    Given that our product measures the effort teams make as they write software, it would be hypocritical of us not to pay a lot of attention to the work we are putting into our jobs – so the work you do will be highly visible to the whole team. 

    The role includes comprehensive training and development. You can expect to be doing a mix of projects and ad hoc work – some examples are below – as well as working with the sales team as they deliver executive presentations.

    Key Responsibilities
    • Liaison between client technical team and BlueOptima development team

    • Consult with clients on the underlying Coding Effort metric and evangelise its use
    • Data Quality checks / Deep Dives
    • Liaising with backend team on future developments
    • Linking data sets to generate reports
    • Creating / maintaining BI dashboards
    • Producing ad hoc reports
    • Developing new applications / uses for the existing data
    • Produce reports based on BlueOptima Coding Effort data and explain the insight they reveal to senior managers to support decision-making
    • Develop additional applications for the BlueOptima product and data predominantly using R and/or similar statistical tools

    Qualifications & Experience Required
    You will have experience in a consultancy/analytical function. Bachelors and/or Master’s degree in Statistical/Analytical/Mathematical Degree or equivalent expertise in an analytical role.

    Key Skills:
    • Strong people skills demonstrated through consultancy or similar experience, e.g. engaging with stakeholders for client companies
    • Experience of project management and designing processes to deliver successful outcomes is desirable
    • Data Visualisation (via Tableau, Qlikview, SAS BI or similar)
    • Strong fundamentals in Statistical Analysis 

    Desirable Skills
    • R or similar programming experience (e.g. Matlab)
    • Understanding of software development life cycle


    Your normal place of work will be BlueOptima’s London office, currently at 39 Webber Street, London SE1 8QW. The location of BlueOptima’s office may change but is expected to remain in London. In the event you are working away from the office or the client site, you are expected to inform the company of your location and work from an appropriately quiet, secure and professional location.

    You will be required to travel where this is appropriate to your job as the needs of BlueOptima may demand. You may from time to time be required to work from or at other BlueOptima offices or partner or customer sites within the UK and overseas.

    £35,000 - £45,000 dependent on experience + bonus scheme.
