Do you want to be part of helping Britain achieve Net Zero?
Can you lead, work independently and support analysts?
Are you passionate about delivering complex solutions in a clear and simple manner?

Join EDF as an Analytics Engineer and support the development and maintenance of financial reporting and analytics systems, alongside the Finance Data Labs Manager. 


The opportunity…

This exciting role means you’ll be responsible for developing individual modules that fit into a wider systems framework and working with stakeholders to design and deliver a software engineering solution. Despite operating in a highly complicated data environment, the underlying ethos of the team is to keep it simple and get it done!

This varied and interesting role means you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Work with other analysts to gather business understanding to design the build solution
  • Support less technical analysts in the finance community
  • Create back-end development; responsible for collating data, data analysis and computations to implement business logic
  • Grow front end development; developing Graphic User Interphase (GUI) tools to ease access to data, help dynamic analysis, and provide reporting solutions
  • Develop and expand database solutions to store and help access processed data; this involves designing new database tables and table optimising indexes.
  • Deliver in-house developed data and IT solutions under a DevOps framework which are faster and more affordable than legacy waterfall IT projects

What we’re looking for…

You’ll be a person who enjoys taking independent ownership of a task, or a development module, to deliver a solution. You’ll have good communication skills, an ability to discuss technical subjects with technical colleagues and explain complex scenarios to less technical people. 

We need a person with a wide coding/programming experience and capability on reporting, analysis, and data visualisation in a professional or corporate environment. Ideally, you’ll also have knowledge of the UK Energy Markets and/or Credit Risk analysis. 

You’ll have expertise in: 

  • GitHub
  • SQL
  • Reactive programming (i.e., Shiny, React JS, Dash)
  • R and/or Python
  • Proficient in R and/or Python, focused on data analysis and visualisation with libraries such as:
    • Tidyverse (i.e. dplyr, dbplyr, ggplot2)
    • Shiny
    • R Markdown / Quarto
    • Plotly
    • Pandas
    • Numpy
