Senior Business Analyst - Commercial Insights

Who we are

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across exceptional objects such as these every day. 

Catawiki is the leading online marketplace to buy and sell special objects. We offer over 75,000 special objects in auction every week — each reviewed and selected by one of Catawiki’s hundreds of in-house experts specialised in Art, Design, Jewellery, Fashion, Classic Cars, Collectables and many more.

We've sold 10 million unique items to date and it’s our mission to become the world’s most popular auction destination for special objects.

We’re an innovative, pioneering and fast-growing scale-up. If you think you can make a difference to our team, go ahead and apply.

About the role and team

With thousands of active lots every day, hundreds of thousands of daily bids, millions of users, and billions of events, the Catawiki platform generates vast amounts of data every day. All this data is being collected and stored, and used extensively by our team of 18 data scientists and engineers that want to build a better company by using data in a smart way. At Catawiki, we believe in using data for making decisions, and the Data Science & Analytics team plays an important role in that. 

We’re looking for a Senior Business Analyst to become the Data Business Partner of our Categories (Luxury Goods, Art, Interiors, and Collectables), in close collaboration with their dedicated Finance Business Partners.

Your role will be to analyse current business trends and to derive actionable insights in order to support our categories in shifting their commercial strategy when and where needed (supply, demand, curation etc).

You will be a trusted business partner for them, who is actively participating in the decision-making, regularly identifying new business opportunities, and setting your own agenda balancing their different requests & expectations in alignment with them.

You will be part of the Data Science Insights team. 

What you’ll do 

  • You will be combining data points from different data sources in order to find trends and opportunities in the data and make recommendations for improvements to the business strategy
  • You will help define key metrics that drive the performance of categories, and make these accessible to stakeholders through dashboards and reports.
  • You will work closely with both our Finance Business Partners and the General Managers of our four clusters (Luxury Goods, Art, Interiors, and Collectables), becoming a trusted partner for them in their strategic decisions.
  • You will set your own agenda with your stakeholders: this is a role with a high degree of autonomy and leadership, meaning you are in charge of defining where the biggest opportunities are and of aligning with your stakeholders.
  • As part of the Data Science Insights team, you will also help us enrich and maintain our data warehouse as well as develop data accessibility across the entire company.
  • As a Senior team member, you will share your expertise with the rest of the Data team, mentoring other team members to turn data into insights and proactively contributing to introducing new techniques and ways of working within the team. 

Who you are 

  • An experienced Data Analyst / Business Analyst with a strong quantitative background and 5+ years of relevant experience
  • Proven ability to extract meaning from big datasets with little engineering support: you’re a SQL Ninja. You also know your way around when it comes to spreadsheets and data visualisation tools (Google Data Studio, Tableau, Looker etc). Ideally you have experience with Python or R.
  • Commercially-minded: what excites you about data is to create concrete commercial opportunities and foster change in the company.
  • You are autonomous in assessing precisely what to investigate and how: you know how to uncover the real problem behind the questions you receive from various stakeholders, how to connect the dots when needed, and how to provide actionable conclusions from your insights.
  • Strong communication skills and being able to work at a fast pace with business owners and VP-level management.
  • Proven stakeholder management experience: you are comfortable with managing multiple’s stakeholders expectations both in terms of timing and outcome. You know why, when and how to challenge them in an effective manner. Prioritisation is always on your mind. You do this not only for your own work, but also as much as possible for any project or initiative you are involved in.
  • An entrepreneurial mindset that enables you to get things done, also if that requires actions outside your own area or comfort zone.

What we offer

This is your chance to join our mission to fulfil people’s passions, as part of a young and dynamic organisation. You'll be part of an enthusiastic, highly-motivated team of 750+ Catawikians. Additionally, you can expect:

  • A fast and sustainably growing tech company
  • A diverse team of 50+ nationalities
  • Tailored learning and development opportunities to support your personal and professional growth

Our offices and new way of working

We’ve embraced an activity-based way of working, meaning our team can choose how they split their work week between home and the office, in line with our remote framework and guidelines.
