You will be involved with the end-to-end data lifecycle, from Data Acquisition, Data Management, Statistical Data Analysis, to find the golden nuggets in data to support your business insights. 

The role provides a great chance to broaden your skillet across the whole data lifecycle, to gain more advanced statistical insight analysis skills, to improve your business-facing strategy skills, and to tell stories from data that make a significant difference to both the business as well as disadvantaged people who need money transfer solutions with minimal costs in doing so.

Your role as DATA ANALYST / INSIGHT ANALYST will make a meaningful difference to people’s lives in a fast-growing FinTech market utilising the very best Analytical practice. 

Ideally degree educated in a numerical discipline – could be Statistics, Mathematics, Economics, Operational Research, or any similar qualification.

Technical skills in Excel, R, Python. 
Experience in Data Management (Databases and Data warehouse, ETL, etc…)
