At Octopus, we’ve built the technology to serve millions of customers and are now delivering key insights on the thousands of smart meter installations and millions of smart reads that happen every day.
We’re looking for a junior data analyst to support our smart meter team to help us collate, analyse and report on this data and to help maintain and build our automated data processes.
As a data team we’ve developed a modern Cloud based data platform (AWS, Databricks, dbt, Airflow, Jupyter, Tableau) to serve hundreds of data users across the whole business. We’re passionate about automating work loads and processes so we can concentrate on the interesting problems. You’ll work closely with the smart meter and ops teams to build new reports, dashboards and processes and provide analysis and insight to help them answer their questions.

  • Build and run Jupyter notebooks to automate reports
  • Provide analytical support for regulatory reporting
  • Work closely with a broad range of teams including smart operations, pricing, settlements and Kraken Technology

What you'll need

  • We’re looking for someone with the below qualities:

  • Highly data literate and numerate - can make sense of lots of data and shape it into a coherent story
