Senior Business Intelligence Engineer Buckfastleigh, Devon c£45,000 DOE Plus Benefits About Riverford We're mad about organic veg. It's at the core of everything we do. We love to grow it, pack it into boxes and deliver it to customers' doorsteps around the UK. This takes a lot of brilliant people, with a range of skills and knowledge. Riverford began in 1986, with a few acres of veg, a wheelbarrow and a beaten up 2CV for deliveries. We've grown into a successful e-commerce business, with four farms, three packhouses, a fleet of vans and drivers, a wholesalers, butchery, organic restaurant and pub. We employ people across many areas including IT, Logistics, Sales, HR, Finance and Marketing (and more besides). Our culture and values set us apart from other businesses. Riverford is a friendly, informal place to work, with a passionate, entrepreneurial spirit. We're committed to providing a fair deal for growers, customers and staff.

Communication is key, as will the ability to clearly and confidently outline and defend decisions, approaches and conclusions.

Most of all though, you will want to work with like-minded and highly capable people to deliver fantastic ethical and delicious products steered by your team's insight.

You are likely to have strong experience in business intelligence, analytics or quantitative analysis around commerce, forecasting etc. You will have worked with large-scale e-commerce systems and medium-large scale integrated organisations before, delivering insight and intelligence.
