Business Analyst

Amsterdam

 

Picnic is data-driven and complex – from pricing strategies, forecasting, warehouse automation, to the ever-expanding growth of our company, we are constantly faced with new challenges and opportunities…that’s where you come in! 

We are on the hunt for business analysts who present their understanding of what drives consumer behavior and operational efficiency. You’ll glean actionable insights from large data sets - but your eyes won’t be glued to data all day! You also offer entrepreneurial, realistic, and practical business opportunities.

Have a forward-thinking idea? Tell your team, modify it, evaluate, experiment, and then make a real impact in our company!

 Your responsibilities

  • Drive implementation and improvement of projects from kick-off until the final whistle
  • Design, implement and evaluate numerous experiments
  • Optimize tools, systems and business processes
  • Relentless focus on creating habit-forming product ideas

You

You combine first-class analytical skills with a creative and problem-solving mindset. You don’t only see numbers in data sets, but you see opportunities.

As an innovative thinker you constantly generate your own ideas. You’re also ambitious – you come up with smart solutions, not easy ones.

Superior presentation and communication skills allow you to convert complexity into digestible information for your team. You are confident and take ownership of your projects, but also collaborate with and motivate your colleagues!

Basic requirements

  • Master’s degree in Engineering, Econometrics, Mathematics, Physics or equivalent
  • 0-5 years of experience in a role such as strategy consulting
  • Excellent Excel and data analysis skills
  • Fluency in both verbal and written English
  • Holder of an EU work permit

In our modern Amsterdam office, you will have the freedom to experiment and evolve your own projects as well as the chance to test them on real customers. We offer you training in both professional basics, such as 'presenting with confidence' and 'impactful feedback', and hard skill workshops, such as a SQL and Python training. We also offer Dutch language classes for our international colleagues.

You will be part of an international, all-star team of ground-breaking entrepreneurs, brilliant engineers, and data wizards that work with desire and dedication each day. But don’t worry, at Picnic groceries aren’t a chore – we play as hard as we work!
