Huq is recruiting a Data Analyst who is expert in SQL, has worked with large datasets and GIS, and is a passionate communicator.


Huq provides real world, real time consumer insights at unprecedented scale. Huq has built a proprietary and unique technology that leverages mobile data to interpret what groups of consumers do in the real world on an anonymised basis. We help our customers learn about how consumers shop and work, how they travel and where they rest. Huq is a well-funded young company with a very strong client list from a diverse range of sectors including Finance, Out of Home Media Planning, Retail Information and Credit Rating. We’re in the process of rapid growth and anticipate to soon be processing billions of data points per month.

You:

You will bring Huq’s data to life to support client pitches, turning numbers into stories and graphics. You’ll spot things in our data that we haven’t seen, and turn them into a tweet, a slide for a pitch, or a white paper. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have direct experience of our target client sectors, but you’ll pick this up quickly using your own initiative. You will be heavily involved in supporting the pre-sales effort, and have a strong sense of how to address customers’ technical enquiries in the most expedient and effective ways.

You will be very familiar with the challenges associated with delivering new datasets and data products into organisations. You will have experience supporting customers as they get to know the qualities of our products and how to help them get the most out of them. You will be comfortable dealing directly with customers’ in-house data scientists, analysts and product managers, and have a fluent ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical audiences.

Huq operates a flat organisational structure and as such you will be comfortable with voicing your opinion in a group environment and bringing new ideas to the table.

Role:
