well as owning all self-serve and dashboarding initiatives.

 This role will allow you to use existing state of the art technology at ITV as well as the freedom to explore and introduce new services, be it open source or vendor.

What You’ll Do

Working within the team you will: 

  • Partner and work closely with different teams across the organisation to either advise in a consultative capacity or create proof of concepts that can be productionised by the help of the Engineering teams
  • Own the dashboarding and where possible, create highly interactive, self-serve data products that allow data to be democratised across the organisation
  • Have curiosity and take initiative into exploring and recommending new solutions and services
  • Work with large and varied datasets whilst data is queried in the most efficient and optimal manner
  • Provide ad hoc analysis or aid in problem solving

What You’ll Bring

  • Experienced in working with multiple data sources and large data sets
  • Creativity and technical skills to produce highly interactive and self-serve dashboards using Tableau or other tools i.e D3, Plotly etc.
  • Experience in at least one programming language with evidence of data collection and data preparation, ideally in Python.
  • Be comfortable in writing efficient SQL queries to extract data whilst minimising query run time
  • Have experience in at least one programming (we use Python) language with evidence of data collection and preparation (it could be web scraping or working with REST APIs)
  • Experience in web development front end technologies such as HTML/JavaScript and CSS would be extremely desirable
  • Be personable and have excellent client facing and organisational skills
