Octopus is a fast-growing company with more than 500 employees. Since we launched in 2000, we’ve established market leading positions across financial services, healthcare and energy.
The Octopus Group incorporates Octopus Energy, Octopus Healthcare, Octopus Investments, Octopus Property, Octopus Ventures and Octopus Labs.
Octopus Labs is the fintech innovation unit of the Octopus Group. We fuse track record and technology, expertise and UX, to build financial products the way they should be: trustworthy, rewarding and easy-to-use.
We’re not your typical financial services company. We want to change the world of finance for the better, with easy-to-use products and services that help people to manage their money. We combine established financial expertise with cutting-edge technology to build smart, simple and disruptive fintech solutions for the mass market – like Octopus Choice and Octopus Cash.
18 months ago, we launched our first product, a peer-to-peer lending platform called Octopus Choice. We now have over 5,000 customers who have together invested more than £110 million, and are growing at a rapid pace.
Working at Octopus Labs provides an opportunity to combine the exciting pace and confidence of a start-up, with the broader benefits of a large, well-capitalised business that manages more than £7 billion on behalf of over 100,000 customers.
About the role
We have a great opportunity for an analytical, energetic and results-oriented data analyst to join us at Octopus Labs, as we enter a rapid phase of acquisition and growth across our products. You’ll be involved in the full range of data analytics activities, working with internal teams to generate insights that drive growth initiatives and influence business decisions.
What you’ll be doing: essential job functions
What we’re looking for: job specific skills and experience
We’re looking for an enthusiastic, curious and quantitative individual who loves bringing shape and rigour to a vision and ensure stuff gets done. You’ll be the kind of person who:
Be helpful: random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place so, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile.
Be straightforward: life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others. Sometimes the simplest approach works wonders.
Be bold: every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself
