BI Engineer

's Mission

GoCardless is on a mission to take the pain out of getting paid for businesses with recurring revenue.

What you'll be doing

  • Developing coherent and performant data models that transforms large, complex and disparate datasets into the basis for explorable, understandable and accurate data products
  • Building end-to-end BI solutions from ETL through to data modelling and on to front end dashboards
  • Collaborating with engineers to prototype, design and build pipelines which take raw data from production systems and deliver them in a format suitable for analytic workloads
  • Supporting people across the company to enable them to self-serve Business Intelligence through BI tools - we’re using dbt and Looker at GoCardless.
  • Building BI tooling that fully leverages the capabilities of Google Cloud Platform and BigQuery
  • Collaborating with BI Analysts and other data teams to create a data architecture that powers their deep-dive analysis to both test specific hypotheses and generate new business insights
  • Collaborating with our team of Data Infrastructure Engineers to design and implement ingestion pipelines for new data sources, leveraging their tooling to expand the breadth of the GoCardless data warehouse


  • You’re good at quickly getting a grasp of any dataset that you’re working with
  • You’ll have experienced the technical problems of setting up self-serve BI and be interested in the technology behind the scenes
  • You’ll be able to demonstrate how you have automated repetitive tasks and built robust ETL pipelines
  • You have commercial experience in a fast moving company
  • You have excellent SQL skills and experience of scripting languages like Python
  • Experience with Big Data technologies (e.g. BigQuery, Snowflake) and working with data at significant scale
  • You have a firm grasp of self-serve data tools like Looker, Tableau, QlikView or similar. We’re using Looker at GoCardless.
  • You can communicate your work clearly to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • You are as comfortable sourcing data from third party APIs as you are with discussing data modelling approaches
