We are looking for a Business Data Analyst to inform and support key stakeholders in interpreting and analysing data, identifying trends, and generating recommendations to guide strategic decisions.​ In this role, you will play a pivotal part of our continued success in the UK but also support our US expansion plans and help us win there.

As a Business Data Analyst, you will work in the Retail Intelligence team, reporting to the VP of Innovation and Data Science, and will collaborate with other client-facing teams such as Customer Success, Marketing, Sales, and with the senior management team to deliver data-driven insights.

Our platform combines the data unification and customer insight of a CDP with an experience platform, letting retail marketers easily and efficiently create experiences their customers love across email, mobile, on-site, social, direct mail and more.

Ometria is trusted by some of the fastest-growing retail brands in the world such as Brooklinen, Davines, Steve Madden, and Sephora.

We have a team of over 120 Ometrians based in North America and Europe. We have raised $75m from leading venture capital funds across the world such as Infravia Capital Partners, Octopus Ventures, Summit Action, Sonae IM and many others.
