We are looking for experienced data analytics experts to dig deeper into the topics of growth and operational analytics. Both roles sit within the wider analytics team which touches upon all areas of the bank - analysing our operational data, providing insights on our customers and sharing data-derived strategic input to wider Starling teams for both improved customer experience and efficiency gains for the bank.

  • Identify the appropriate data sources and statistical techniques required to assist the team to track against KPIs
  • Create and share data-led hypotheses and actionable insights with the team to optimise growth marketing and/or operational performance


We’re open-minded when it comes to hiring and we care more about aptitude and attitude than specific experience or qualifications. If you care enough to find elegant solutions to difficult technical problems, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Experience with visualization tools, specific experience of using Looker and LookML would be an advantage

We’re open to applications from across the UK including fully remote, if you’re hybrid our preference is that you’re located within a commutable distance to either our London, Southampton or Cardiff office, so that we’re able to see each other and collaborate in person too.
