Full time

It would be great if you have:

  • Delivering BI solutions: You will have been involved in the deployment of effective, scalable, self-service BI solutions. From identifying the user needs, to building tools (such as dashboards, alerts, reports or materialised views) through to navigating the areas of support and training that come ensuring they provide ongoing value.

  • Analysis & Insight: We will be serving teams across the business so you will have experience of defining processes and metrics relevant to various teams (Sales, Marketing, Product, and Finance). You will have a track record of providing valuable insights and analysis that supports decision making and drives action, and you will be a good communicator able to convey information and present recommendations effectively to a variety of teams and levels of seniority.

  • Data Modelling & Manipulation: While SQL is a ‘must have’, you will also have competency with common languages and tools of the modern data stack: python, notebooks, version control, warehouses, and transformation tools. You will be comfortable developing models to live within the warehouse, or accessing and manipulating data for ad-hoc analysis or exploratory work.

  • Data Governance: You will understand the challenges with ensuring data quality through the pipeline and managing discrepancies across sources. You will have had a hand in developing controls and data quality tests, exposure to tools and processes involved in their implementation.

It would be nice if you have:

  • Significant exposure to end-to-end project ownership: you can run discovery processes with stakeholders, scope, plan and deliver solutions that meet their requirements, while being able to deal with various blockers and negotiations along the way.

  • Experience with advanced analysis methods: while we will aim to keep things simple, you won’t be afraid to make use of more sophisticated techniques as required especially across: time series analysis, classification, marketing attribution modelling etc.

  • An interest in/experience with creative, but effective, data visualisations beyond the standard bar, line, and scatter-plot charts.

  • Some understanding/exposure to streaming data tools and processes would be beneficial.

  • Our teams are active open source contributors and are encouraged to do this as part of their role at Ably. We like new team members who enjoy contributing back to the open source community, even if those contributions are small.

  • Good grasp of Agile, Kanban and SCRUM.

What’s it like to work at Ably?

Ably is entering a new phase of growth led by an experienced senior team. You’ll be part of a successful, highly motivated, and extremely collaborative team.

To provide the infrastructure required for the next generation of the internet, to tell the world about it, and to support everyone inside Ably to do so we hire people who are ready and capable of taking on challenging problems in a high-growth environment.

We want to work in a company of inclusive people who treat each other well. To really thrive at Ably, you’ll need to believe in and be prepared to do your work in line with our values, which are:

  • Open for all. Open is a mindset. When open, we’re better collaborators, communicators and creators. Whether open source, standards, or protocols, open hearts, minds, and eyes. It’s better when it’s open.

  • Bias for action. We avoid analysis paralysis at all costs. We lean into doing in order to move us forward. When we have enough of what we need to act, we act.

  • Even the best do better. We want to be the best - but that doesn’t mean we rest when we are. Improvement and growth - true betterment - is an ongoing journey. One fuelled by curiosity and taking risks.

  • Technology needs humanity. Our technology means little without people - whether that’s how we treat our colleagues, or how we design developer experiences. Being human matters.

  • Dependable people make dependable things. Dependability is integral to our mission and technology, but being dependable starts with our people. When we care enough to take real ownership of our products and problems - all else will follow.

  • Bold creativity leads to the greatest rewards. When viewed through a different lens, what stands in the way can become the way. The bigger the challenge the easier the choice: bold creativity will always move us forward, create better outcomes, and set us apart.

What’s in it for you?

  • A great company culture

  • Share options

  • The chance to learn and grow with a fast-moving company, supported by a learning budget that gives you access to professional training, events, conferences, workshops etc.

  • Remote first: Unless you want to pop into our communal office space in Shoreditch, London, you’ll work from home most of the time, apart from when we have planning sessions and Summits. Travel to the office is at the employee's expense, apart from when we have Ably Summits

  • Your choice of high quality tech kit to work on

  • Home workstation set up budget of £500, plus an annual top-up of £150

  • Regular company away days and social events

  • Friday need-to-know drinks and snacks

  • Private health insurance, including Doctor@Hand

If you enjoy working as part of a technology company, value open source, and love solving hard problems - then we’d love to hear from you, regardless of whether you fit the job description exactly or not. If in doubt, drop us an email; we’d be more than happy to give you some advice on your application.

We believe our differences as individuals is what makes us great. Our people are at the heart of what we do, and we encourage everyone to be their most authentic self at Ably: we see inclusivity and openness as fundamental to creating long-term success as an organization.
