99designs has always been an early adopter of modern tech and their pioneering in the data space; dbt, Airbyte, Snowflake & Looker, and the new tools and roles that are evolving alongside are no different! So feel like coming on this wild ride? Read on…
99designs is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Its mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world. Founded in 2008, 99designs has grown from a small, online forum into a worldwide community of talented designers that is now the go-to solution for businesses, agencies, and individuals.
The data team at 99designs is growing, and what once was a central function with a whole of business view, has now evolved into a team of embedded specialists that support a group/tribe and the squads within.
So what is the role all about I hear you ask?
There are a few roles actually, suited to various levels of experience. The fundamentals of data analytics remains the same; championing a data driven culture characterised by informed decision making across the organisation.
As Lead Data Analyst you are a thought leader in this space, and looking to develop your career as a people leader and deepen your experience as a data analytics practitioner. You have a natural curiosity, and a passion for learning and adopting new tools and technologies (think dbt and Looker). As a data champion, you are enthusiastic about how problems can be solved and will help to define the processes for the whole data team and expand on 99designs’ analytics playbook.
As a Data Analyst you have a business mindset and a passion for working closely with stakeholders to understand their data and business needs and have a bias for action. You will uncover insights and trends through exploratory data analysis, experimentation and data visualisation.
A little bit about you
You have an affinity and passion for partnering with stakeholders, developing relationships and understanding their business needs. Communication is your absolute superpower and you have the ability to listen and bring people on a journey.
You can build and contribute to tested and documented data models and have a proficiency in SQL and are comfortable with data modelling (dbt experience isn’t necessary but a willingness to learn new tech would be fab!). You will have experience navigating different BI tools and ideally have experience with R or Python.
As 99d continues to scale, they are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team that reflects the communities in which they operate. They want people to feel like they belong and can bring their whole selves to work. Their aim is to continue to foster a collaborative environment with a keen focus on innovation, growth and ownership. Below are just some of the things they do to support their people:
