BI Developer - Power BI experience - Contract - Up to £750pd - Hedge Fund - London

BI Developer with Data Visualization experience in PowerBI is required for a market leading hedge fund based in London. The successful candidate will have a keen interest in Business Intelligence but will also be experienced within the Data Visualization world using Power BI. You will be tested in depth and breadth on your Power BI so we need someone with a couple of commercial years' experience.

BI team has also built a full CD/CI environment for the BI tooling, with full automated test suites to enable rapid prototyping, development and deployment processes with low failure rates. This toolset has been built with Powershell, TeamCity and Octopus deploy, and this role will use this heavily as well be expected to extend and enhance it from time to time.

This role will suit either a pure-play and full stack BI developer who has had some exposure to writing code (in C# or similar, and JavaScript) or Scripting (in Powershell or other languages such as Python), or alternatively a C#/JavaScript developer with good SQL skills who wants to move into the data analysis world.

This is a Front Office role so you will need to be able to face off to the business on a daily basis so clear communication skills are key.

Required skills:

  • Advanced Microsoft SQL Server Development and data analytical skills
  • Understanding of the basic concepts of visualisation

Required skills:

  • BI Experience
    • Analysis Services (or equivalent OLAP tool)
    • Reporting Services (or equivalent reporting tool)
    • PowerBI (or equivalent, such as Tableau, Spotfire, Qlikview, etc.)
  • Development Experience (Back End)
    • C#/WebAPI
    • Some Front End development (Javascript)

Experience in the Microsoft BI stack - SQL Server (2012-2017), Analysis Services (Including Tabular Models), PowerBI desktop and Reporting Services.

Exceptional SQL and data analysis skills, with the ability to transform data to feed models without an ETL layer is essential.

Experience implementing and supporting Self-service BI tools such as Tableau, QlikView or Microsoft PowerBI/Excel (PowerPivot, PowerQuery).

Datamodelling, along with OLAP/Cube experience (MDX/DAX), with demonstrable capabilities in this area.

Exposure to automation tools (Control-M, Active Batch etc.) or Continuous Integration (Octopus, Chef, Puppet, etc.) would be useful but not required. My client uses Team-City/Octopus as well as Active Batch.

Knowledge of automation scripts such as Powershell would be highly advantageous.

This role is a 6 month rolling contract paying up to £750pd depending on level of experience but my client is also open to entertaining this on a permanent basis as well.
