At Storytel, we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. Storytel is Northern Europe's largest audiobook streaming service and we offer hundreds of thousands of audiobooks and ebooks to customers in 20 markets. 

We also believe in the power of data. As we continue to reinforce our focus on analytics, we are looking to strengthen our Intelligence group with a talented and driven Data Architect. This is a critical role that will be instrumental in setting up the basis of a truly data-driven company.

About the role

The Intelligence team comprises a Data Science team and a Business Intelligence team, both working closely with Storytel’s various Business functions and our Tech organisation. We deliver reports to support business decisions as well as algorithms aiming to improve our operations and the customer’s experience. 

Together with the Head of the Intelligence team , you will be responsible for developing the architecture roadmap enabling our data science projects, visualization needs and business reporting, while setting the guidelines for improved governance. The role is both strategic and hands-on as there is a need to optimize the current data pipelines. 

You report to the Head of the Intelligence group and act as a bridge between us and the Tech organization. 

Your responsibilities

In close collaboration with your colleagues from the Intelligence team and the Tech organisation, your goal is to design and build a strong and reliable data foundation that will support both our data scientists’ explorative and modelling needs as well as the BI teams’ analysis and business reporting. 

More specifically you will be in charge of:

  • Developing an architecture roadmap to support our data science and reporting activities
  • Implementing the data structure as defined in the architecture roadmap
  • Designing and building data pipelines to form the data foundation
  • Setting-up a robust governance process to improve data quality
  • Developing and maintaining an overview of our data sources, pipelines, and models
  • Aligning our roadmap with Tech organization, highlighting dependencies

Your profile

  • You hold a university degree in Computer Science, Business Intelligence or other relevant field. 
  • You have previously gained a solid experience with data modelling, data warehouses and/or data lakes and their inherent governance processes. 
  • To succeed in this role, we believe that you have a versatile knowledge of database design, data modelling and that you are well acquainted with integrations methods. 
  • You are used to propose architecture artefacts, standards and patterns as well as implementing processes to ensure those are followed.
  • We will also value experience with Google Cloud tools such BigQuery, Composer, Dataflow and with SAS technology. Prior involvement in data science projects is a very good merit.

As a person, you thrive best in a working environment offering both hands-on and strategic activities. You have the ability to support team members in their architectural short-term needs while not compromising on our long-term quality goal.

As a truly international company, English is our working language and your direct colleagues from the Intelligence team are based in Stockholm, Barcelona and Copenhagen. For this position, we are primarily looking for candidates who aim to be based in our Stockholm office.
