Business Data Analyst – Excel, MySQL

A vibrant OEM start-up in Oxford is seeking a Business Data Analyst to join their rapidly expanding team. Reporting to the CFO and Directors, the Business Data Analyst will develop a stock management system, alongside analytical and reporting systems.

The Data Analyst will be joining a highly successful hardware supplier and recently formed software house with major product releases scheduled across 2018 and 2019. The ideal Data Analyst will take an autonomous role, with an exacting knowledge of stock flow and an inquisitive mind towards exploring business opportunities through data analysis and business intelligence.

The Data Analyst will be eager to acquire greater responsibilities as the role develops, with the freedom to adopt tools and technologies to improve the commercial direction of the young company.

The company began trading in 2013, with the newly formed software team coming up to their first anniversary in the summer. Their products have international recognition, engaging with markets worldwide.


The Data Analyst will bring:
• Strong skills in Excel (including pivot tables, VLOOKUP etc.)
• Ideally a degree in business or STEM, OR proven experience within a similar role

The Data Analyst may also bring (desirable skills):
• Exposure to Business Intelligence tools (e.g. tableau, Qlikview)
• Scripting languages (e.g. VBA, Bash, Python)
• Querying languages (e.g. MySQL)

If you feel that you can perform stock management and basic data analytics, training and encouragement will be provided to build an expansive skill set across data analytics. Their training and internship schemes have already proven highly valuable to staff and the company as a whole!


The Data Analyst will be expected to become a strong member within the company culture, being:
• Personable and confident – The teams are very friendly, but also fast paced; you shouldn’t be afraid to make your voice heard!
• An independent thinker – You will be trusted to manage your workflow and produce data and insights within a light-touch management structure
• Business minded – As a young start-up, their focus is on profitability and growth; they are looking for a Data Analyst who can recognise business opportunities and confront a challenging market


As the role picks up speed, the Data Analyst will be responsible for:

Creating and maintaining a Stock Management System to provide:
• Weekly updates on stock values
• A precise value of goods through import and expense data
• Prediction of expenditure across several currencies
• Assistance with the monthly order cycle

Analysis and modelling of data across all departments using business intelligence tools, including:
• Mining sales data from the e-commerce website
• Discovering sales activities likely to impact stock holdings

Reporting and presenting analysis and insights, including:
• Weekly departmental meetings
• Monthly Director briefings with CFO and Business Advisors


The role is based south of Oxford city centre, away from the congestion of the city centre, with parking on-site and within a good commutable distance of Oxford, Reading, Aylesbury, Banbury and High Wycombe. The offices are out in the countryside, with difficulties in public transport – however, a company transport scheme is being arranged, with the decision made to buy a bus and hire a driver for employees without access to personal transportation!!
