About Zero Deposit

Moving into a new rental property is expensive.

The security deposit can cost up to six-weeks rent and often tenants have to find their next deposit before getting their last one back.

We're changing that by giving tenants an alternative.

With us, tenants have the option to pay one week’s rent, instead of a security deposit, while providing landlords with the same security as a six-week deposit.

We have big ambitions and are well funded to deliver on these.

Data is critical to our business. We’re looking for someone to lead it.

Data is central to everything we do at Zero Deposit. We rely on our data to inform product decisions, optimise our processes and decide how we scale our quickly growing company.

Up until now, this responsibility has been shared across the company. With different aspects of the organisation managing it themselves.

We’ve now grown to the stage where we need someone to take ownership for data analysis and reporting across the business. This role will touch on all parts of our organisation, covering product, customer experience, operations, sales, marketing and more. We’re looking for someone naturally curious, who isn’t afraid to get stuck in and can quickly switch between answering important questions for different parts of our business.

What you’ll do:

  • Design how we visualise our data so that it can be understood and used to make decisions across the business. This will range from high-level reports that are sent to our board and investors down to low level reports that are used to optimise performance both in the user journeys within our product and within teams such as our sales team.

  • Validate our data visualisation approach - we’re currently using a combination of Google Data Studio, Redash, Salesforce and Excel for this, we want to know if this is the correct approach or if there are better tools out there.

  • Write performant SQL queries which provide the data behind these reports. We’re also looking for someone to validate and optimise some of the existing SQL queries that we’re using.

  • Ensure that the reporting we’re providing is statistically accurate.

  • Define the data requirements for new projects and products to ensure that an ability to report and analyse what we’re doing is built into the design from the start.

  • Be the point of contact for teams throughout the organisation who have questions about reporting. As much as possible, we want to make sure that people can “self-serve” their reporting requests by building dashboards and reports which they can use to get the answers they need.

  • Champion our test & learn culture and drive us to test a hypothesis, learn from it and quickly iterates based on the results. This could be through A/B testing or by digging into our data to analyse the impact of a project.

  • Work with various teams to create one-off reports or answer specific questions they have.

  • Proactively use our data to analyse the root cause of what moves key metrics like conversion rate, customer churn, etc. and contribute to ways that these could be improved

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Has experience working with data. This doesn’t have to be exactly as a Data Analyst or a Data Scientist, but someone who has used data to create visualisations and reports that tell a story behind the data to a wider organisation.

  • Is comfortable working in a flexible, fast-moving, startup environment.

  • Is able to take reporting requests from across the business and dig deeper into what people are actually trying to understand in order to be thoughtful and deliberate about what reports get created.

  • Has excellent communication skills and is able to help non-technical colleagues understand what our data means.

  • Is able to write and optimise complex SQL queries and is able to analyse data in Excel.

  • Can create effective data visualizations using tools (e.g. Google Data Studio, Tableau) and decide which is the best tool for the job.

  • Is excited about the idea of taking ownership of our reporting - we’re looking for someone who is a self-starter and motivated to lead the reporting and analysis throughout our company.
