    With investment from the top into data and all its uses, this is an exciting time to be joining the company and they look to understand and explore their customer’s behaviours and relationships with the brand in more detail than ever before. As always, there is the challenge of educating and liberating existing stakeholders across many different functions within this fashion giant as to the possibilities of data driven decision making and actionable insights – which is where this role comes in.

They have already invested in a cloud based platform (GCP) and are very open to using open source tech such as R and Python for more advanced analytical solutions and projects – all of which will be led by you, from a product perspective.

    The culture is fast paced, young and agile, and with double digit growth YOY, this trail blazing brand continues to lead the way in fast fashion and there is an agenda to make the brand unique and distinctive, by tapping into the data and through the use of analytics and data science.
