Webinar: Learn how to build a data team with Blue Light Card! Register now to join us on the 30th June!
Thinking about building a data function in your scale-up? To become a data-driven business you need data focussed individuals. You don’t necessarily need a data team at the outset and you’re unlikely to have the resources to be able to do so. But as you grow, developing a team focussed on data will fast track your growth, providing the rest of the business with actionable insight. Before starting the hiring process you need to understand the difference between data professionals, to identify which position would be the best fit for your scale-up. Do you want to hire a Data Analyst, Engineer or Scientist? Do you need all three, or just one? What does the hiring process look like?
kleene was built for Analysts, by Analysts, so we think they’re pretty important in a business. To discover what they can do for you, check out our blog What is a Data Analyst & what can they do for your business?
Once you know what they do and if you need one, you need to know how to hire a Data Analyst.
When hiring, you need to know which skills you’re looking for and how to recognise them in your candidates. A Data Analyst should be able to apply a scientific methodology to business questions. The role combines mathematical, analytical and problem solving skills, with interpersonal and teamwork skills.
A Data Analyst will typically come from a STEM or Economics background, be highly numerate, with a strong understanding of maths and statistics.
Not ready to take the next step? Don’t worry if you’re not able to hire a Data Analyst right now. Here at kleene, we offer Analytics as a Service. With kleene software and a dedicated Analyst, you’ll be able to uncover critical insight and power growth.
