Senior Data Strategist
Design | London, UK | Full Time
At Globant, we dream and build Digital Journeys that matter to millions of users. We do that by leveraging engineering, design and innovation with our own industry-leading practices, like our Agile PODs and specialized Studios.
We want you to join us in creating these journeys for the biggest clients in tech, retail, travel, banking, ecommerce and media, revolutionizing and growing their core businesses while helping them (and you!) stay ahead of the curve.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Senior Data Strategists help client organisations manage their data assets and find the best way to surface insights from the data. They provide clear and actionable focus and direction for both internal teams and clients and are expected to originate new work, develop proposals and lead pitches. They are industry leads, sought by clients and recognised as an authority in their area of specialism. They support the leadership team (Consultant Partners & Directors) in the delivery of the overall Consulting business vision and mentor/coach more junior staff in order to nurture their capability and long-term development.
YOU’LL GET THE CHANCE TO:
Act as a ‘data strategy’ evangelist - seeking opportunities and creating initiatives to inspire clients and build long-standing, consultative relationships at a senior level.
Be highly consultative in nature - working with clients to understand their challenges and frustrations and defining opportunities for ways to solve them - especially those relating to a lack of common knowledge and understanding of data across different functions within an organisation.
Provide clear direction on large, complex data-driven projects (as well as on smaller data initiatives that form part of a wider challenge) in order to focus the client and teams on the right things at the right time.
Lead data-led client initiatives by analysing business needs, understanding the technical landscape, scoping ideas, clarifying use cases and developing suitable short and long-term data strategies.
Work with data scientists, data analysts, technical leads and programmers to explore different approaches to working with data, and determine tools that provide solutions to data challenges.
Conduct behavioural analysis, pattern detection, sentiment analysis, descriptive and predictive analysis.
Design, develop and manage organisation-wide data roadmaps for clients.
WHAT WILL HELP YOU SUCCEED:
Several years experience at a senior level leading the strategic direction of major work-streams / client projects on behalf of blue-chip organisations.
Highly proficient with the interpretation and use of data - both quantitative and qualitative - to inform strategic recommendations.
A Degree and/or Master’s qualification in a related field.
Our company culture is about being smart but not stuffy, independent yet collaborative, telling it like it is yet being respectful, and hard-working without overworking. We reward innovation, sharing and collaboration - and support continuous personal development.
At Globant we strive daily to deliver powerful customer-led solutions for our clients through our unique Digital Journey approach. Our passion for data and technology reverberates in every area of our organisation and drives our creativity. Working for us means being at the convergence of engineering, design, innovation and scale.
Inside Globant, we form Globant Consulting (formerly WAE, recently acquired by Globant), a leading customer experience and service design consultancy that delivers transformation by putting the customer at the heart of the business.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of consultants and designers that help organisations deliver emotionally relevant data-driven experiences. We bring emotional intelligence to data and use
technology to enable smarter experiences.
