You will be part of a thriving organisation with a collective ambition to fully embrace data as our most precious commodity. The way we work and organise ourselves at dataWorx ensures a clear path to achieving this objective. 

  • We have a dynamic structure: Line management and career development are driven via ‘disciplines’ while multidisciplinary ‘squads’ provide the opportunity to gain new skills by working on a digital initiative for a given period of time.
  • We prioritise high value initiatives: We prioritise the work that we do based on value to ensure we’re focusing our efforts on the most critical business needs and aren’t afraid to stop if they’re not delivering value.
  • To speed up delivery of high-value digital products, we form fully dedicated, multidisciplinary squads that follow agile delivery methods.
  • We set global standards and consistency: We apply consistent standards across our workflows to ‘free the data’, improve data ownership, and avoid duplications and inefficiencies.
  • We provide a career home: We don’t see data as just a job, we create clear career pathways for our data professionals to deepen and broaden their expertise, and continuously support them along their journey.
