🔭 Our mission & vision

Our mission is simple. We want every working person globally to have complete financial freedom by giving them power over their pay.

Power over pay means the ability to instantly access, track, save and manage earned wages. We want to transform people's lives and the organisations they work for.

Job Description

The Company:

Wagestream is on a mission to bring better financial wellbeing to frontline workers.

We partner with some of the world’s most famous employers, like Pizza Express, Hilton and the UK’s National Health Service, to give their teams access to fairer financial services - all built around flexible pay. Almost a million people can now choose how often they’re paid, track their shifts and earnings, start saving, use budgeting tools, get free financial coaching, and access fairer financial products. All in one financial wellbeing super-app.

Wagestream is unique: VC-backed and growing at scale-up pace, but with a social conscience. The UK’s leading financial charities and impact funds were our founding investors, and we operate on a social charter - which means every product we build has to improve financial health and reduce the $5.6bn ‘premium’ lower-income earners pay for financial services each year.

You’d be joining a team of 200 talented, ambitious people, growing in Europe, Australia and the USA, building a category-leading fintech product and all united by that same mission.

The Opportunity:

We are looking for an Associate Business and Data Analyst who will use insight to improve our product for both our users and clients. You will get the opportunity to answer big, undefined questions through data analysis using a modern stack (dbt, SQL, R/Python, Tableau), and have a real impact on our product from day 1.

We are just getting started in tapping the potential of our data here at Wagestream. The Data Analyst will be tackling problems not previously investigated, as well as given the freedom to identify new areas of opportunity.

The Team:

We are currently a small data team, but looking to grow quickly in the next year. In terms of line management, you will report to the Senior Data Scientist who will support you technically and with prioritisation.

In terms of your day to day working you will be working alongside Product Managers, Engineers and Designers. This could mean working in our growth squad in growing user adoption, or in our app squad testing new features and designs.

What will you be doing?:

Our Business & Data analysts get to span the full data lifecycle; expect to spend some of your time doing deep dive analysis using SQL, R or Python, and building dashboards in Tableau. You will also spend time with a mix of stakeholders, getting to know their problems and delivering insight in a clear manner that improves their decision-making.

Data at Wagestream is not a service function; you will be empowered to make recommendations and challenge stakeholders based on your knowledge of the data.

We are looking for a self-starter, focused on business impact, with demonstrated success in a business intelligence or analytics function

Minimum 1+ years of experience in an analytical role
Strong SQL skills
Experience in data visualisation tools (we use Tableau)
A strong ability to communicate findings in a concise and engaging manner
Experience working with stakeholders; understanding and challenging requests

Knowledge of statistics (e.g. experimentation design, statistical inference)
Experience with dbt, or R/Python
Within 1 month you’ll have:

Spent time understanding our business/product, and aligning with key stakeholders
Got up to speed with our tools and technologies
Within 3 months you’ll have:

Start working with Product Managers, Engineers and Designers to leverage our data to improve decision-making
Within 6 months you’ll have:

Answered some of the biggest questions facing your squad
Key dashboards developed and built for team members to access in a self serve manner
Working Policy:

We operate a hybrid policy with a requirement of two days a week in the office.

£40,000 - £55,000 + bonus + equity

A £250 "home office allowance" to buy anything to get your home office comfortable
State of the art, brand new equipment - from Apple MacBook Pros, 34" curved monitors and Wagestream Swag!
We'll help you manage your busy lifestyle with flexible working opportunities; most of the team work "core hours" to allow touchpoints with their team, but we also make sure you have the time to pick the kids up at 3pm, or go for that mid-morning run to boost your productivity. We want you to have the best of both worlds
We offer 25 days annual leave in addition to public holidays (up to 5 day rollover), as well as flexible time off allowances for any ad-hoc childcare/family/caring needs
We offer 12 weeks paid maternity leave and up to 4 weeks paid paternity leave for employees with over 12 months service
We want to invest in you financially, so we have a pension scheme with Aviva
If you love cycling as much as we do, keep yourself physically fit with our Evans Cycles Ride to Work scheme
And after a long weeks' work, join us in undoing it all - with membership to The Wine Society. (They also do gin and beer!)
We want everyone to achieve "zen mastery" with a free subscription to Calm — work can be stressful and we want to help you switch off
And the best benefit of all... Free access to the Wagestream service - naturally
