GoCardless is building a new global network for recurring bank-to-bank payments. We’re cutting out the intermediaries and linking together direct debit schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments directly from customers’ bank accounts.
Our API powers recurring payments for companies like the Financial Times, Thomas Cook and Nutmeg. It also enables partners including Quickbooks, Xero and Sage to help tens of thousands of small businesses to save countless hours spent chasing customers for payments.
As an experienced BI practitioner you’ll bring your expertise to bear on our data and business, building out our BI capabilities with the Marketing function. Your key contribution will be to define, generate, analyse, interpret and communicate the metrics which underpin our sales and marketing objectives. You’ll help the UK and International marketing managers make better, faster, more data-driven decisions and develop an expert knowledge of all areas of our global marketing operation.
You’ll sit within our Marketing Operations function with a dotted line to our data and BI teams. You’ll be required to work with technical and non-technical people across the whole company, from Operations to Marketing to Sales.
The main elements of this role will involve:
Some example of the types of challenges that you’ll help the business with:
“Should we be investing more in PPC or Content syndication activities this QTR?”
"Is event XYZ generating us significant ROI and worth continuing with this year?”
"What campaign activities are contributing the most to bottom line revenue?”
“Are the French Demand Generation programmes yielding the same CTR as that of the UK?”
“How is Channel XYZ performing YTD and YOY?”
“Which email within XYZ programme needs immediate attention for a content update?”
“Which channels are contributing the most to funnel stage X, Y or Z?”
Who we're looking for:
This role would suit someone with a minimum of 5 years experience having conducted a BI Analyst function exclusively within the marketing function of a SaaS or tech organisation.
We welcome a wide diversity of candidates from varying backgrounds – if you're unsure, please apply.
We’re building the payments network for the internet. Join us.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
