About the role
We are looking for an Analytics Engineer to join our Product Analytics team within our product and tech department. The role empowers you with freedom for initiative and ownership, spanning across a large spectrum of areas, from consolidating the data warehouse with scalable data pipelines, to implement anomaly detection systems for improving the data quality, to data mining and data science techniques to build insights that could potentially be used by the product teams to formulate hypothesis and new iterations of the products.

Who you are
•Experience in building and optimizing ‘big data’ data pipelines, architectures and data sets
•Python and Java or Scala
•AWS cloud environment: Glue, Athena, Redshift
•Workflow management tools such as Airflow
•Pragmatic mindset and can reason around trade-offs on what to optimise for in your solutions
•Analytics skills and solution design

Nice to haves
•Product Analytics experience
•Cross-team collaboration and cross-functional team experience
•Looker or other BI tool experience

If you do not have direct experience with either tool, no problem! We are happy to develop you in these areas. Success will be measured by the increase in the data products usage, new product development within the team, feasibility, and innovation.

Where you’ll be:
• Most of our teams are hybrids with some members co-located in offices and some working fully remote. With a remote-first way of working we want you to feel productive regardless of work location!
• Where in the world? For this role, it can be within the UK or Sweden
• Working hours? We want to avoid teams distributed over time zones, so this team will operate within the CET time zone for collaboration. This setup allows us for more flexibility and work-life balance.
Acast is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin or any of the other wonderful characteristics that make us different.

Culture is our number one priority as a business. We believe people come first, and we work every day to enable autonomy, continuous improvement and bring out the best in people. We’re global and have remote teams, so it’s even more important that we strive for an open, inclusive and caring environment where everyone feels visible and welcome. We consider ourselves a modern organization driven by strong values to create the best, most fulfilling and nurturing culture.

We very much look forward to finding the next great person to join our cause!
