Help us make a big green dent in the universe. We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and we need loads more people to help us make our vision a reality.
Octopus Energy Services is a tech driven business that is spearheading the transition to greener, cheaper energy through the installation of in-home technologies; from smart meters and EV chargers; to low carbon heating, home batteries, solar, and beyond.
We deliver smart energy, low carbon solutions for our customers and we’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with heat pumps - which provide an ultra-efficient, reliable alternative to replace dirty gas boilers that contribute 14% of the UK’s CO2 emissions.
We're on the lookout for a Data Analyst to join our team, working collaboratively with our Leadership Team to provide the killer data insight required to give us an edge.
This role can be based in either our Brighton office.

  • Assist our leaders with performance management, steering smart growth and customer strategies, pipeline analysis, and sales dashboard optimization.
  • Drive improvements in our sales process, measure campaign effectiveness and work cross-functionally to establish reporting and process standards
  • Your outputs will range from robust analytic models, custom performance analysis and the packaging of findings into decision ready insight.
  • You will build tools that can be 'self-serve' for team members with frequently-repeated questions.
  • You will also set the agenda and lead improvements in how Octopus accesses, stores, analyses, displays, and uses data

What you'll need

  • Bachelor's Degree, preferably in an analytical discipline such as engineering, science, economics or computer science.
  • Strong data analysis and logical reasoning skills
  • Ability to balance priorities and work productively in a fast paced environment
  • Proven self-starter behaviour: Curious, innovative, problem solving and autonomous
  • Have an accomplished skillset in Excel, DataLake and ability to build and maintain reports and dashboards using BI tools such as Tableau
  • A high level of data literacy and numeracy skills
  • The capacity to make sense of lots of data and shape it into a coherent story
  • Beneficial (not essential) to also have experience in Low Carbon Technologies such as Heat Pumps and Solar Panels.
