Are you passionate about Data and have a few years’ fulltime experience helping customers with their data challenges? If you have also acquired hands-on experience with AWS along the way, then this could be the perfect role for you!

We are a customer-obsessed, “one stop shop” for all things data-related.  We are deliberately narrow in our focus areas but we go deep in each of them.  We provide solutions, services and training in the data strategy, data governance, data security, data management, data classification, data wrangling, data lake, data analytics, data visualisation, artificial intelligence, machine learning and IoT areas.  Our solutions and services help transform customer organisations by teaching them how to turn their data into insight!

We build on AWS, using the latest AWS services, best practices and reference architectures.  We deliberately focus on large public sector customers that are data-heavy but insight-light – federal & state government departments, universities, public sector agencies, public health organisations, and public utilities.

We are an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and an AWS Public Sector Partner, working towards our Data & Analytics and Government competencies.  We are also a registered technology supplier to the Federal, New South Wales, Victorian and Western Australian governments and we have a Master Services Agreement in place with AWS Professional Services.

Your impact

 As a Data Analyst, you will play a key role in working with customers to understand their business requirements, map these to their data capabilities, liaise with our internal Data Engineers to design and build elegant solutions, then partner with our customers to deploy those solutions in a way that allows them to turn data into insight.  You will have 2-3 years’ experience working as a Data Analyst (or similar role) on data-related solutions, preferably using AWS, and will be comfortable working with business analysts, data visualisers, data engineers and data scientists, to enable customers to solve their data-related challenges.

You will relish the opportunity to innovate, evolve and challenge existing assumptions and to develop the data-related requirements that feed into the design of solutions that solve real-world problems for customers.  Your experience with large-scale data challenges and ability to analyse them as input into reliable, scalable cloud-based solutions, will see you thriving in this role!
